What is the reason you are on Levofloxacin? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? When did it start? Does anything make it better or worse? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes, cough, weigh loss? Does anyone around you have similar problem? Were you in contact with sick people? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any other medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?

My first Dr. in another state started me with .50Mg then i went to .88MG, things were still not right. Meaning, not sleeping, unhappy, other symptons, found through blood tests. yes , i am over weigh as i had both knees replaced after a car accident. But it took 5 years to get both done. really could not walk etc. Then I moved to Pasadena, Ca where i had the other replaced 2 yrs ago. but I keep falling and now have a cracked vertabra in the lower 4 and 5.Yes, it is consistent. and getting worse.I am 5ft 5in tall and weight 187lbs. UGH! No swollen lymph nodes. Have a cough from allergies, i guess. My grand mother on my mother:s side had a goither? I am taking a low dose of amlodipine besylate 5MG. 1 a day. and i am Bi-Polar and have aken the same meds. for 18 yrs.
I would rather talk on the phone?(###) ###-####

Sorry for the delay.

Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

I can't understand why your doctor prescribed levofloxacin. What diagnosis did your doctor tell you? Did you have chest x-ray?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I see. It is thyroid hormone called Levothyroxine. You could have excessive levothyroxine. You should decrease the dose. But you should call your doctor before you decrease the dose.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Look. I have tried a low dose becaus my thiroId was, IS LOW!! YOU ARE NOT READING THIS RIGHT. SORRY.
Thank You,
