levaquin

But I never took them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flagyl</span>---- whole nuther story!! First <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ONLY case of Lyme rage that I ever had! Very scary and I stopped it immediately. But I probably would have stopped it soon anyway. Horrible emotional/brain/nervous system problems. But other can tolerate it fairly well. you won't know until you, yourself, try it. That's a fairly hefty amount of drugs at one point. I'm glad you'll have a doctor to oversee it.
it was really cloudy, though). I was put on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span> for one week, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> although it greatly reduced the pain, it did not eradicate it, which was why I suspected an STD and made an appointment with a gynecologist. I had stopped the levaquin for seven days prior to seeing the gynecologist for the pap smear and STD cultures. Do you suppose the levaquin could have resulted in a false-negative for either chlamydia or gonorrhea?
I complained of tingling in the tip of my urethra one year ago, i went to the dr got tested for the usual stds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> all were negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i was referred to the urologist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he stuck is finger up my but and said i had high PSA for prostitis, given cipro and most but not all symptoms went away.
I had a bladder infection about a month ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span>. So I wanted to put back some good stuff <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was told I could chew the pills. They don't taste too bad. Trying to stay away from dairy products at the moment. I checked with several doctor's offices and they all say that the doc doesn't do the tests at the same time because insurance companies pay them hardly anything when the procedures are combined.
This new box warning via FDA is something i've been aware of for some time in patients using ciprofloxaxin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span> (levofloxacin), Moxifloxacin (Avelox), ofloxacin (floxin), gatifloxacin (tequin), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 finish the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the symtoms come back 12 days later full force. My girlfriend <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I have sex <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I see on her a frothy white transient white discharge and a yellow tan discharge on my pelvis. Is it possible that the antibiotics are suppressing the prostatitis and the cause is tricomoniasis.The merck manual says prostatitis is a complication of trich. I am going for a cytology urine analysis. My doc says it might not come up.
I've now had rocephin, Zithromax, doxycycline, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span>. They all seemed to help, but that might have been a coincidence since I have had no sexual contact and barely even touched myself during these times I was on the various drugs. I still have very minor dysuria after being off all medication for a week or more. I have a prescription for flagyl in case it is trichomoniasis, but haven't been tested for it. The only tests I have had were for gonnorrea and chlamydia.
I am just 59 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> suddenly, about 2 weeks after ending my Cipro <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flagyl</span> courses (fun!) developed exactly the symptoms everyone is describing. I had an infected puncture wound that wasn't healing and had to go on both drugs. I did not know of the Cipro/collagen/elastin connection! Regarding hair loss over the past 5 years or so I had developed a bald patch at the hairline with increasing thinning all the way around the face.
I haven't taken it, but I think it's used as a 'cyst buster', to break through the cysts the Lyme bacteria encase themselves in to hide from the immune system and from medication. My doc used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flagyl</span> for cyst-busting, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I didn't have any problems with it ... if you have problems with Tindamax, you might ask about flagyl. It's always nervous-making when starting meds. Be brave! Go for it. you can do it.
I was given Augmentin a 2nd time paired with levaquin 500s, which seemed to work on the infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span>, but I swelled up again, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my blood pressure which is normally 130 was 185. I was given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span> 750s paired with flagyl 500s 3x daily, which seemed to work on the infection but the levaquin made me panicky and sleepless at night. I had to go off levaquin because I literally could not sleep. Now I'm on Augmentin XR (1000/62.
I was prescribed 1 gram of zipromax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 7 tablets of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span> taken daily. The night I was treated on was monday night. That saturday morning (which is 4-5 days after treatment) I had unprotected sex with a new uninfected partner. I had sex with the same partner that upcoming monday and then now last friday and saturday. My symptoms seemed to go away and by last tuesday they seemed basically all gone.
Hi Doctor, Huge mistake: I had unprotected vaginal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> mutual oral sex outside of my marriage at a sales conference. Woman is 39. Timeline: >January 25 – Had vaginal unprotected, oral sex, technically twice in a period of two hours. >January 28 – Noticed mild burning when urinating, lasted 2 or 3 days. Still don’t know if my mind manifested this or if it was real. >January 30 (5.5 days later) – A friend dr (unrelated medical field) gave me 1.
I take a blend called Magnesium CAO, which has citrate, aspartate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> orotate, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I like it a lot, but malate worked well for me too. =========== About <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flagyl</span>, I took it for an extended period of time as part of my Lyme treatment, and I had no problems at all ... and I am very sensitive to many many foods and meds. Everybody's different.
He had never heard of IV Doxy. He uses only Rocephin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sometimes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span>. His estimated IV treatment time was only 6 weeks, at which point he'd switch me to either IV levaquin or oral Doxy. The ILADS protocol indicates that a person in my situation (long-term steroid use, late disseminated disease, GI intolerance) should receive a minimum of several months of IV treatment, preferably combination therapy including flagyl.
and Family MD, I've been on many antibiotics such as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flagyl</span>, Cipro <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span>. I am really concerned now about being on antibiotics, mainly because my mother almost died with a case of C-diff. I'd just like to find some natural cures instead of the antibiotics. How do I know if it's diverticulitis? What's the risk of me getting Diverticulitis again? I have so much diahrrhea, it's hard to know whether I'm "normal" or not. Normal's pretty much out the window.
