  • Cinder Lux on Apr, 2, 2014:

    Im 27, F. Im taking levofloxacin for a UTI and i was given a qty of 5 tablets. I noticed extreme nasal congestion and knew it was from the pill. This is the second tablet i take and immediately after im congested again. Nasal sprays help and with an hour or two the congestions fades a bit. However its still quite annoying.
