A number of medications could potentially interfere with Levaquin. Interactions may occur if the antibiotic is taken together with corticosteroids, diabetes medicines, or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), to name a few. Some medicines may prevent Levaquin from being absorbed into the bloodstream. Other Levaquin drug interactions can increase the risk of certain complications, including tendon rupture, changes in blood sugar, and seizures.
