Moxifloxacin and effect on the uvula

I have no evidence of a causal link, but have a clear temporal link from the antibiotic to a degradation of the uvula continuing months following. Had also tendonitis generally and slow to recede. Any one else? ## Moxifloxacin is a Fluoroquinolone, and this class of medications is known to carry the risk of causing tendonitis, and tendon rupture as side effects, along with nausea, sore throat, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. Ref: Moxifloxacin Information The tendonitis and sore throat side effects might explain the issues you've experienced. However, I must admit to being unsure of exactly what you mean by 'degradation of the uvula', so could you please expound on that? Thank you!

The Dr. Says it is an antibiotic. I just want to know the main active ingredients. Also, does it contain sulfa. ## I just want to know what company manufactured this product ## Yes, it is an antibiotic that contains the active ingredient Moxifloxacin. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Scooter, what are the markings on the one that has been dispensed to you? Can you please post back and clarify? Same question to the OP, I cannot check the details, without knowing more information.

Moxifloxacin wrong prescription

I recently had a sore throat, cold and fever. I found an old pack of my husband's Moxifloxacin 400 mg and on the first day I took two, on day 2, I took one dose. Then I looked up Moxifloxacin to make sure it was a bd dose, not od. Turns out the whole medicine was wrong. I felt dizzy a couple of times on both days. Should I stop takin it? Or continue once a day for 5 days?? ## Hello, Tans! How are you feeling?

effect of moxifloxacin on pregnancy

i want to know about moxifloxacin and its side effects during pregnancy ## Moxifloxacin, also called Avelox, is in a class of drugs known as the Quinolone antibiotics. Avelox Side Effects include such serious problems as damage to tendons, joints and muscles. These side effects can be so serious that they do not allow the use of them for children that are not fully grown yet due to the possibility of damage to the unformed bone and cartilage in children. These antibiotics also leach magnesium from the body, a serious problem for pregnant women that can lead to a condition known as toxemia of pregnancy that is quite dangerous.
