I was prescribed avalox for a respiratory and throat thing? My pharmacist did not think I should take it because of drug interactions. He called my doctor, but the doctor told him the good will outweigh the bad so he filled the prescription. I also have meneniers and am subject to vertigo and suffer from anxiety I have had chest pain from anxiety and had a bout, of paracarditis. So these side effects terrified me. Day 2 and the weakness,dizzyness weak legs, no strength, feeling of being anxious. And spaced out, are so bad, I called the doctors office. I was told not to take it anymore and that the doctor will call another script jn tomorrow . It was a new doctor in our doctors office that prescribed the avalox. Anyone else been taken off it. ..I wish I had of known all the side effects before I took it.
