Common Questions and Answers about Can you cut levaquin in half


Avatar n tn Hey cannot cut the dose in half....i would call your doctor and see if he/she can change your meds or if it's ok to stop..Levaquin can be given in 250, 500 & 750 mg doses...I was on Levaquin earlier this year for uti and had horrible side effects, so i just stopped taking the meds...I had horrible heart pounding, swollen knees and it felt as if someone had beaten the crap out of me with a baseball bat...
Avatar m tn You can get STD's if you come into contact with any body fluid that has the disease in it. For example if someone has aids, and you get some of their body fluids on your hands, and your hand had a paper cut, a prick, a cut, a lose scab, a little scratch from a kitten, you could now be infected. It is rare that STDs are transmitted from masturbation alone but it is possibly. If you have their fluids on your hands and pick your eye, nose, etc, it could also enter you that way as well.
Avatar n tn Is there anything that can be done to get this out of my chest. i stand in hot showers and cough as much as I can to get this out to no avail. I do not know what else to do. I had originally been put on antibiotics that ended up in a serious of four different kinds back to back with the last being levaquin and a pill steriod for 4 days which is theonly thing that seemed to loosen anything up, but I'm still getting it stuck. Please advise.
Avatar f tn I just posted the SAME issues, jaw discomfort, throat lump, ear pressure...I feel like I need to pop my ears constantly. My jaw tingles a when you smell pickles or other food that makes you glick! :-) I also have a strange dull pain that radiates in my neck, up my jaw line and up to the ear canal along with a lump in my throat. Like a lingering bruise rather than sharp pain.

Avatar n tn Danny, Have you, in the past year, been treated with a fluoroquinolone-based antibiotic (levaquin, tequin, cipro, floxin, etc)? If so, you may be suffering from an adverse reaction to that drug. These reactions can come on long after you are treated, and cause long-lasting pain and other symptoms. Very often those hurt think they have MS, or ALS, or fibromyalgia, or a host of other maladies. If you are suffering these weird symptoms, I suggest you check out the following sites: www.
Avatar n tn A needle biopsy can miss the tumor if it is small or in a place not easy to sample. If I were you I would a least ask for another biopsy. Good Luck!
Avatar f tn Your resistance data from the boc trial might have gone a long way to explain what was happening during the time that you 'stalled' in the boc trial. In the absence of that data I don't think this question can be answered. I think that you have just got to assume that you did develop some resistant mutations and hope that a Shock and Awe regime with incivek and lashings of ifn can overcome them this time. "I just don't know what to do.

Avatar n tn I have done a lot of research and talked with many specialists, there is not too much that antibiotics can do, unless you are pregnant, then you want to protect the baby. The colonization goes through an ebb and flow. Some tests will show it,but at another time the GSB is not as abundant. The amount depends on a lot of factors- stress, other STD's, or even being sick. Your immune system and it's healthiness really drives the production of GSB.
Avatar n tn I'll await your answers. I'm sure others wil chime in. Paresthesias are a huge topic here. You can tell just by the number of questions involving them in the last two days.
Avatar n tn As an initial trial, have some dry eyes drops beside your bed, which you can just reach out for, in the morning. Without fully opening your eyes squeeze in a drop in the affected eye; in my case I find that this usually - instantly - releases the eyelid - if the eyelid can be released so easily and quickly after the drops, this says to me that 'dry eye'/blepharitis is likely to be the cause.
Avatar m tn The worst thing is I didn't even know I had anxiety so it was hard to listen to some doctor tell me this. I hope you can get something to help you and that you feel better soon!
Avatar n tn One thing you can do to help out, with any particle like that of smoke is, you can put in a whole house filter. The best in the business for price and efficiency is the Polarized Media Filters made by Electrobreeze. I would suggest these because I've had a friend that had problems with stuff that she was breathing in, and now doesn't have that problem any more. To get some more information on these I'd visit
Avatar n tn He explained that the bile sludges and can make you sick and the essentials make the bile watery so it does not cause infection in the colon.
Avatar n tn com's forums, if someone can advise you about docs in your area. Everyone is into BHRT over there it seems. However, I really think that you need a referral to a specialist from your GP or family doc. It is not right that you are having to go through this, while trying to be a mom. I have all the respect in the world for you as it must be very difficult.
Avatar f tn Pseudomonas can also cause a nasty situation, along with infection from a tooth that hasn't had that root canal yet because you're too broke to put $1200 in your mouth. In that case, you can get a bacteria that is fungal like in nature, throwing the apple cart upside down. That one is called actinomyces israelii--little crystals-like sparkles thingies. Other than the last disease, research showed a great deal of success for recovery with a good quality colloidal silver, believe it or not.
Avatar m tn I've read many posts in other forums but I can best relate to the problems of you all in here. I know what it's like having these problems affect your social and work life and pretty much your life in general. I know how it feels to leave multiple doctors offices with the only information they could give you being "anxiety." I dropped out of college, stopped hanging out with friends and pretty much gave up on life this past year. I'm a 19 year old male.
Avatar n tn For example, I walk on the beach regularly, but the soreness and reduced muscle function cut my walks in half. The infection was thought to be (but not confirmed as ) Endolimax nana, a parasitic infection treated with Metronidazole. Within several days of treatment, my gastric symptoms went away and my legs felt much better.
Avatar f tn I'm also a diabetic and have been trying to keep that in check as well. Is there anything else that I can do to relieve the pain and discomfort?

Avatar f tn My lungs had collapsed and I had pneumonia and 4 clots the size of half dollars in my lungs. Now this new dr says at my age (65), it may be coming from cancer. She is wanting to run a colonoscopy, and 4 other tests. I've already had 5 tests and all have come out showing there is no problem. Every dr, though, has said the same will take 8 months before the clots disappear and I feel better or have my usual energy.
Avatar m tn If you want all the specifics, then your neurologist can give you a more detailed or thorough explanation than what I know. However, if memory serves me correctly, that is the purpose of getting an EMG done. The neurologist also performed an EEG (everything was done at the office, except the MRI, in case you are worried about how much all this will cost you...). The EEG measures electrical activity of the brain, both at rest and under stimulation.
Avatar m tn The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something. It’s a tiny risk, greater if you are older, overweight, obese, or have reduced blood flow in your neck arteries, but it’s a risk you must assume if you want get rid of an otherwise untreatable sinus infection.
