Levaquin is a quinolone antibiotic commonly used for the treatment of skin, lung, and urinary tract infections that have been caused by bacteria. Levaquin is effective for many types of bacteria, and was found to be comparatively safe with mild side effects. In general, Levaquin is very well tolerated by most patients. Some people may, however, display certain side effects, such as diarrhea, itching, nausea, dizziness, mild abdominal pain, flatulence and rash. Some more serious effects are nightmares, insomnia, restlessness, suicidal thoughts and tremors.
In case of developing an allergic reaction to Levaquin (skin rash, hives, trouble breathing), as well as a tendon rupture, pain, or swelling you need to seek immediate medical help. In some cases this drug can make the patient develop phototoxicity leading to blistering sunburns after exposure to either natural or artificial sunlight. You need to inform your doctor of any medical conditions that are likely to interact with the treatment - for example, a history of low potassium levels, abnormal heart rhythms, etc. You must not drive a vehicle after taking this drug as it may cause dizziness and result in an accident.
