Donohue: Tendon rupture while taking Levaquin rare
Donohue And Roach: I'm writing in reference to the antibiotic drug Levaquin. I contracted bronchitis in January 2012 and was treated with this drug, and it gave me tendonitis of my left Achilles' tendon.

I was admitted to the hospital for pnuemonia. I was given levaquin and prednisone thru an IV. About 6 days later I was discharged and felt great. Then less that a week both feet started swelling and I felt like I had to walk on the sides of my feet. I barely could walk and went to the dr who treated me. He prescribed water pills. I didn't bother to have them filled. The next day my primary care dr admitted me and I had ruptured both my achilles tendons. After surgery and another 2 weeks in the hospital I was transferred to a rehab hospital to teach me how to walk again. I contracted c-dif and fell one nite and was admitted to another hospital for surgery again on my left foot. After 4 months of hospitalization, wearing cam walkers 24/7 I finally came home. I have lost part of my short term memory and now am being treated by a nuerologist who discoved I'm having brain seizures normally assosiated w/levaquin. My credit is destroyed, am being hounded by bill collectors and my life for one and 1/2 years have been devistated.
