Given avelox for possible pneumonia. Feeling dizzy. Is this due to drug reaction with vyvanse?

Hi, i was given avelox for possible pnemonia. I took it and i am really dizzy unless i am laying flat. I called my dr back and she thought that maybe there was an interaction with my vyvanse that i also take. Called the pharmacist and he said no they were fine together. Called the dr back and she said it would be fine to rest n drink fluids. It has been 8 hours since i took it and im still dizzy. What shld i do?

Hi Dinkerton,
Thanks for writing in to Heathcare Magic!
I think the interaction or the intolerance to moxifloxacin is the cause for you dizziness.
Anyway the problem started with taking moxyflox so it must be connected to this.
I would advise to switch to another class of antibiotics like Cefixime for the pneumonia trouble.
To be on safer side stop moxyfloxacin and inform your physician.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
