I have had a $400.00 bottle of Levaquin sitting on the shelf for over two years. Bought it and then after reading up on it, decided it's risk was too great. I have taken a ton of Cipro and Levaquin in the past with no side effects, but from what I read, that doesn't mean I will not have horrible side effects the next time I take it. Forty two days on Levaquin and Tamsulosin completely cleared up my low-level chronic prostate condition for five years. That was the only thing that ever helped, but I have now taken that option off the table.
