 1  Infection in the parotid gland After 9 days I could barely get out of bed. Excruciating fatigue and back pain which continue to move into my muscles on to my joints - cold sweats, stomach pain & nausea, headaches, complete energy drain, weird taste in my mouth, hypoglycemic attacks, NEVER EVER WILL I TAKE THIS medicine AGAIN, & hope I get better, 2 days after stopping meds & slowly coming back, I hope! F 56 9 days

 1  Pneumonia- misdiagnosed! 4 years later, still suffering side effects! Ruined my life! F 69 4 days
 1  Sinus infection Severe agitation and sleeplessness, couldnít understand why I was feeling so horrible and moody then looked up side effects. Iíve stopped taking and have 4 more doses. F 53 6 days
 1  resistant bacterial infection Sleeplessness, tendon weakness and pain in shoulders, either tendon or cartilage weakness and pain in knees, RA pain went from about a 1 to 10 overnight, tendons or ligaments in foot made foot feel like it was badly sprained, I would barely move for the 14 day course. My tendons all were snapping, my neck made scary cracking sounds when I moved it. It's been 3 mos since last pill and have some healing but still can only function at about 25% of pre-poisoning by Levofloxacin. I feel fortunate when I read others who are suffering so much worse than me. This along with all drugs in same class, Cipro, Levaquin, and many others, should NOT be used unless a culture of the bacteria proves it is needed, that no other antibiotic will work. Even young people have dies or become disabled, and often with excrutiating pain that only high doses of opiates will alleviate, and docs will not prescribe that. Taking OTC NSAIDS very often worsen these horrible side effects and some people have been suffering for 20+ yrs. F 66 14 days

LEVOFLOXACIN  (LEVOFLOXACIN):  Levofloxacin is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as quinolone antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
