My thirteen year old son(140 lbs) had a strong bacterial infection involving his salivary glands. His face was very swollen. In order to avoid hospitalization(IV), the doctor prescribed avalox. He finished it 2 days ago. When is it safe to return to bball(his passion) w/out risk to his tendons?This is his life and he is distraught. He is an integral part of 2 teams, but we obviously do not want to compromise his health. ## I suggest speaking to his doctor about this, that way you will get advice on the safest time frame. ## i am a 57 y/o female with polycyctic kidney disease post transplant jul 5 2000 and i have been on predisone ever since.

use of avalox

my wife's doctor prescribed avalox for a kidney infection, pending results of urine c&s ... any rationale to support that choice? ## nothing ## Yes, there is plenty of evidence to support using Avelox for a UTI, however there are a LOT safer choices for a UTI than Avelox. Avelox Side Effects, while rare, can be absolutely devastating and can cause lifelong disabilities. Personally, with what I know about Quinolone Antibiotics, the class of drugs that Avelox is in, I would never use them for anything but a life threatening infection where there was no other alternative. The side effects are too disastrous to use these drugs for a common infection with so many alternative drugs.
