More Medicines That Interfere With Levaquin

NSAIDs
NSAIDs may increase the risk of central nervous system stimulation problems due to Levaquin. These problems include seizures, tremors, restlessness, anxiety, lightheadedness, confusion, hallucinations, paranoia, depression, nightmares, insomnia, and suicidal thoughts or acts. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Levaquin with an NSAID.
 
Oral Typhoid Vaccine
Antibiotics (including Levaquin) may decrease the effectiveness of the oral typhoid vaccine. If you have taken Levaquin recently or are currently taking Levaquin, your oral typhoid vaccine may need to be postponed for at least a day after taking Levaquin.
