no known interactions

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

There are no known interactions between these substances.

They can be safely used together.

There are other interactions with levofloxacin so if you are using other medications, these can be checked as well

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

I am 45 years old, for the past 5 years I usually get a case of prostatitis once per year. Just finishing up a round of anti-biotics (levaquin) and my urologist tried a new bph medicine with me (rapaflow). Within 3-4 days of the meds, my symptoms all but left but after a week I experienced diarrhea (witch lasted almost 2 weeks) and also noticed little or now semen in ejaculations. Also, after bowel movements, over the last 4 days, I find myself having to sit and wait for small amounts of urine to pass. No matter how long I wait, I usually find I leak a few drips shortly afterward. Any comments / advice would be appreciated

I've been diagnosed with streptococcus virdan. I've taken several medications such as levaquin, cipro, bactrim, doxycline and many more. The levaquin started working but I quit taking it because I felt better and now I've been having this problem for six years due to the fact I stopped taking my medication. About a year ago, a doctor did a semen culture and I was positive for virdan. He prescribed me penicillin and of course it didn't do anything. Do you have any suggestions of what I need to do because this has been and ongoing process forever