Even mainstream docs who've studied it report plenty of relapses, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> there's no clear best treatment (although Rifampin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span> are most effective). you can't always treat everything at once due to drug interactions and patient's drug tolerance. Sometimes docs focus on the biggest problem(s) and knock that down first. I had to stop taking Malarone when it became clear Bart was flaring back up noticeably.
Good to hear you've been doing better -- I've no words of wisdom on your situation, but all this will be good data when you see an LLMD. I was also on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flagyl</span> for Lyme, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it was good stuff, along with another med I can't at the moment recall. I think the flagyl was the 'cyst buster' so the other antibiotic could reach the Lyme.
That's when I made the decison to have the surgery. They sent me home with a PICC line <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I infused <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flagyl</span> daily . 1 X for Lev. and 3 X for the flagyl. Then, on Jan. 24 I went in for the surgery. The PICC wasn't so bad as I was able to be mobile. The home health nurse and company would send out these Balls, containing meds and I would stick one in a Fanny Pack and connect when it was time. They empty on their own.
Cipro is a quinolone antibiotic and they are known for giving extreme anxiety. I should know Cipro <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span> messed me up for a long time. Look them up on line, you will see. I also got extreme joint and muscle pain from them. Something that I never had until I first took these antibiotics. They are now under adverse reactions in my med chart an are no longer given to me.
Hey guys, I'm in the same boat as you. I'm in my late 20s and suffer from prostatitis. you can search for my story on the threads if you'd like. Although this is not a serious disease, the unfortunate part about is that doctors in the U.S. do not know how to treat it. Eventually, when all else fails (anitibiotics), they just tell us we have to live with it.
This past round they prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it's pretty good. The discharge is down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> inflamation are definately clearing up. I'm still trying to find out if this is related to an abundance of sexual activity or if another STD makes it become more active. thanks.
[Part 2] Here are all your IND <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> positive bands mushed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span>, with comments as to meaning, acc. to the website mentioned above.
along with the involuntary twitching in my legs and numbness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tingling in my arms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> hands I have had fatigue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> migraines. My doc put me on a heart medication for my migraines and they have subsided for the most part but now the twitching and arm/hand probs have arisen. you are further than I on getting tests done but do you have any heart probs or migraines? Sorry I cannot be of greater help to you but I had to write you becuase we have very similar symptoms going on...
My Obgyn took me off of birth control pills in August because she thought that was what was causing this, but I still have the episodes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they are getting closer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> closer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span>. I had an MRA and MRI in September that both came back normal. My neurologist has put me on neurontin three times a day, but that isn't helping either. I can not funtion my normal like and every time it goes away I hope it's for good, but then it comes back and I can not figure out why.
Besides, we are in this thing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I hate to think anyone is experiencing the discomfort when urinating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> just walking in general. I can relate, though, and hopefully soon this will be over. I suspect 5-7 more days (since my skin has broke and the circle that reveals the cracked skin is white...maybe because I have been using salt treatment) BY THE WAY I DO NOT recommend that if you are pain intolerant!!! I hurts like the ;'.[],;l';',.!@#$#$@$ Catch my drift?
I was really sick, getting sicker <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span>--on 4-6 wks, off 4-6 wks. I noticed that for me, the orange tongue correlated with how sick I felt (mind you I do/did have other complicating factors not necessarily relevant to the orange tongue theory so I'll spare you). Long story short- I found a doctor who finally treated me for Lymes with Doxycycline and I low and behold, I got better and consequently--no more orange tongue (it's been a year since treatment).
Her and I spend a lot of time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>together</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> wish we could combine our troubles. That way we pretty much would have a normal bathroom life. I laughed when I read the phases you went through because I am in the second phase. It started about a week ago and thank goodness the temperature is almost high enough to be able to open the windows again. I have a very understanding husband who says "just let it rip".
I get the feeling that they are like little paper cuts all inside, and they are excruciating when you tinkle. I have tried a steroidal cream, perscribed by my gyne, but it is messy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> gooey, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I really don't like using it, because it doesn't really do much. Do you notice they get worse before or after your period? I know what you mean about feeling like, "what the hell is this?" I am in a monogomous relationship for 6 years, with the same partner, who is now my husband.
Now, 4 1/2 days later, it still hurts really bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> is looking swollen. I also now have developed sneezing, congestion, watery eyes, and the full pressure feeling that is in my nose feels like it is spreading through my sinuses. My nose hurts so bad though! I don't understand the pain and swelling.
I get these unexplained chills all the time, where im freezing cold with goose bumps all over my body. They hurt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I can barely walk they are so bad sometimes. I check my temp when I get these episodes and its perfectly normal. I do not have a infection or am not sick. Im not even in a cold environment. Everyone around me is not cold. Its the weirdest thing, and I cant find a answer for it. Its like my body is messed up and sending these chills for no reason. Please help.
