What are the drug interactions between trazodone and levaquin?

I'm so glad you checked on it before you took it. Levaquin can cause tendon rupture too. Call your dr and get something else. Don't let him change to cipro either, its in the same family as levaquin.

Thank-you so much for your quick answer. I've decided not to take the levaquin after reading the patient info included with my prescription. I have a significant atrial fibrillation issue, and this med does not seem worth the risk. Whatever happened to good old penicillin, anyway?
