Summary: For males with a urinary tract infection, a 5-day course of levofloxacin (750 mg once daily) may provide the same likelihood of clinical treatment success as a 10 day course of ciprofloxacin (400 mg IV or 500 mg PO twice daily), and 5 day course of levofloxacin may provide a higher likelihood of clinical treatment success than a for 10 day course of ciprofloxacin for males with catheters, neurogenic bladder, or urinary retention.
