    Treatment lasted for ten days until yesterday. It did make me feel better, most of the infection is gone (although, even though the treatment has ended, I still feel some of the symptoms). However in the past few days my anxiety has gotten dramatically worse, I have experienced labyrinthitis, shakiness, blurry vision and exhaustion. After reading about the side effects and other reviews I believe ... Show Full Comment

Doctor told me to finish the 7 day course so I continued. Next day, I was more uncomfortable, shaky, was hard to focus, feeling more sick. By the 4th day I couldn't get out of the bed because of newly added symptoms ex ... Show Full Comment

    Numb hands for an hour, severe headache, blurry vision, rash on my arms. And this was with my first dosage. Doctor didn't even ask to see what previous antibiotics worked for me in the past. He just gave me Avelox and prednisone and said "on your way". Also google how Avelox and prednisone react. Then you'll think twice. So pissed off.
