I have been prescribed Levofloxacin because I have a touch of pneumonia. I have also had pancreatitis twice in the last five years. Is it possible that levofloxacin could trigger a round of pancreatitis in someone who is subject to pancreatitis? My email address is YYYY@YYYY . I am asking these questions because I am having pancreatitis-like symptoms after taking Levofloxacin for two days in a row.
Does Levofloxacin Trigger Pancreatitis?
Hi, Levofloxavin does not cause drug induced pancreatitis. You can safely continue Levofloxacin without much concerns. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
