Are My Vision Problems from Taking Levaquin?

by Joyce

Sunday afternoon, October 9, my vision became "damaged" . . . I am wondering if the 4-6 rounds of Levaquin I took from January to May could be the cause. (Please forgive any typos- I can see the keyboard but not what I type clearly).

Four CT scans are clear, one MRI shows slight shadow in right temporaral lobe. BP, sugar, cholesterol, etc., all okay. Stroke docs seem basically baffled.

Past few mos. have had severe sensitivity to sunlight, pain around eyes, stabbing pain in upper right area of right eye, "lightheartedness" when I get too hot (went away after eating something so attributed that to low blood sugar), extreme sensitivity to heat (sitting in AC bldg. with additional fan running, could stand it at least 15 degrees cooler -- 74 in here), occasional blank areas in sight -- upper left quadrant -- affected in both eyes.

Can't see to drive, read, do my work -- this is driving me NUTS!

Any info on how to determine whether or not leveaquin caused this or any additional info would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Vision problems from Levaquin
by: Kerri Knox, The Immune Queen

Yes, Vision Problems from the Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics are a real thing.

However, whether YOUR vision problems are due to the Levaquin you took, there is absolutely no way of knowing other than to have noted that you did not have vision problems prior to taking antibiotics, and now you have vision problems.

I hope that you can find some resolution to your eye problems. That doesn't sound like a pleasant thing to have to endure.

This sucks if my eyes do not return to normal and the ring in ears is almost unbearable. Hope my hearing returns to normal too. Fucking dr.s are idiots sometimes. Getting paid and do not have a clue
