Community Expert Kerri Knox, RN Says:

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.
