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.

From this study (1 week ago):
Patient was in constant pain with no ability to move (wasn't even able to pick a glass of water). No supplements were given while on Levofloxacin and inspite of family questioning the high dosage for an unconfirmed Koch's spine diagnosis, patient was prescribed 750mgs of Levoflox twice a day; making it 1.5 gms of the drug taken each day for almost 3 weeks.
