Does the medicine Levaquin cause yeast infections in women?

Answers (1)

3 May 2011

Levaquin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. Like many antibiotics Levaquin can cause yeast infections, since they can get rid of "good" bacteria that help protect against yeast infections.
See your doctor or pharmacist if you think you may be developing a yeast infection.
