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?

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.
