PneumoniaUrinary Tract InfectionsLevaquin Sinus Infections
These drugs have a SCARY history with MANY problems associated with them, yet they are very often considered 'safe' and are given for even fairly minor infections that many researchers believe are not even bacterial infections -and therefore should not be treated with antibiotics in the first place!!
This class of antibiotics has so many Uncommon Side Effects, like skin cancer and Cipro Tendonitis, and they have so many peculiarities and serious Levaquin Drug Interactions, such as that between Levaquin and Prednisone, that I've written many many pages exclusively on the dangers of this class of antibiotics.

AKA Sulfonamide Drugs
The BIGGEST of the Sulfa Antibiotic Side Effects is allergic reaction. There are SO many people with allergic reactions to sulfa drugs that this is really a MAJOR concern. If you know that you have an allergy to sulfa drugs then you should inform your physician and never take them. Ideally, you should wear a Medic Alert bracelet in case you are ever in an accident and are unable to tell anyone about this allergy.
Sulfa allergies range anywhere from mild rashes to full blown emergency Anaphalactic Reactions. If you have had an allergic reaction to sulfa drugs before, it COULD be worse the next time, so never take the chance and be sure that you never take sulfa drugs again.
If this is the first time that you have taken a Sulfonamide, then just be aware of any reactions. If you DO have an allergic reaction, then stop taking the antibiotics right away and notify your doctor immediately.
