Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Will my short-term memory loss, caused by levaquin, every go away?
    I wonder if the clinic that gave me the Levaquin purposely harmed me. I have many drug allergies, and I wasn't given the drug sheet that shows that Lavaquin has a Black Box warning. They refused to give me an antibiotic I knew I could safely take. I'm being "haunted" by P.I.s.
  • Warfarin and urinary infections (1 answer)
    HELP! Hello we are in the UK - my husband had an aortic valve replacement 4 years ago - he is now 61 and on warfarin. Over the past few years, since his AVR, he has had about 4/5 urinary infections which have caused him to be hospitalised with very high temperature/rigors etc. The medical profession in the UK seem to think there is no correlation between warfarin and urinary infections. He has been checked out to see if there is a problem with his bladder/prostrate/kidneys but all are okay and the only link we can see is when his warfarin is increased to a high dose (10mg or above) he gets this infection.

    Has anyone else experienced this or does anyone know where I could go for more information on a possible link?

    Thank you for your help.

  • Urinary track infection and bydureon
    After 7 weeks of nausea vomiting and diarrhea I got a uti that was hard to get rid of. I also have an inflammation of sacaril nerve. Have had antibiotics and steroids. It is still hurting after 2 months.Don't know if this is connected but is a fact.
  • Acne breakout from anitbiotics
    I am taking two antibiotics but I don't know if one or both are causing a major acne breakout..At 45 years old, I rarely got acne but since taking oral antibiotics I had a severe acne breakout mostly on my forehead..what the hell is going on? Why is this happening and what can I do to fix it besides basic acne treatment..Is there a food or different method to reduce the breakouts?
  • Levaquin side effects
    Prescribed for COPD flare-up, along with a 10 day course of prednisone. On day 5, I experienced extreme irritability. I was imagining what it would be like to shoot my husband. He had kicked me in his sleep and I was very seriously thinking of shooting that foot. I got up and secured the gun. However, the anger stayed with me.

    On day 9, my knees were so swollen that I could not bend my legs. It hurt to walk. I could not get up and down without assistance.

    3 weeks after discontinuing the medication, I still have tenderness and knee pain. I had to cut my hours at work because of the pain.
  • Levaquin toxicity plus alot of cirpro and prednisone (1 response)
    Boo, could you email me.. I took a ton of cipro over 25 years with problems and was told I had cfs. I took 42 pills of levaquin with prednisone, it blew me apart like a bomb, for mere bronchitis.. I was electrocuted for 15 months, now my heart pounds non stop, cant move barely, have terrors that surpass any anxiety as it seems to have damaged my cns system. I cannot get any help and pray to die as I cant stay like his.. I will never be able to put into words what this has done to me.. rykerjem860@outlook.com.. I cannot process any meds now, my entire system is altered. I was very weak and low functioning when I took these but had a life.. I cannot eat, sleep move and am hysterical most of the time. No doc out of 80 can help me though they see my entire system is damamged and my cns.. I need a miracle.. rykerjem860@outlook.com
  • 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 "dementia-type" symptoms were apparent, night following dose #6, I was having difficulty determining which (of 2) pieces of hardware at our master bathroom sink, was the soap and which was the water (have lived here 15 years). I had been having many occurences of confusion for the majority of the 6 days on Levaquin and had been saying I was often feeling "so confused" for several days but none so apparent as this was. I am a long time mental health counselor and realized this was what I understand dementia symptoms resemble, stopped the med. Had M.D. appt. next day, he agreed stop good idea, put me on prednisone. Did research this morning before beginning prednisone & am not going to take it, due to reading it may increase negative side effects of the Levaquin. I am also e-mailing your website info. to my M.D. as I am also treated for depression and anxiety symptoms and fear symptoms will worsen. This is day 2 off the med., no improvement in confusion symptoms YET, I am hopeful that people wrote in soon after their negative experiences and that the confusion symptoms will resolve (soon.)
