Started Levaquin and Azor 5/40 on the same day, that night severe leg pain and calf cramps occured. After two days of Levaquin therapy my doctor told me to stop it since it may have caused the problem. That was 2 1/2 weeks ago and I still have calf pain. The Azor lowered my blood pressure to a normal level, but I'm concerned about the leg pain, my doctor said to give it time to heal, especially since I also take 2mg of Medrol daily for RA. I'm a slow healer, should I learn to be more patient or could this also be a side effect of Azor? I was previously prescribed Diovan and other blood pressure drugs without a problem.
