Common Questions and Answers about Levaquin and kidneys


Avatar m tn Hurts to walk, and cannot move my arms above my head. Stopped taking Levaquin on Monday and is now Wednesay and pain is still unbelievable. Does anyone know how long the pain will last and is there any way to get the pain to go away sooner? My doctor said I should feel better in a couple of days.
168348 tn?1379360675 Just wondering bcz I am on the Levaquin 500mgs 1X day for 7 days for a pretty bad urinary tract infection / small stone that passed (kidney) and along with normal side effects like gas, and feeling some tired/dizzy which I usually get from Levaquin I keep getting chills and more tired than normal but it comes and goes and yet my clinical symptoms for the UTI/stone passing are cleared up I do not think the chills are related to the medical problem and really wondering if after 5 days my TSH is
2109342 tn?1380912575 Yes my LLMD switched me to minocycline based on my friend who sees Schaller, lol. She is doing well with Bart's and Babs and he never uses levaquin because of the tendinitis. She even said he is strange but she is use to him after all these years. I sure hope your kidney improves. It is a balancing act.
Avatar f tn I went back to my gyn yesterday due to what I felt was a bladder infection as I have had one before and recognized this one immediately. My bladder area is tender and stings. Burning upon urination, etc. She then tapped my back to check for tenderness where the kidneys are. I felt nothing, but do periodically have this weird catch in my left side. I have had this about 4 other times and do not associate it with kidneys.
Avatar m tn Levofloxacin (trade names Levaquin (US), Tavanic (EU), and others) is a broad-spectrum antibiotic of the fluoroquinolone drug class. Levaquin is used to treat bacterial infections of the skin, sinuses, kidneys, bladder, or prostate. Levaquin is also used to treat bacterial infections that cause bronchitis or pneumonia. Hope this is helpful. Sorry I'm tardy with my response.
Avatar n tn I called my doctor the next day and had a blood and urine test, but no infection showed up so I was put on Levaquin anyway for a month. The problem seemed to go away after about a day or two. I then had it relapse here about last october exact same thing as far as I can tell very frequent urination all night so again I went into my family doctor and I think they put me on a week supply of Cipro or Levaquin I can not remember.
Avatar n tn The discomfort I was feeling was painful ejaculation towards the end of ejaculating, sore abdomen(as if being punched in the abs), Sore testicles, Lower back pain in the area of the kidneys, and a general discomfort in the whole genital and groin area. He then went in with a scope through my urethra and found that my veru montanum was inflammed and he split it open and let it drain, thus leaving a cathedar in me for two days after the procedure.
Avatar f tn My symptoms did not improve so I began on Levaquin for 10 days. Since then I have had an ultrasound of my kidneys, ovaries, and bladder, and everything was normal. My labwork was also normal. My symptoms did not improve and I began on Vesicare, which did not help, and now I am on Detrol LA. This does not seem to be helping either. I am continuing to urinate 20-30 times a day. Sitting also makes it worse. Please help. I cannot continue to live like this.
Avatar n tn If your symptoms get worse when you take an antibiotic, specially some that are quite toxic...Why can't it be a sign of an adverse reaction instead of a "herx" reaction?
Avatar n tn I was taking the Sporanox and the Levaquin at the same time for about 3 days then finished my Levaquin perscription.. I have stopped taking all medicines for about 3 days, but I still have the above symptoms.. I am seeing a urologist and he examined my urine and said it appeared normal (same day) he has ordered an ultrasound of my kidneys to eliminate the poss of kidney stones. (I do that tomorrow) I have taken Levaquin in the past and had never had any issues with it..
Avatar n tn I'm replenishing these now by doing a colon cleanse and using probiotics. And never will I take antibiotics again.
Avatar f tn I had a really bad reaction to cipro and levaquin. I did not get the reaction until a lot of it built up in my bloodstream. They made me feel awful. I never realized how bad an antibiotic could make someone feel. I also take a little sliver of amitriptliline for sleep but just started it though. It makes me really dry. Do you take it to sleep? I for the most part take remeron for sleep. I also have mild asthma which does not help me any w/ anxiety. I noticed you also take inhalers.
Avatar n tn i have this warm burning feeling in my scrotum and anus off and on and the tip of my penis feels like it someone is pinching it also from day to day the area between the scrotum and the anus feels really tight almost like a knot.
Avatar n tn I have been off and on flagyl, levaquin, bactrim, and cipro for the last 14 weeks and am having bowel resection surgery for diverticulitis tomorrow. The Keffir really helped me - tastes kind of weird but it works . You can also eat any kind of yogourt that contains live culture - DanActive or Activia.
Avatar n tn The meds did nothing in terms of making my swallowing better. What they did do was shut down my kidneys and my liver. I was readmitted to the hospital this time though my family was called and told to come and say their good-bye's to me. I was placed in intensive care. The second day after I should have been dead according to the test, my kidney's began to function, by liver functions also return. I was released from intensive care and back to mainstream hospital.
