Numb hands for an hour, severe headache, blurry vision, rash on my arms. And this was with my first dosage. Doctor didn't even ask to see what previous antibiotics worked for me in the past. He just gave me Avelox and prednisone and said "on your way". Also google how Avelox and prednisone react. Then you'll think twice. So pissed off.

two hours after taking one pill i ended up in the emergency room. i got extremely dizzy, my skin on my face, neck, and chest turned bright red and my mouth got immediate cotton mouth. Also, i felt completely panicky. The er put me on an iv drip to flush it out of my system and was told never to take it again. very scary reaction and it took me over 24 hrs to feel like myself again.

If you're not allergic, this is a great treatment for sinus infections. Once a day for 5 days and I started feeling better after one treatment. Take the full 5 days.

Comment:
Within the first day of taking this medication I noticed my left arm becoming increasingly 'stiff' and a feeling of cramp in both my feet. By Day 3 I could no longer lift my arm high enough to wash my hair in the shower. Once I realised it was probably the medication I stopped taking it immediately, the arm improved but I occasionally have trouble with both feet. The side-effects for thi ... Show Full Comment
