My son is a runner and took levaquin for sinus infection. Complaining about muscles and body aches seems depressed, tired, aches, legs and muscles hurt. Can this be from the drug? and if so how long does this last?? He took the drug in Jan.
Levaquin, just like Avelox and 2 "very" strong antibiotics. I've had to take them now for over a year due to my constant sinus infections. Unfortunately the side effects of these 2 are not good. The first time I took Levaquin, the heels of both my feet got so sore I literally could only take baby steps. It took 3 weeks for it to go away and I was in constant pain. From what you're saying about your son, those are side effects of that drug unfortunately.
It will go away soon in my opinion.. Good luck..
