Levaquin and flagyl together

Common Questions and Answers about Levaquin and flagyl together


798555 tn?1292791151 But I never took them together. Flagyl---- whole nuther story!! First and 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.
Avatar n tn it was really cloudy, though). I was put on Levaquin for one week, and 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?
Avatar m tn I complained of tingling in the tip of my urethra one year ago, i went to the dr got tested for the usual stds and all were negative and i was referred to the urologist and 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.
Avatar f tn I had a bladder infection about a month ago and was taking Levaquin. So I wanted to put back some good stuff and 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.
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 n tn I finish the levaquin and the symtoms come back 12 days later full force. My girlfriend and I have sex and 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.
Avatar n tn I am just 59 and suddenly, about 2 weeks after ending my Cipro and Flagyl 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.
Avatar f tn I have had a total of 10 diverticulitis attacks since 2006, of which 7 have been in the last 2 years, and 3 in the last month an a half. I had 10 days of Flagyl and Levaquin beginning March 15, then 10 days beginning April 15, and I'm starting a 14 day dose today. My sed rate was 80 but WBC is normal. Scans in March and April showed mild diverticulitis. Is this normal to continue to have to take these anti biotics? It seems to me that they must not be working for my infection.
Avatar f tn 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 Flagyl for cyst-busting, and 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.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed 1 gram of zipromax and 7 tablets of levaquin 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.
Avatar f tn I was given Augmentin a 2nd time paired with Levaquin 500s, which seemed to work on the infection together, but I swelled up again, and my blood pressure which is normally 130 was 185. I was given Levaquin 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.
Avatar m tn Hi Doctor, Huge mistake: I had unprotected vaginal and 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.
Avatar f tn I take a blend called Magnesium CAO, which has citrate, aspartate and orotate, and I like it a lot, but malate worked well for me too. =========== About Flagyl, 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.
Avatar f tn He had never heard of IV Doxy. He uses only Rocephin and sometimes Levaquin. 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.
Avatar n tn and Family MD, I've been on many antibiotics such as Flagyl, Cipro and Levaquin. 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.
4939681 tn?1361302899 Even mainstream docs who've studied it report plenty of relapses, and there's no clear best treatment (although Rifampin and Levaquin 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.
Avatar n tn Cipro is a quinolone antibiotic and they are known for giving extreme anxiety. I should know Cipro and Levaquin 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.
2109342 tn?1380912575 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 Flagyl for Lyme, and 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.
433485 tn?1321816990 That's when I made the decison to have the surgery. They sent me home with a PICC line and I infused Levaquin and Flagyl 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.
Avatar n tn This past round they prescribed Levaquin and it's pretty good. The discharge is down and the pain and 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.
Avatar n tn 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.

Avatar n tn 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 and they are getting closer and closer together. 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.
Avatar n tn Besides, we are in this thing together and I hate to think anyone is experiencing the discomfort when urinating and 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?
Avatar n tn along with the involuntary twitching in my legs and numbness and tingling in my arms and hands I have had fatigue and 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...
Avatar f tn Her and I spend a lot of time together and 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".
Avatar n tn I was really sick, getting sicker and on Levaquin--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).
Avatar n tn 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 and gooey, and 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.
Avatar f tn I get these unexplained chills all the time, where im freezing cold with goose bumps all over my body. They hurt and 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.
Avatar n tn Now, 4 1/2 days later, it still hurts really bad and 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.
