Common Questions and Answers about Avelox and uti

avelox

We discussed her health prior to the event and she said she was disease free. I trusted her...Stupid I know! On May 22nd my girlfriend gave me oral and the next day came down with Strep. On May 26th I noticed it burned slightly when I urinated. I did not think anything of it until this week. I am noticing a clear discharge from my penis. It is not yellow or thick and does not smell bad. It still stings when I pee but the urine is not cloudy.
I am not a doctor, but both treat pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, ear infections and UTI and some skin infections. But Augmentin is a penicillin type of drug and if you are allergic to penicillin you can't take it. While the side effects of Avelox (moxifloxacin) can include tendonitis and tendon rupture among other things. It also depends on the bacteria you are treating for. One bacteria may be resistant to one of the antibiotics and not the other.
If the urinalysis and urine microscopy shows more than 5 white blood cells per high powered field (WBC/hpf), that's something that may benefit from antibiotics for a urinary tract infection. A UTI often causes burning sensation along the penis and at the opening (meatus), as well as frequent urination and sometimes bladder discomfort. It doesn't explain the other symptoms. What did the doctor say today?
Would amoxicilian treat gonn, chylm. and a UTI? Do you have any idea what might be happening to me? Also, can I be comfortable with my Oraquick Rapid HIV test results that were obtained 33 days after my brief exposure?
took a urine sample and it came back negative for bacteria; culture was also negative. This morning, I peed on the home UTI stick and it was positive (Positive leukocytes and negative nitrites). Doctor thinks I am bacteria free and it will pass. Doctor told me to stop peeing on the stick and the postive result from the stick it is not as reliable as the lab test. My sex partner states that she exhibits no signs of discomfort. I suggested that she see her Gyne and check.
I was having lower pelvic pain I seen 3 diff drs 1 said it was a UTI and prescribed Avelox 400 mg 1 said same thing but prescribed cypro and the last dr informs me that I have trick and gives me the dose of Flagyl 2000mg However when I got home about an hour later i vomited.....
Antibiotics, used for continuous period of time, will damage you natural flora, causing superinfections (vaginosis in women and UTI in both men and women -- and it this is the case -- cranberry pills 2 pills 2times a day or 250 mg neostatin will prevent the UTI).
It took me 3months to get of pain killers and antibiotics and to feel normal again. But after that I have only had two UTI in a year which I think is cause of the surgery. Also I take cranberry tablets every day the higher does the better and drink at least 2.5 L of water a day. But to get to the point, I have only had 3 yeast infections but they start at my clitoris and itch and burn like crazy and have found the little white stuff around the hood?
The warning applies to drugs of the fluoroquinolone class, including Cipro, Cipro XR, Proquin XR, Levaquin, Floxin, Noroxin, Avelox, Factive, and marketed generics." http://www.webmd.com/osteoarthritis/news/20080708/fda-warning-cipro-may-rupture-tendons ******************** "Apparently there has been a change to the Black Box Warning for Floroquinolones.

