Hi thanks for your question
You had UTI for which levoquin were prescribed to you.
You’re still having symptoms of urgency, leaking of urine, back pain and nausea
The urgency and leaking of urine are due to cystitis (infection of urinary bladder)
Back pain is also due to UTI.
These symptoms will persist till infection is completely treated.
As for nausea is concerned, either it could be due to side effect of Levoquin or due to UTI,as UTI also produces nausea.
Take plenty of water and continue with Levoqiune as prescribed.
Hope fully you will be symptoms free in a week time.
Hope this answer your question.
