I had a URI about two years ago and it was not going away so the doctor prescribed Avelox. I was very shocked at the package insert warnings but I decided to go ahead with the drug and disease. After about 48 hours my joint were aching so I called the doctor and said I would not take this drug.
I will NEVER take a drug in this class of antibiotics. I would suggest people stay away from them. Too much funny business AFTER these drugs went on the market. Buyer beware.
