Avelox depression

Common Questions and Answers about Avelox depression


Avatar m tn The only thing I have so far is; I have sinusitus and was prescribed Avelox 400 mg per day and Ru-Tuss twice daily. My most recent blood work showed my Homocysteine, Nutr/Congen was at 45.8 with a UMOL/L range of 5.4-11.9. I am scheduled to test my cortisol, testosterone and such through saliva as well as the test for serritonin, dopamine, etc... Any suggestions, comments, help.....all would be greatly appreciated!!
Avatar m tn The 40 sum doctors I've seen, believe that I just have anxiety/depression, chronic pain disorder and there is nothing they can do to treat the tumor, as they believe it's not causing any of my symptoms. My symptoms are (for me being a 30 year old male); anxiety, depression, chronic debilitating fatigue, headaches like you would not believe, unable to wake up in the morning, but can't sleep at night...it's as if my cortisol levels are completely backwards.
Avatar n tn Has anyone taken Avelox 400mg. an antibotic. I have been taking now for 7 days and it has been hell for me. About an hour after I take it, I start to get anxiety and then I start to hyperventilate. My doctor thinks it not the Avelox because he has never had a patient complain about anxiety/hyperventilation. He said just take a Xanax to help you through and tough it out.. How many Xanax do you have to take to calm down.
Avatar f tn I was going through a life transition at the time having just graduated from college and seeking employment. I developed a depression and the Paxil as well as psychotherapy was very helpful. I am now well settled and feel that I have healed from the experience and wish to discontinue the Paxil. I am, however, terrified of the horror stories I've read about discontinuing Paxil. In your experience as a pharmacist, do most people have a difficult time discontinuing this SSRI?

