I had diverticulitis and my doctor gave me levaquin and flagyl. I've read some scary stories about levaquin, but I was so sick, I just took it and didn't think twice about it. Has anyone had an adverse delayed reaction to it?

Cholestyramine - Is it okay to take a stool softener every day or so to counter the constipation? I?
... had a bout of diverticulitis from pain pill also. After antibiotic and liquid diet I am still having constipation. Thanks
