- Levaquin and confusion symptoms
Confusion. Stopped dosage at day 6 of 7; prescribed 500 mg. 1 daily. I thought the confusion was from the weeks of pretty severe coughing symptoms, associated with the sinusitus - thought maybe from a lack of oxygen from not being able to breathe well for so long. I finally stopped the med. when ...

After pneumonia treatment I became ill was diagnosed with CIDP
From this study (2 days ago):
In a 3 month period I used levaquin twice for two weeks and floxin once for two weeks as treatment for pneumonia. Six months later I was originally diagnosed with Guillen Barre after being unable to use my legs. It took 6 months to get in to see the neuroloigist and symptoms went away 1 week later. Next year I had something similar. This has gone and returned to where it eventually has become permanent. My feet are numb and hands and arms becoming so. I am bedridden most of the time and in severe pain that the highest dose of opiodes cannot completely take away. I have severe breathing problems. Thankfully this is no longer getting worse due to treatment with IVIG. I left out the final diagnosis is that I have CIDP- If my neurologist had been able to agree and start treatment sooner I would not be in as nearly as bad of shape as I am. I was diagnosed 8 years ago but after insurance wanted a second opinion I went to a specialist at UCSF who determined it was not CIDP he did not know what it was his thought was it was rheumatic. Anyway 7 neurologist later it is now definitely CIDP. For a while they though it was Charcot Marie Toothe, genetic testing could not rule it out but could not rule it in either. After my final neurologist put me in the hospital for IVIG treatment, which helped my feet to no longer feel numb temporarily, we now know it is CIDP. I now think it was the drugs that they used to treat my pneumonia started this whole problem 20 years ago.
From this study (1 year ago):
I completed the antibiotic, and since its completion, I am seeming to have side effects continuing to appear.
I have a history of eczema, and my skin has been very itchy. I started using a tea tree oil soap, and question if this is also taking away "good" flora and is exacerbating the yeast on my skin.
