Brief Answer:
Yes, Levaquin is a good drug for this!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed your information fully and this is a good choice to treat E. coli. I will like to know what you are being treated for. E. coli is a common cause of urinary tract infection but I don't want to assume that's what you are being treated for.

I will suggest you drink much water and control your blood pressure. Also, avoid walking without supporting yourself as you may sustain a fall whish is not a good experience because of possible complications.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me for more information and clarifications if need be.
