Avelox and suntanning

I am taking Avelox for broncitis. I am scheduled to go away on vacation 4 days after finishing my treatment, am I able to suntan? ## You can, although suntanning is never really safe, due to the risk of skin cancer, but you should be aware that you may still be more sensitive to the sun and heat, so you could burn sooner than usual, and you could experience heat stroke much faster than normal, according to the U.S. FDA. Thus, you should be careful about how long you spent in the sun/heat, and lessen your duration of exposure, accordingly, or use sun block. Is there anything else I can help with?

Avelox 400 mg

moxifloxacin HCI ## i have an arrytmia should i take avelox ## Hi Maria, Avelox is a drug that can lead to many problems, including arrhythmia. Many heart arrhythmias are due to a decrease of magnesium in the body (even if your magnesium level tested by your doctor is normal). Unfortunately, the mechanism of action of many of the Avelox Side Effects is through a reduction in magnesium in the body. This could potentially lead to worsening of symptoms. You should carefully read about the side effects of these drugs and decide if the risk is worth treating the infection, or if it might be better to call your doctor, tell him about your concerns, and ask for an alternative to Levaquin to treat your infection.

avelox and champix

Has anyone ever experienced a problem mixing avelox and champex together ## Hi Paul, There is no known interactions between these drugs, but that does not mean that there are not any, only that it may just never have been tested, or that there are not enough studies to determine whether or not there is an interaction. However, just taking Avelox with or without any other drugs can lead to a whole host of problems that you can learn about by going to the Avelox Side Effects page. The multitude of reports of severe and even disabling side effects may encourage you to ask your doctor if there are any alternate drugs that you can substitute for the Avelox. These drugs are dangerous drugs that should only be reserved for life threatening infections.

used for infection of ear and sinusis ## If you are taking Avelox, be sure that you thoroughly understand the Avelox Side Effects. While it's rare, Avelox can lead to severe disability that may be permanent. In any case, sinus infections are very often not even caused by bacteria- and bacterial infections are the only reason that you should ever take antibiotics. And ear infections are often 'self limiting', meaning that they go away on their own without treatment anyway. In cases where they don't, there are other antibiotics that can be used instead of avelox which can lead to such severe disability. You may want to speak to your doctor about an alternative to Avelox.
