I am taking levaquin, albuterol inhaler, and fluticasone nasal spray. No chest pain just when i cough up green crap. I have stuffy nose and a bit of sinus pressure. I started on the antibiotic Saturday.

Thanks for providing more information.

The combination of Levaquin with alcohol can be toxic. The antibiotic decreases the liver's ability to break down the alcohol which causes the levels of alcohol stay high once you have had some alcohol.

Additionally, the Levaquin with the Alcohol lead to a high risk of hepatotoxicity (liver poisoning) which can cause permanent liver damage.

It is not a good idea to drink any alcohol while on antibiotics.

Alcohol can also cause you to heal slower.

I hope this helps.
