Common Questions and Answers about Levaquin penicillin allergy

levaquin

Avatar n tn I've been having urinary problems for six years. I took the antibiotic levaquin and it started working, but I didn't complete the regimen. I started back taking it, but the levaquin didn't work. I've also taken cipro, doxcycline, z- pak, penicillin, oflox, and many more. Nothing has worked so far. I recently went to a urologist and did a semen culture. The test came back positive for viridian streptococcus. He prescribed me penicillin and it didn't work for me.

Avatar n tn Since you have no known allergy for Levaquin, it can be presumed to be safe for you. However a person can develop allergy or intolerance to a drug after multiple doses too. Hence one should be careful but not scared or worried. Chances are more that there will be no harm this time too. “LEVAQUIN® is contraindicated in persons with known hypersensitivity to LEVAQUIN® or other quinolone antibiotics.

Avatar n tn Is diverticulitis an infection? Should it be treated with penicillin. I have had agonizing pain for one week on the lower right hand of the abdomen and am constipated.

Avatar n tn to charge higher prices. As far as the allergy is concerned, since there is trace amounts of penicillin in the eggs, your advice is well received and we will check to see if she has a general allergy to eggs.
Avatar f tn You must undergo both skin and blood tests to determine what the allergy is due to. The chances that it is due to Penicillin are very slim, according to me. It is just co-incident with your intake of Penicillin. The only other possibility is some expedient in penicillin medication that is causing allergy, and that is also present as an ingredient in other food items that you are consuming. This could be causing the allergy to come back again and again.

Avatar m tn However penicillin allergy itself is very dangerous. Even if it causes mild reaction at the first dose, subsequent doses’ cumulative anaphylaxis is itself life threatening. Today there are many alternatives to penicillin. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage without further details. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn About 2 1/2 months ago I got a bad tooth infection that turned into a bad sinus infection in spite of three courses of penicillin and two tooth extractions. The sinus infection never went away and has been making my life miserable. So finally I go for a CT scan, which confirmed that I have pansinusitis (ALL of my sinuses on the left side of my face are completely full. Radiologist said not a single speck of open space left) and I have been referred to an ENT and put on Levaquin.
Avatar n tn Does and allergy to Amoxil mean an allergy to most\all penicillon drugs. We just found out our daughter has an allergy to Amoxil so should she be taking any antibiotics from the Penicillon family?
Avatar n tn Did you by any chance take Levaquin for the UTI? Some people experience quite a bit of pain in their joints from that med, especially the knees. Some of my nurse colleagues actually call the resulting shuffle the "Levaquin shuffle". I have also heard of pain elsewhere in the body after taking Levaquin...This could very well be an allergy but I am no doc so please take what I say lightly. IT is best to always consult your doctor especially if you think it might be a reaction to the med.

Avatar m tn Hi, Symptoms of an allergic reaction to amoxicillin, a member of penicillin, may include anaphylaxis, hives, below-the-skin swelling, or asthma symptoms. Skin testing is the best method for diagnosing a penicillin allergy. If found to be allergic, the main treatment is avoidance of future use of amoxicillin and related antibiotics. Other groups of antibiotics with the same efficacy, may be used to treat the infection.
Avatar m tn I am allergic to Penicillin antibiotic medications, and have been for about 20 years. I am wondering if I would also be allergic to something like Brie cheese, which uses Penicillium Candida mold in the cheesemaking process.
Avatar f tn If you have a strong family history of penicillin allergy, then amoxicillin group also should be avoided. Also please mention this fact to any doctor you or your daughter and other children visit. An antiallergic like Benadryl should be given and please stop the medicine. Discuss with your doctor as soon as possible. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
