    I am allergic to penicillin and cephalosporins, so my antibiotic choices are fairly limited. Avelox worked VERY quickly and VERY well for me. I didn't even need oral steroids with it.

    I experienced severe diarrhea and muscle, joint, and tendon pain while using this medication. Next time, if it's a choice between this and the sinus infection, I'll just deal with the sinus infection.

    I was perscribed Avelox for ten days, took it four days and quit. I am finally starting to feel like I'm going to make it. I'm not sure my infection is completely cleared up but will take my chances compared to the side effects I experienced. Dizziness, feeling really sick, rapid heart rate, dry mouth, high anxiety, muscle tremors, and muscle and joint pain. I told the doctors office they ... Show Full Comment

    I was only able to take the medication for 2 days as the second day I broke out in a rash. It was a shame too because this medication really does work. The after I took to first does my throat felt much better. Hopefully they will come out with something like it without the reactions.
