|1||eye infection||Severe tendonitis in both feet. Six months later I am still hobbling around in orthopedic boots.||who'd have thought EYE DROPS could do this?||F||52||7 days ||12/23/2008||1||eye infection||agitation, insomnia, depression, tendonitis, sinuses swelled shut, asthma reared up, this was quite a horrible experience. They are not unusual reactions to any drug that is a fluoroquinolone, but nobody believes EYE DROPS will do this. But they do. They roll down inside the tear duct and into the spongy absorbent nasal tissue and BAM! THe only way to get a more intense dose would be to inject it i.v.. This stuff is horrible. I wanted to be dead by the end of it.||I've had bad reactions to other fluoroquinolines and told the Dr. this, but she blew it off. NEVER AGAIN. From now on I'll just tell them I'm allergic to it and save myself the 10 days (effects keep on even once you stop taking it) of hell.||F||50||6 days ||8/26/2008|
QUIXIN (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)
