From this study (1 month ago):
I thought i was having a bronchitis episode from my copd to i took amoxicillin and prednesone, a week later i wasnt getting better so went to my doc, turns out it was pneumonia, so he put me on levofloxacin a few days later i noticed major swelling in my legs and he fact they were turning super red, back to the doctor who now says i have cellulitis, so he gives me cephalexin and furosemide, now 7 days later the redness in the legs is a tad bit better, but i still have the burning tingling and pins and needles and the water retention has gone down NONE... any thoughts to what is causing this??

I need to know the interactions
From this study (13 months ago):
One day after my last dose of prednisone, I woke up at 3am having trouble breathing, tightness in my chest, feeling as if not enough air in the room, rapid heart rate, coughing, feeling of panic, jittery, feeling cotton-mouthed, increased urination and high blood pressure. This went on for 2 hours before subsiding. For the next several days these "attacks" have continued in waves on and off throughout the day and night. It's been 6 day since coming off prednisone. My dosage was 3 tabs a day x 3 days, 2 tabs a day x 3 days and 1 tab a day x 3 days.

Took this for 6 days, tapering at the end to treat a rash caused by a spider bite. The heartburn started on day 1 but the other symptoms didn't begin until day 4. None we're severe but they weren't fun either. The blurred vision was worst.
