had an eus (scope into stomach then into pancrease to withdraw fluid from dime size cyst). doctor prescribed levofloxacin 500 mg 1 per day for 5 days. I am 62 and read the side effects and very afraid.
Sometimes you have to take it, because its the only thing that will get rid of the infection. Other times you could call and explain you'd prefer not to take that if you don't have to and he'd change you. Remember that those side effects have to be listed even if only 1 person reported them. That does not mean you will get them. I would call and talk to the doc or his nurse and explain your fears about taking it and see what he says.
