I began taking the antibiotic Levaquin (500mg/14 days) 2 months ago for a sinus infection. All cleared up nicely and I got better quickly. Then, about a month later I had another sinus infection brewing and upon a visit to my general practitioner, she gave me Levaquin to knock it out before it got too far ahead of me. In addition, she also prescribed me Wellbutrin 150mg for my seasonal affective disorder. All was fine for the first week or so. I began to develop a rash of sorts on my torso. After a few days, it seemed to get worse and spread. It began to look more like hives. Called the doctor and was told to stop Wellbutrin immediately. The Levaquin was rounding down to the end of the dose. Waiting for Wellbutrin to rid itself from my body was brutal (at least we assumed it was this). The Hives spread and grew and then my entire body began to itch. Some areas with little red bumps, some with no bumps of any kind. The only thing that didn't itch were my hands, feet and face. It has been about 4 weeks and the itch has finally gotten the best of me with 2 trips to the ER in 2 days. Unfortunately this morning, I had to be taken from my job because I felt like my insides were "on fast forward" and couldn't think clearly and felt "foggy". My thought to this is a reaction to Levaquin because from what I've read, its a very dangerous drug. How long would it take to leave my body? I started it January 22 and took it for 10 days. I am slowly going out of my mind. I need to know what the ***l is happening to me and how long I have to endure this!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
