Struggling through a respiratory sickness for 12 days, I visited my Dr. to make sure I did not have strep, pneumonia, or something else. Received a prescrip. for Levofloxacin 500mg one/day for 10 days. After two nights of bad sleeping, I stopped the drug. The next day I felt like I had been in a car accident, and the day after that I am still moving at the pace of a turtle--in much aching disco ... Show Full Comment

I took levofloxacin 500 for 10 days. I think it did clear up my illness, however, approx 2 wks later, I began to have muscle, tendon pains in my legs with swelling around both knees. The pain comes and goes and moves from one area to another. Sometimes both legs at the same time. This has been going on now for 2 months. Wish I have never taken the drug.

After taking this medication for several days, I started noticing a lot of pain in my joints, especially my shoulders & arms. I was lethargic & hurt all over. I couldn't eat because I felt nauseous & it felt as if I couldn't swallow anything. I stopped taking the medication after 6 days and 5 days later I am still in severe pain with my left shoulder and arm. This medication ... Show Full Comment
