Taking Levaquin and Prednisone Together is a Serious Mistake
In the past I have taken cipro for diverticulitis. Several times after taking this I had alot of foot pain and trouble walking. My Dr seemed to find it no big deal when I mentioned it to him at least 3 times in the past. This month I have taken prednisone for an allergic reaction to the dye contrast injection they give before a CT scan.
Two days after this I went to the doctor again for a respiratory problem and fever that I have had now for 2 months or more. I advised the Dr that I just taken a high dose of the prednisone.
I was prescribed Levofloxacin for 10 days. I was glad it was not Cipro and was not concerned with problems. On the 8th day I woke up to major foot pain and could not bare weight which then it progressed up my leg to my knee. My knee cap feels floating now, like not tightened down. I also have a burning throughout my foot and my calf and upper leg muscle feels like I've been kicked very hard there. I can barely walk at all and I am in tremendous pain. Is there anything to cure this???????
