Does taking a Rocephin shot while on Levaquin cause hallucinations?

Rocephin injection given on one evening, same dr. prescribed 7 pills of Levaquin 750 mg. starting next day, started having hallucinations after second pill, ER said to stop. Hallucinations never happened before until this, could this mixture of antibiotics caused these problems?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Ceftriaxone and Levaquin combination will not cause hallucination. Acute onset episode of hallucination requires further evaluation. Infections, electrolyte, and metabolic derangements should be ruled out. So please follow up with the emergency room as soon as possible.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
