Within one hour of the first dose, I had severe reaction with swelling of the lips, eyes, inside of mouth and throat. After a trip to the emergency room, complete with intravaneous histimine blockers & steroids and a follow up course of oral steroids I am on my third day out of work. This is worse than the original sinus infection. Do NOT take this drug!

It just nerver seems to totally clear up.

I've been on this once before and it was a godsend compared to the cipro and z-pacs i had always been stuck on. I'm allergic to penicillin so my choices to treat my constant sinus infections and subsequent bronchitis are limited. So far avelox has been the most effective and i feel relief sooner than the others. In all fairness though, i may be immune to the others. I was informed by my al ... Show Full Comment

I am half way through treatment. My staph infection is getting better, but the treatment is almost worse than the illness. It is hard for me to function for the first 7-8 hours after I take the pill. Nausea, dizziness, stomach pain. I am taking pro-biotics which help a little. I mentioned to my husband that I felt like what I imagine chemotheraphy might be like. Then I did research and found ...
