Tendonities from Levofloxacin
I have had broncitis for about three months. My doctor prescribed Levofloxacin 500mg, after the Azithromycin did not work. He prescribed 7 pills of Levofloxacin. I was to take one pill once a day.
After taking my fourth pill, I started feeling pain in my left upper arm. It got worse after I took the fifth pill. I went doctor, who told me to keep taking it until it was gone. It was at that appointment that I found out that a side effect of Levofloxacin was tendonitis.
I stopped at the sixth pill; wouldn't take the last one. When I talked with the nurse from the doctor's office, she just said to put cold packs on my arm several times a day. I cannot got rid of the pain in my arm. When I move my arm up, it is extremely painful.
