Adverse Reactions to Avelox
My name is Mihaela. I was coming back from a week vacation in Mexico where I became seriously sick having almost all the symptoms of a terrible flu. I took chest X-ray and I discovered a lower left lobe pneumonia.
It is coming like a nightmare because I am healthy in general.
The doctor prescribed me 5 tablets of Avelox and I take one of them any other day. To be honest I have some sorts of reaction like tingling of the hands and right side of the face, nausea and dizziness, and I feel weak when I take this antibiotic. I take also twice a day Tamiflu. Neither I or the doctor are convinced if it is a viral(prone to say this), or it is bacteria.
I suppose it is viral because my status is improved over 4 awful days, I don't have fever anymore, I can eat.
But with the adverse reaction of this medicine it is a risk for me of developing some threatening conditions such as tendonitis or heart complications? What alternative antibiotic should I be know to ask or to have?
