Swollen mouth and lips after taking Avelox for chronic sinus infection
I was prescribed a 10 day prescription on Avelox for a sinus infection after Azithrormyacin ZPack did not work. It was a pretty stubborn infection, after taking 6 pills I had to stop because my body was itching so much that I had to take Benedryl to be able to sleep. The Benedryl relieved the itching. But what has got me bothered now a week after stopping the anti biotic is the the horrible dry mouth and my burning swollen lips. They feel like a drank screening hot coffee and burnt them. I started researching side effects and found this site. I was hoping to read that the side effect may disappear shortly but it looks like that may not be the case.
