Avelox what does it treat

Common Questions and Answers about Avelox what does it treat


Avatar n tn I recently developed an upper respitory infection and bronchitis and one of the medications was AVELOX. Within 3 days the severe pain in my shoulders was GONE. How is this possible? Was it a viral infection causing my pains and if so could it be a form of Lyme Disease?
Avatar m tn I posted earlier about NGU symptoms and what to take for it. After trying Doxy, Azithromycin, and Flagyl, the only antibiotic that finally worked was Avelox. The question now is what I should treat my partner with. I know from my experience that my NGU was passed sexually, and she needs to get treated before we can have sex again. The problem, is that she said she is allergic to Avelox.
6708370 tn?1471493810 to researchers Cirrhotic, naive treatment patient with fairly good lab numbers Serious, I would have stayed on the S/O for 24 weeks if that was on offer but I agree with a precious poster that sometimes it feels like a crap shoot - how long to treat, what combo, add Riba or not, what will insurance co agree to fund?
Avatar f tn I am going back to my dermatologist, but I am going to be taking the next step to see an infectious disease doctor to see what progress I have made, to find out where I stand at this point and most importantly what the future holds for me and my skin. Please let me know if you also have MRSA and can relate to my story.
Avatar n tn He said his wife has been sick for about a month and they to are having trouble finding out what it is. It must be a bug going around... I'll just have to keep checking in with the doctors on this and see what turns up.
Avatar f tn Many of us have had to deal with nasty infections during tx, but I have not seen many who were told to cut their interferon dose...especially when it is working so well. You need to have your doc treat the side effects as they present themselves (hemo levels, infections, white cell counts, mood changes, etc. etc.) and hopefully NOT have him take the wind out of your tx.
Avatar f tn I'm pretty committed to not taking anything, but sort of wondering what others might think. For what it is worth, my husband is out of town and he has the key to the lock of all of my meds except for the few norco I ended up not taking during tapering...so I don't have access to more than a few. I'm not going to take anything tonight at any rate because it will just screw up my sleep, but am curious to hear opinions. Thanks.
Avatar n tn It's even harder to find a doctor who knows how to treat it. Unfortunately it won't go away on its own, and you continue to lose your life as you become sicker and sicker, with more seemingly unrelated symptoms. Yes, antibiotics are strong drugs and using them for a long time can cause problems. But all drugs have risks--whether they work or not. Those of us who have it do tend to blame it for everything.We're frustrated, we're mocked, and often not taken seriously.
Avatar n tn Our modern life styles are very taxing, so I think rest, positivity and nutrition will be our best tools to heal ourselves. Remember, this is what the body does best, it just needs the right tools, and often it takes time. My biggest test to learn patience and positivity... hopefully we all can. Good luck to us all, and lots of love.
Avatar n tn What was the virus causing the meningitis? It is difficult to tell you what the rash is from, this is especially true since most rashes really need to be seen to diagnose them. It almost sounds like it is on the sun exposed areas of your body. If you are taking medications, your skin might to more sun sensitive and this may be the reason for the rash. But, I can't say for sure. I would see your physician and see what he/she says.
Avatar n tn After about 3-4 days of being together with a lady i got a throat problem, I did not have a sore throat, it was more like swelling around neck, neck glands were swollen and I had a really bad case of swollen uvula and some redness around it with some small white patches. I am typically non-drinker and do not smoke. But on holidays, I did have around 5-7 tonics each night going out.

