Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Took Cipro and Levaquin over 10 to 20 years due to severe sinus and bronchitis. I was allergic to Penicillin and physicians would prescribe these frequently. December 2011 I took Levaquin and Predisone for 8 Days. I had an adverse reaction similar to stroke. I have been disabled since due to extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, severe pain in my extremities, joints, and muscles. I can't walk for long or sit upright for 2 hours without severe weakness and tremors.