Avatar n tn Ultrasound of bladder, pelvis and kidneys - that will look at ovaries, too. Cystoscopy - basically an endoscopy of the bladder to check to be sure everything is ok The way I understand it, the vaginal estrogen is that it is just for that area - it is not hormone replacement therapy (HRT) which is prescribed for hot flashes and mood swings. It just treats the vaginal atrophy that may accompany menopause. My dr.
Avatar m tn Can either of these infect your kidneys? I had a condom break and I have some of the symptoms of both chlamydia and gonnorhea but the doctors cant figure out whats wrong with me. They have tested for stds and cultured my urine. All negative. I've also taken smx/tmp, cipro, and levaquin. The cipro seemed to work but didnt completely so they gave me a thirty day and it seemed to work at first but about a week and a half in, the symptoms came back, like whatevers in me became immuned.
503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
Avatar n tn Things started to get worse in 10 mins, and suddenly, my heart was racing, my hands and feet were tingling and numb and I was sweating and flushing. (no chest pain, shortness of breath). Went back home to rest. Major complaint the next couple days were a strong feeling of pulsations INSIDE my head, often in my neck, face, ears and jaw. No pain or headache.
Avatar n tn Xanax (ok, fine) LEVAQUIN (WTF???) Levavaquin is prescribed for "is used to treat bacterial infections of the skin, sinuses, kidneys, bladder, or prostate. It is also used to treat bacterial infections that cause bronchitis or pneumonia, and to treat people who have been exposed to anthrax." "Levofloxacin is associated with a number of serious and life-threatening adverse reactions as well as spontaneous tendon ruptures and irreversible peripheral neuropathy.
Avatar n tn i had the same problem i always had low b/p and all of the sodden it was 17030 and i was scared i went to a cardiologist and did stress tests turned out i only needed to exercize i also had the tingling in my leg but the tingling in the face is your blood pressure and the night probs with your legs could be rls restless leg syndrome it can make a person misserable..
Avatar f tn i personally would much rather a doctor tell me the truth that they do not know instead of trying to pretend like its not important or that ur crazy or it will just go away, i think its great what ur nuerologist said, its a good way of admitting they can not know everything and as much as we wish want to know its true that they can not know it all, noone knows everything so i guess its good as long as they try and mine keep trying and like you said as long as we dont give up and keep looking for
Avatar n tn I'm 44 and have lower back pain (feels like kidneys are hurting) and a radiating lower abdominal and testicular pain. It comes and goes but has been bad for the last week or two. Worse when lying down. All of these postings are complaining of same or similar symtpoms, but I don't see any answers! Has anyone found the root cause of these problems?
Avatar f tn hi, i would appreicate any input. had ct/diverticulitis put on levaquin, potassium dopped to 2.3 was given 4 bags. still having discomfort BUT now, i have pain in left side of back, shoots pain off & on and there's discomfort,soreness under left breast toward middle, tender to touch but notice going to pee alots!! i didn't know if this is something with bladder or kidneys after attaack of diverticulitis. dr said wants me to see a GI and get a colonsopy.
Avatar n tn The doctor determined it was a kidney infection and I was sent home with Levaquin (powerful antibiotic) and pain meds, neither of which did much for the pain. When I saw my doctor on Monday, the pain was not going away. He said it wasn't my kidneys but my back. I gave a urine sample and was told the white count was up but after culturing it, found no infection. I saw a chiropractor over the next 5 days.
Avatar n tn Every test in the book I have been given. The last is a spinal tap for ms. I am really scared. My legs are week and feel disconnected to my body at times. I also have anxiety attacks even with enjoyable situations. I walk my dogs in the morning thinking this will help relieve the stress but come back exhausted, weak legs, wobbly head and with little will to continue the day. The smallest thing can turn me upside down. This started about two months ago.
Avatar n tn see new urologist - injects chemical antibioltic cocktail into prostate via anus, no help after 1 such injection, have 2 more scheduled Basically, i have a redness around my urethra, where i think pus seaps out at night. The end of my penis is red and irritated constantly and if you look really carefully, you can see veeery tiny red dots. I am having weakened erections and discomfort ejaculating. I have done a ton of research on my own and have no idea waht i can do to help myself.
Avatar n tn Hi there I went to see my doctor because I have had lower right back pain for awhile, in July I had a Hysto- because I had Endometrosis and the pain in my lower right back has never really left and he suggested to check my urine well sure enough I had a bladder infection, treated me the 14 days with a Sulpher antibotic went back and nothing the infection still present so he put me on levaquin 500 mg for 14 days went back and still have an infection please help if this has happened to anyone or
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with bronchitis and prescribed hydrocodone and levaquin. Then I was prescribed an albuterol inhaler and Tussinex. Finally, I had to go to urgent care after severe episodes of the tickle in the throat, followed by a hacking cough that left me gasping for air and choking, sometimes vomitting if had food on my stomach. After these episodes I have to belch several times to release the pressure from my chest. Believe me this is very embarrassing in public.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
