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.
