Shawn Hassig (3 years ago):
Male, 27 with Autism. Lives in USA on the west coast. May, 2012 Suffered cellulitis infection. Started on clindamycin for 7 days but switched to Levofloxacin. Within 3 days of taking Levofloxacin hallucinations started. Hallucinations stopped 24 hrs later after stopping medication but there still seems to be some neurological symptoms that have not gone away yet.
