This drug has been a miracle drug for me! I'm 16 and have had chronic sinusitis since I was 12. I recently suffered from a terrible sinus infection that was treated with augmentin and steroids. I have been augmentin at least 15 times in the past 2 years and it's getting to the point where I am becoming immune to it. This infection led into bronchitis and I was given a codeine syrup. M ...

I had a sinus/ear infection that was treated in the past with other long term antibiotics and eventually, surgery. I needed this antibiotic about 2 months after surgery. It has really made an improvement.The best advice I can give is if you need to take this medication, take high potency Omega-3, multivitamins, eat bananas (or another source of potassium)and drink lots of water too.

Comment:

Comment:
I have been on Levaquin several times for bouts of asthmatic bronchitis. Until this past round of antibiotics, I have never had a problem with Levaquin and have always obtained good results.

My ankles, toes, elbows and ... Show Full Comment
