Macrolides example Erythromycin is safe for you.
The drug family that cipro and Levaquin are in are risky antibiotics. They should only be used in medical emergencies and when other antibiotics are not working.
I have similar allergies and have to take Levaquin. It is considered a big gun drug and can cause achilles and hand tendon rupture in some patients if heavy duty exercise is performed on it and for about 5-7 days post treatment but it really works well. It tends to cause fatigue and can cause gastrointestinal distress in some patients. These are not reasons to avoid taking it just things to discuss with your physician if concerned. Be well.
the quinolones antibiotic like ciprofloxacin i think is the best antibiotic and the safest for you to take...
Erythromycin, azithromycin, clarithromycin...
Your doctor will be able to choose the safest and most effective antibiotic for your symptoms and allergies.
Hello, & welcome yo the site. I too am allergic to the same anti bioitics you listed.. For some odd reason UI can take ampicillin without getting hives or a rash, but that does not mean you could. You would have to try it. Levaquin, or doxycycline are two more you should be able to take for this condition...
