Side effects

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Common side effects of levoflox are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation and vomiting.

I usually stop levoflox and switch over to oflox or ciproflox if the side effects are unbearable. If you can tell me what side effects you are having then I can recommend what needs to be done.

I hope I was of help, please get back to me for any further queries

Tendon rupture is known with levoflox, I recommend that you stop this drug immediately. If i were to be your doctor I would put you on some other class of drug.
For the pain you can take tab acetaminophen three times daily
