Customer Question
Hello I was taking...

Hello I was taking LevoFLOXacin 750 MG at the end of May and received extreme joint pain and for the last month I have tingling and pins and needles through my entire body. I have had all my blood work done and appears normal with the result I have had a reaction. I have gone to a Vascular Dr. and my veins are fine. I think this is my next step. Is there anything that I can take to reduce these effects?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

It has been good until I was prescribed this antibiotic for respitory infection

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not really. This was not my Primary Care provider who perscribed this

Well it seems related to your nerves more . Fluoroquinolones have been found to have caused peripheral neuropathy in few studies.

You can take vitamin B12 . Also of help are medications that decrease nerve sensitivity such as pregabalin or gabapentin.

You will need nerve conduction studies ( NCS) to find out whats wrong with nerves.

Other causes of neuropathy also need be ruled out with appropriate tests .

hope it answered your query.

Feel free to ask any more queries.

Please reward a 5 stars rating if you are satisfied.
