Have taken several times for sinus infections, and it works great! After a couple days, I feel terrific! It is the ONLY antibiotic that doesn't bother my stomach. No side effects! Thank God for the doctors who created Levaquin!

I had been feeling sick for 4 weeks before taking Levaquin and finally went to the doctor to get something for my cold. My doctor gave me Levaquin. On day three of taking it I couldn't walk and had so much pain in my joints. I felt like I had been beat with a stick.

I don't even know how this is allowed on the market. After my first dose I had the most vivid dreams I have ever had. For the first time I felt pain in my dream. My teeth getting kicked in, the wind getting knocked out of me. With the second dose, on the second night I experienced truly the most terrifying night of my life.
