Frequently Asked Questions
What is levofloxacin (Levaquin) and how does it work?
Levofloxacin (Levaquin) is a medication in the quinolone family of antibiotics, which is used to treat bacterial infections in many different parts of our bodies.
A levofloxacin prescription works by targeting harmful bacteria. The medication then prevents its growth, allowing your body’s natural defences to fight off the infection, or it kills the bacteria outright.
What are the uses for levofloxacin (Levaquin)?
Most frequently you could be given a Levaquin prescription online in order to help treat bacterial infections, like pneumonia or sinusitis.
In extremely rare cases, you may also be given a Levaquin prescription as a treatment for an Anthrax infection after inhalation exposure.
How do you use levofloxacin (Levaquin)?
Typically, a levofloxacin prescription is given as either a tablet or in a liquid form, to be taken orally.
Dosage and regularity of use will be determined by the doctor writing the prescription. Always take your Levaquin prescription with at least 8 ounces of water, to help your kidneys safely process the medication. Never take more than your prescribed dosage, because it could lead to severe or dangerous side effects.
In some emergency cases, levofloxacin is given intravenously. However, this would only be done at a registered medical facility by a licensed physician and wouldn’t be prescribed in this way for use at home.
What are the side effects and risks of levofloxacin (Levaquin)?
Common side effects from taking Levaquin include:
Less common side effects also include:
- Stomach cramps
- Skin rash
- Mood swings
- Muscle inflammation
- Tendonitis and tendon rupture
- Mild hallucinations
Who should not take levofloxacin (Levaquin)?
Before you accept a levofloxacin prescription online it is important to note that levofloxacin may cause swelling or tearing of tendons (the fiber that connect bones to muscles in your body). This is especially common in the Achilles’ tendon located in the heel of your foot.
It can happen immediately or up to several months after you finish your prescription, and it may cause tendon issues in certain patients after taking their prescriptions (seniors and children).
Be sure to tell your doctor if you’ve ever experienced:
- Tendon problems
- Bone problems
- Arthritis or joint problems
- Blood circulation issues
- Hardening of the arteries
- High blood pressure
- Heart problems (including heart rhythm problems)
- Muscle or nerve disorders
- Kidney disease
- Seizures or epilepsy
- Severe head injury
- Brain tumours
- Hypokalemia (low potassium in your blood)
- Genetic disorders such as Marfan Syndrome or Ehler’s-Danlos Syndrome
- Myasthenia Gravis (severe muscle weakness)
Because of its serious potential side effects, a Levaquin prescription should typically be used when an infection can’t be treated by other, safer antibiotics.
Never give levofloxacin to a child without first consulting a doctor, as they’re more likely to experience severe side effects.
Before you start a levofloxacin prescription, talk to your doctor if you’re pregnant. It’s currently unknown what effect levofloxacin could have on an unborn baby.
