Hi there!

Though norfloxacin is a suitable antibiotic for most urinary tract infections, it would be difficult to say if it would be a suitable antibiotic in your case without a culture and sensitivity test. Norfloxacin May slightly increase the blood levels of methotrexate and methotrexate may slightly decrease the blood levels of norfloxacin; since the effect is minor in adults, the two medications can be take simultaneously.
Hope this information helps.

Take care!
