What can I do for the 24/7 ringing in the ears? The difficulty getting up from a seated position or the pain in my back? These effects occurred after 750mg of Levaquin?
15 May 2012
Recently after only 3 doses of Levaquin I have horrible pain in almost every joint in my body. I've since had my doctor change to a different antibiotic. I was curious if I was experiencing an allergic reaction and after some searching on the Internet, discovered several sites with literally hundreds of people harmed from taking Levaquin. Everything from ruptured tendons, muscle pain, back pain, trouble walking, ears ringing and horrible headaches.
rashes, blisters and many others. All associated with taking Levaquin. The FDA knows all this and won't remove this poisonous drug. Worst of all, it seems these side effects don't go away. Some people have had problems for years. Good luck.
