I have been on Levaquin several times for bouts of asthmatic bronchitis. Until this past round of antibiotics, I have never had a problem with Levaquin and have always obtained good results. This time however, after finishing a 7 day 750 mg regimen, I have experienced some of the worst joint pain ever imaginable. My knees are so swollen that I have a hard time walking.

Comment:
I was prescribed this medication for a sinus infection. My options are limited because of allergies to antibiotics. I was suppose to start taking it today but after reading so many of these reviews, I'm not touching that thing no matter how much I paid for it. I'm going to ask for a different antibiotic. I am so sorry so many of you have suffered so much because of it. Thank you for sharin ... Show Full Comment
