Levaquin is used to treat severe bacterial infections, and may be used to prevent, or slow down, anthrax after inhalation.
Levaquin is to be used in strict accordance with a doctor’s directions. While using Levaquin, increase your daily intake of fluids. For best results take Levaquin at the same time every day. To ensure that the infection clears completely, it is necessary to take the full course of Levaquin, as prescribed, even if you experience a significant improvement in your condition.
If a dose is missed, it can be taken as soon as you remember, as long as it does not clash with the next scheduled dose. In this case, rather skip the missed dose. Never take a double dose.
Side-effects of Levaquin include lightheadedness and dizziness which may intensify if Levaquin is taken in conjunction with alcohol and other medications. Levaquin is to be used with caution. In the early stages of treatment avoid driving or performing any potentially dangerous activity in case of an adverse reaction. If symptoms persist, or get worse, speak to your doctor immediately. Levaquin should only be used by the person for whom it was prescribed. Never increase or decrease the dosage without your doctor’s approval.
