Levofloxacin and severe shoulder to elbow pain

Began 1st round antibiotic of Amoxicillin which wasn't working. After 3 days, had Dr call in new Rx of Augmentin which wasn't working. After 5 days, went back to urgent care and that's when the Dr. Prescribed 500 mg peach tablet of Levofloxacin taken once a day for 7 days. Started to bring my fever down on day 3 of it and the Dr told me I would have deep muscle pain while on it. Well, on day five I had deep muscle pain in legs and shoulders and arms. I have been off of the Rx for 3 days and I can't lift or move my upper arms without deep achy pain and popping. Getting some numbness and tingling too. Is this a permanent side effect as a result of taking this powerful antibiotic? I feel pain in my hips as well. I'm scared this drug has caused a debilitating result. Any...

I have 6 levofloxacin 500 mg tablets with an expiration date of 12-23-13. Will they still be effective? ## Medications do lost efficacy over time, so they may not work well enough to full eradicate an infection, according to NIH reports.

Is there anything else I can help with? ## Is Levofloxacin good after 5 yrs? What is the shelf life?

Levofloxacin And Amoxicillan

I've been prescribed Levfloxacin, and have one Amoxicillin left. Is ok to take both? ## How long have you been on Amoxicillin (about 7-10 days)? I would recommend finishing your cycle of Amoxicillin, so that you don't have to worry about the infection coming back. In any case, there are no drug interactions listed between these two medications, so taking them together should not be a problem at all in my honest opinion. Does this help answer your question? Please post back if there's anything else I can help you with. ## Hi, I have been sick for 2 weeks with a flu virus and my Dr gave me 18 prednisone pills (have 2 left), cough syp, and a prescription for Levofloxacin (if I needed it).

Poisoned, intentional,

In July of 2017, i was admitted in the hospital for fluid overload, (I am on dialysis) my primary doctor was there and ordered xrays for my chest and had said my chest was clear and he left. But the other residents lied to me and said that i had pneumonia. And they proceeded to give me bags of levoflaxacin through if. Since I've been home, i am experiencing a strange discharge, my jaw is swollen on my left side, i had high blood pressure, lupus, pacemaker and on dialysis. It is October and have not taken one blood pressure pill because my pressure drops significantly during dialysis, i believe it is because of the levoflaxacin. I was given medication that i did not want or need and i guess that this is ok because I am powerless to do anything about this. I am angry because I am stil...

How long does it take foe levofloxacin to get out of your system? ## Hello, Tammy! How are you? The FDA classifies this as an antibiotic and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Did you have a bad reaction to it? It may take about 2 weeks, after you stop taking it, for things to settle down and to feel more normal. ## Hi Tammy, Levofloxacin gets out of your system very quickly... just a few days to a week at the most. If you are experiencing problems from Levaquin, it's because they actually can lead to cellular and DNA damage. This damage is still there even when the drug is out of your system, in the same way that if you spilled acid on your hand, the damage to your skin would still be there even if ...

Medical Query

I was hospitalized for 3 days (Aug. 28th-31st) due to gastro/diarrhea. In the hospital the doctor gave me the following: 1. Seven vials of Erceflora 2. Three (100ml) vials of Levofloxacin 500mg 3. Four tabs of (40mg) Omeprazole. Because I felt itchiness on Levofloxacin, the doctor gave me 2 (500mg) tabs of Metronidazole. For home medication the doctor prescripted the following: 1. Metronidazole - 3x5 days = 15 2. Omeprazole - 1x5 days = 5 3. Erceflora - 3x3 days = 9 I feel dizzy, sometimes vomiting. I don't feel normal just yet. I already consumed the following take-home medications: 1. Metronidazole - 10 (5 left) 2. Omeprazole - 3 (2 left) 3. Erceflora - 5 (4 left) Can I stop or discontinue taking the medicine? Please help! Thanks.
