Bad Reaction After Levaquin and Prednisone
Was prescribed Levaquin and Prednisone in June for a sinus infection. My doctor or pharmacist did not tell me it was dangerous nor concerning. I was previously on a dose of Ciprofloxacin still felt bad. I thought I had the flu or some type of bad disease were I felt like my entire body was shutting down.
At the time I saw an ent, a dentist,, an eye doctor & my family doctor. After taking Levaquin I had severe pain in my arms, hands & pelvis. I called the doctor the last day of my 5 day dose & he advised me not to take it. I called the pharmacy and they expressed no concern over my symptoms and told me to talk to my doctor. Since then I tested positive for an auto immune disorder. I am seeing a rheumatologist. He believes my symptoms may be a sign of lupus. 7 months later, I still have pain, in my shoulder hips and hands.
My hair is brittle and breaking off and I am having anxiety attacks. I was a healthy person only going thru menopause. I kept thinking these symptoms were related to that. I can pinpoint the exact day that all of my pain started& it was during my Levaquin and Prednisone
cocktail. I just started thinking of this again today. Just got off the phone with my pharmacyb&'they told me it is not a problem taking both drugs together. I strongly urge anyone to try a different med before poisoning your body.
