Levaquin Safety Information

Levaquin® (levofloxacin) is a prescription antibiotic licensed to treat a number of bacterial infections. There is a lot of information concerning the safety of Levaquin that you should be aware of before starting treatment.
 
Since Levaquin is not suitable for everyone and may cause problems in people with certain medical conditions, it is important to tell your healthcare provider about all existing conditions you have before taking the medication. You should ask your healthcare provider if Levaquin is safe for you if you have:
 
  • Kidney disease, such as kidney failure (renal failure)
  • Seizures or epilepsy
  • Had a heart, liver, or lung transplant
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Cerebral arteriosclerosis (hardening and thickening of the arteries of the brain)
  • Low potassium levels in the blood (hypokalemia)
  • Any other allergies, including allergies to food, dyes, or preservatives.
     
This medicine can cause rupture of tendons, nerve problems, and severe allergic reactions. Make sure to contact your healthcare provider if you develop any symptoms of these conditions (such as tendon soreness or pain, unusual sensations, and a rash or hives).
