    Details below :
    Quinolones may lower the seizure threshold and they should be used with
    caution in patients with a history of epilepsy or conditions that predispose to
    seizures. The risk of convulsions is increased if quinolones are administered
    concomitantly with NSAIDs such as Voltarol (diclofenac). Absorption of
    levofloxacin may be impaired by antacids. Gaviscon (an antacid) should be
    taken at a different time from that of levofloxacin. Tofranil contains imipramine,
    which is a tricyclic antidepressant that does not have a clinically significant
    drug interaction with levofloxacin.
