Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Levoquin
Answer: Very similar drugs which is why I question why he/she switched you to such a similar drug? As to the future, this would depend on whether the pain went away as you stopped the Levaquin and if you had any increase in your CPK(a muscle enzyme or your sedimentation rate).
Answer: A very good drug, but very,very similar to cipro. Can't seem much advantage of one over the other if Cipro failed initially. I would favor Augmentin or Biaxcin.
