Is it advisable to take levofloxacin during cystitis ?

I was diagnosed with cystitis ( bladder infection) a couple of weeks ago during which, I went to the urinals too often and felt irritating sensations around my abdomen as well as sensitivity on the tip of my penis. I was prescribed levofloxacin (500mg/2 times daily) and vitamin C (500mg/2 times daily) for a week. But I only felt better occasionally and after a week the doctor had my blood and urine tested again yesterday and found that they were both in normal condition. But today I noticed that I have been to the urinals more often than normal, as if the problem hasn t really changed much. I also began feeling irritated by the sensations and the unstoppable urge to urinate. I am afraid to take levofloxacin again, because after over a week of using it I began to feel pain on my tendons . What am I supposed to do now?

you have got recurrent urinary infection,you should go for urine culture so that you may know the bacteria causing infection and medicines most effective against them so we may prescribe proper medicine for complete cure.
the medicines you has taken may not be effective or mild effective so result is not achieved.
You may go for ultra sound to rule out other pathology.