Avatar m tn The only reason for this question is because I went to the urologist and had EVERYTHING looked at and was told that everything looked fine. Mycoplasma G.... How does Avelox compare to Zithromax as far as treatment, what testing could be done for this and how do you treat it in your clinic. My Urologist prescribed me 1 weeks worth at 400 mg per day since I had a bad reaction to cipro months back.
Avatar n tn I am currently on a therapeutic trial of Doxycycline x 1 month. Does anyone out there have experience with a similar episode? What was the diagnosis? What tests did you have? What treatment did you get? Please help.
Avatar m tn 2) Should I request different antibiotics during my follow up 3) do you think I have NGU, 4) I know Zithromax will treat Clyamdia, will the one dose treatment treat NGU? 5) Will the shot of Rocehin treat NGU 6) Sometimes when the massuse gives a HJ they try to stop the ejaculation process, by squeezing the shaft could that strain something and be part of the cause?
Avatar n tn My heart goes out to you! In my opinion Medical Providers are quick to say, Rebound Pain. Don't get me wrong, it does exist but not as often as claimed. Sometimes when a the problem can't be easily found Rebound Pain is blamed. There is no way for me to know if you are experiencing that or if there is another component to your pain. Scar tissue alone can cause gross amounts of pain. So the fact that you have "rare scar tissue problem" may be a huge contributing factor.
Avatar f tn Without the ability to examine you and obtain a detailed history, I can not tell you what the exact cause of your headaches is or how to treat it. However I will try to provide you with some useful information. Headache is a common symptom, however it may be concerning in some patients, specially when is a new headache with a different pattern, worsens or presents with focal neurologic problems.
Avatar m tn I have been prescribed Bactrim 60 days by my Urologist and was just wondering if it would also be good against NGU, not that I have it. Please tell me your understanding of whether it would cure it if I had a recurrent case. Back to the past post where I was unsure of what was going on due to a strictly oral exposure...I had a GC and Chl test and was negative. Symptoms are still there though and sometimes worst after a bunch of Bactrim.
Avatar m tn I cut my 4th toe with a powewasher (ouch) 3-4 days ago and i was given a 3 day course of avelox and antiobiotic creme to put on my cut toe. It is currently senstive to the touch, but not extremely painful. In addition, it does not feel warm. Is the redness surrounding the cut normal, or do i need to go back to the doctor?
Avatar m tn He does not think it will have any effect. I am ready to ask for Avelox, but if it is not MG, it is a waste with alot of potential side effects. Any input is appreciated.
Avatar n tn I had the z-pack, amoxcillin (2 times), and a stronger antibiotic the doctor gave me for brochitis, Avelox. The Avelox helped the most, but within a week after finishing it, my green phlegm and cough were back. I just got chest x-ray, don't have results yet. I also have numerous other health problems and I need a tooth pulled, but they won't do it until I get over this. It's terrible!
Avatar m tn Told me that the last rounds of atibiotics would lear it up. And if not to see a urologist. Which I am soon. What other antibiotics can be given?
Avatar f tn What you are describing does not sound like Avelox at all, but rather symptoms of Lyme disease. Sometimes, trauma such as injury, illness, or stress allows an underlying Lyme infection to come roaring to life. I know this was true for me. See if you can find a doc to authorize Western Blot tests at Igenex, an advanced testing lab.
Avatar f tn I know I have achilles tendinitis, but does this also sound like posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. If not, what else could it be. If it is that, what do you do for it. Do you need to wear a boot for this. Could I be hurting myself further by wearing tennis shoes and walking. I walk as little as possible. I have an appointment with an ortho doctor in two weeks. In the mean time, any information at all would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn The main thing is that you get it diagnoses. Most Drs. today have never even seen a case of whooping cough. Yours does sound like it and it is making a comeback. The problem is that it is highly contagious I understand so you would not want to be exposing people. By now you should have had an answer, I guess.
Avatar m tn The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc.
Avatar n tn Did they find Steph in your prostate again? 3) Nonbacterial prostatitis is hard to treat. Trust me, I still have it. 4) Were you ever infected with gonorrhea or chlamydia? 5) People have had prostatitis even thought they've never had sex. It's common.
Avatar m tn Having said all that, I believe it would be reasonable for you to be evaluated for HIV. It isn't necessarily that early treatment would make a difference (this is controversial), only that in today's world it's simply common sense to be sure. Given the exposure history, I expect the results to be negative. It would not be appropriate for me to recommend specific HIV test(s).
568812 tn?1379169394 Hi jary....i've had this problem for 13 months now, had all the tests at the hospital....cystocopy, scan, kidney function test, blood tests......everything normal but still have problem. Like you reoccurring uti with blood in urine.Keep returning to Gp but they keep saying well you don't have an infection. One doctor said, you can have the urethra tube replaced but wasn't to keen on the operation.
Avatar f tn I did 3 months of Rifampin, but I was sure it was contributing to my stomach pain. I switched to Avelox but had a big cramp in my achilles heel. Then I switched to Levaquin and have had no trouble with it. Stomach pain has declined. No anxiety since starting the Levaquin! (Warning: Levaquin can be bad for some people.) Lyme and coinfections do bizarre and distressing things to a body! I am glad to hear you have started treatment!