242516 tn?1368227505 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.
Avatar f tn If your doctor hands you a prescription for a fluoroquinolone antibiotic (this could be not only Cipro or Levaquin but also Avelox or generics ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, and moxifloxacin, or others), be very certain that your condition warrants the risks that come along with taking these drugs. Fluoroquinolones have fluoride as a central part of the drug. Fluoride is a known neurotoxin, and drugs with an attached fluoride can penetrate into very sensitive tissues.
Avatar n tn I mentioned that I would be moving out of the country in about a month and she immediately called in a presciption for AVELOX for 3 weeks and said we should try to get this fixed before I leave and see if this works. I am trying to research sinus cysts but have not found much useful info on it. Any advice? She seemed to mention that I had an infection and that there was no infection which doesn't make any sense! Help!
Avatar n tn This slowly developed into flushed palms and fingers, anxiety attacks, irregular heartbeat, weight gain of 45 pounds over the course of 9 months, fatigue followed by at times bursts of incredible energy, worsening sinus and allergy problems, heel pain, gritty feeling in my one eye, mood swings, depression, trembling hands, and acid reflux. Strangely enough, alot of these symptoms started after I took an Avelox pill for a sinus infection and subsequently had a severe reaction to it.
Avatar n tn I was correct, doc said it was severe and gave me avelox to treat it, I had a terrible severe allergic reaction to that med. I was then afraid to take any antibiotic, so I waited about a week or so to start the azithromycin..I wanted all the side effects from the avelox to clear up..which they hadnt but I bit the bullet so to speak..Took a weeks worth, sinus' felt better..but then I started noticing I couldnt take very good deep breaths..sometimes I could and then I couldnt at times..
Avatar n tn She also complained of nausea and constipation along with all the symptoms before mentioned so he changed her antibiotic from Bactrim to Avelox 400mg, gave her Prilosec OTC, wrote her a prescription for compozine, and told her to take Miralax for constipation. She took the Miralax and a prilosec yesterday but decided to wait and start the Avelox today. Compozine was not taken due to listed side effects. She awoke at 12:30am shaky, weak, nauseated, and had dry heaves.
Avatar f tn I have had SEVERE joint pain from taking avelox. After 2 days of taking the antibiotic for a combined sinus and a mrsa staff infection, I had crippling joint & tendon pain in my knees, ankles, Achilles, shins and hips. After calling my dr. and speaking to my pharmacist, i stopped taking the medicine immediately. I made an appointment with the prescribing dr.
Avatar f tn I was treated horribly and we have no urgent cares around here. I even had one doc tell me I had anxiety and depression probs that was all that was wrong with me...when you have issues like that he said....you think everything is wrong with you...well i proved him wrong with the lymph nodes...I am getting no where with the medical community. I just want my healthy life back.
Avatar n tn , Phytoestrogen (GNC Supplement) 2 capsules daily *Initially treated with Omnicef, later Avelox. Both have been discontinued * Additional Medications added later: Pen-VK 500mg q.i.d. & Prednisone 40-mg q.d., which was tapered off in 10mg increments, over about 1 month. Allergies: Spironolactone caused loss of consciousness, loss of bladder control, monetarily stopped breathing and pupils immediately dilated.
Avatar m tn I have heard everything from Parkinson's, MS, seizures, thyroid, B12 deficiency, anxiety or depression. I have been on the many medicine's since 2003 for anxiety and depression, but none seem to work and most the time make me feel worse. Sleep Apnea test came back normal, although they said if woken up I would fall right back into the deepest sleep and would wake up almost every 3 minutes. My heart checked after high P02 levels were noted (normal).
1580318 tn?1492443745 Ellison also lists quinolones, the most commonly prescribed class of antibiotics, as dangerous as well, noting that antibiotics like Cipro (ciprofloxacin), Avelox (moxifloxacin HCL), and Floxin (ofloxacin) can cause severe and permanent disability. 4) Antipsychotics.
Avatar n tn My psychiatrist put me on Lamictal for depression around 6/3/2003 I believe. I started with 25 mgs morning and night and after 2 weeks 50 mgs morning and night. After 3 weeks total, I stopped taking it because I was not comfortable taking a medication that was off-label use for depression, there were alot of other antidepressants I haven't tried. Also I had already read about the Stevens Johnson syndrome and that scared me, even though it is rare.
Avatar n tn Did your Dr. prescribe you any of these meds Levaquin, Tequin, Cipro or Avelox (Antibiotic) ? Check out this website. http://www.drugvictims.org/ Anxiety & Stress can cause physical illness, but you need to look at prior to the 2 months and the past 2 months, are you under a lot of stress or do you have extra anxiety in your life currently (other than the anxiety over being ill...that can be overwhelming to say the least).
Avatar n tn Im am currently on claritin, singulair, avelox, dexamethasone, methylprednisone, and cymbalta (for anxiety/depression). My question is areyou perhaps on any of these same medications? I found it strange that we had headaches in the same area. your post sounded almost like something I would have said in fact except the fact that you are 27 adn Im 24. did you get a solution to your twitching however?
Avatar f tn Avelox. I am starting to think it's not the anitbiotics that are causing it. Could it possibly be stress? In addition to my health, things at work have been verrrry stressful. I know stress can do a number of things to your body such as muscle twitches and so forth... Any advice?
Avatar f tn Often, anxiety can have a root cause which is normally something traumatic that happened in our past which we have forgotten about. It comes back to force us to deal with it in the form of anxiety and/or depression. Yours may have been caused by all you've been dealing with. I would contact your doctor and explain to him what you did to us, he will understand and know what to do. I wish you all the best, and good luck with the new job! Take care.
Avatar m tn I was taking Avelox for a sinus infection. On day 12 I developed neuropathy in my left hand. The pain was so great that it woke me up from sleep. I stopped taking this medication. After stopping this medication I developed swelling in all my major joints. The neuropathy did dimish but the swelling continued, I had lab work done and it all proved to be normal. I was put on Prednisone as a taper and I could not take the high dose. I was put on a low dose which I took a few weeks.
Avatar n tn Is there anything I can take to help with the lack of energy and depression? I know it will be better after a while of being off the pills completely. Im sitting here at home no job (had to leave my last job due to me being sick all the time and my car getting totaled) Im 22 and my life is absolutely garbage, it seems like it will never get better :(.
200220 tn?1361955154 what supplements that I am taking would be harmful. I am taking 5htp for depression, gingko bil... for mind, fish oil for ?, and a multi vitamin. Thanks for you answer. I don't know what he split it for - he didn't say. He just said to split it. I will try it for the 3 weeks that he asked me to and then go back to the once a day. I only take 37.5 mg of synthroid. Can I ask you another question. How long did it take you to get back to feeling like you were normal.

I have had a cat scan, ivp, chest x ray, reflux test, urine and blood work,etc. and everything shows up normal. How can i have this much pain, when nothing shows up?
