Levaquin? Anyone ever take it? I'm nervous!
« on: December 14, 2013, 05:34:14 PM »
Have a bad sinus infection. Dr prescribed levaquin 500mg 1x a day for 14 days. Taking meds makes me so nervous. Worried it will hurt me. Anyone have experience with this drug? Need some reassurance. Just took first dose. Thanks!

I had a severe reaction to it. But I'm sensitive to a lot of meds.

Dr said I took it last yr... So hoping if I was ok with it then, that I will be now.

I wouldn't take this drug if you paid me to.  I still blame this particular drug for giving my daughter peripheral neuropathy in her feet.  God, did she ever suffer.  As a matter of fact, she still is not fully okay.  TAKE SOMETHING ELSE PLEASE!!!!

I took it for an upper respiratory infection & ear infection that 3 other drugs failed to relieve.  I was also scared to take it, but had absolutely no problems and it worked.  The worst part about it was that i was nursing my 7 month old (at that time) and had to stop nursing him (had to pump & dump) for 2 weeks (i took it for 10 days) everything was fine after that.  You will be fine. It is better just to take it & not think that much about it or you will start getting psychosomatic symptoms - part of the HA, not the drug.

Thank you. Your reply has been very helpful. Sorry about the pump and dump I know how hard that is. My daughter is 2.5 now but when she was younger I had to do the same thing. It's really hard! Especially when you struggle to produce enough to begin with.