the other doctor put me on Avelox and Flagyl. Will this kill gonor. and chlyma. if that is what it is?
This pain would intensify which would cause me to wince in pain and then release and then repeat all over again every 5-10 seconds for about a minute. This pain did not radiate anywhere but only within a specific point. Then this same stabbing sensation occurred half way up to the first knuckle of my right middle finger about 30 minutes later. Then immediately following this finger pain I felt pain in my right foot at the joint of my middle toe.
This new box warning via FDA is something i've been aware of for some time in patients using ciprofloxaxin, levaquin (levofloxacin), Moxifloxacin (Avelox), ofloxacin (floxin), gatifloxacin (tequin), and i'm glad it'll be highlighted on labeling, showing it's increasing incidence: risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture is further increased in those over age 60, in kidney, heart, and lung transplant recipients, and with use of concomitant steroid therapy.
I informed both the ER resident and the Doc of my use of avelox prior to the testing and discussed the potential for false negatives with them at that time. Both believed it was more likely they could skew and UTI test than a STD test. The only other thought that has entered my mind as to what could have caused the irritation and urgency was dehydration and a possible overdose of Allegra D. I accidentally took an additional Allegra-D 24 hour the day this all began.
This situation is made more difficult by the fact that I'm living in Korea; But, I should say, my doctor speaks good English and has been very kind and patient. I show no physical symptoms - no rashes, bruising, bumps or tears. But the intensity and consistency of the irritation is causing me worry and a lot of emotional and mental pain. I have read some cases of men in the same boat, all at a loss, all suffering. I cannot focus. It's all rather unfortunate and entirely depressing.
Ughhh dont get me started on Levoquin or Avelox and Cipro. Dreadful Antibiotics and they should be taken off the market.. I only took one Avelox and experienced some alarming side effects.levoquin was a littel easier but after 5 days i could hardly get out of bed because i hurt so much and the nightmares where just alarming.Ok nothing to do with Menopause i know..sorry..I,m also going through Meno and my skin has gotten very dry and kinda saggy... Miserable isnt it.
It was New years day and I was horribly sick. I got ahold of my Dr. and he aske a lot of questions and we together thought that the cipro most likely covered the infection and then went nuts when I was off it. He then put me on a Avelox for 10 days. During the Avelox course of treatment, I was coughing very hard over the sink in the bathroom and from my right nostril a huge liver looking clot came flying out and splashed all over the place my shirt was covered.
look to see if they put you on Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox or Tequin. And if you had a UTI they probably did. let me know what you find out and if so I have a suggested web page for you to visit. (I had a Levaquin reaction that had a host of neuro side effects: for awhile I was convinced I had MS.
I have taken Phenegrgan w/ codeine, Guaifen (Duratuss),Singulair, Advair, Zithromax, Septra (had UTI at the time),Methylpred (MEDROL), Avelox, Hydrocodone, Prednisone, VI-Q-Tuss Syrup,Sulfamethoxazole, and Flonase - none of which have helped. I am now taking: Hydrocodone (which use to suppress the cough, but is no longer working...even at an increased dose), Astelin, Guaifenex G, Prednisone (again), and Protonix (even though GERD test are negative).
No Help, after taking amox for 12 days I went back 2days after being off of Amox and was tested for everything except trich I also took additional HSV typ 1 and 2 test at 16 weeks negative except type one. Now my only concern is trich, since there is no accurate way to test for it in men and since the cure rate for treating it in men is not the best. It has now been six months and I notice as the day goes the pain gets worse, I have no pain during the night or in the morning when I wake up.
I will make a follow up with my doctor and share your input. At the moment I am on Avelox 400mg Perhaps he will change treatment and hopefully it can be taken care of with medication. The fever is gone, my normal eating habits are on track except pop. It still is not tasting good.. no loss it will help my weight etc... I do have diverticulits that flares up from time to time. Is there any medication you suggest that I could pass along to him?
I mean, i havent gone through labor and birth yet but im sure id rather go through that pain rather than have a constant uti problem....at least labor leads to something good! atm my urethra is playing up again...doesnt help that i feel sick too!
macrobid and avelox...these are the ones she used that gave her urtica or hives and she had to get on prednisone etc. When she went to get bactrum as prescribed by a gynecologist, the pharmacist told her she was allergic to sulfa family drugs so not to take it. When she takes clindomycin or other antibiotics, even with taking some acidopholis, for tooth issues, she gets diarrhea after taking about the 3rd pill. This is not an allergy...we know...it is just a side effect of that drug.
Burning in urethra, clear discharge from penis, lower back and abdomen pain intermittently, my scrotum feels really warm and sweaty, my rectum every now and again will feel wet and a sweaty even when I'm standing around not doing anything, sometimes my scrotum feels like its being lightly pinched. These symptoms aren't always present at the same time. Nor do I always have these symptoms.
On Monday I peed on the home UTI test stick (Positive leukocytes and negative nitrites). Dr. thinks I am bacteria free and it will pass. Dr. told me home test is not as reliable as the lab test. My sex partner has no signs of discomfort. I am worried about Mycoplasma Genitalium or Ureaplasma. I am in the Chicago area and am not aware of a physician or lab in the Chicago area that will screen/test for MG or UU. Lab Corp advertises a test, but it does not appear to be a PCR test.
What antibiotics did you take for your UTI and were any of them quinolones, eg Cipro, Levaquin, or Avelox? Were there any others?
Constant nausea, upper left flank pain (front and back wrapping around), vertical pain up and down my front and back near left center (uretur?) and pain on my left side of pelvic region which is probably from the prostate which is sometimes in the back. Pain on my left side affects my sleep, and i'm very tired 24/7 and get the chills easy. I've noticed if I drink soda it irritates the prostate (which I avoid now).
Hello Doctors. I wanted to reply as a follow-up. Basically right after the last post I stopped taking Avelox, waited 3 weeks and got NAAT PCR tested for Gon, Chlam, Trich, Mycoplasmases, Ureas, Candidas, and even blood work for Hep A, B, C. everything Negative. I had also taken my wife to the dr. but he didn't want to test her because she didn't have symptoms.
Last August I went to Europe, about a month later I came back feeling tired, short of breath, stomach cramps, nausia, chills and anxiety with lower abdominal aches below belly button) found white blood cells in the urine (uti?
I have recently discontinued the levaquin. My UTI symptoms are gone and I am hesitant to ever take this again. I did a little research and you are right, it does cause anxiety. I appreciate you writing me back and thanks for the advice. It has been a learning experience. I just moved to San Antonio and I don't have a good doctor yet. I am trying to find one now.
