I guess I am a 1% too. I went to the Doctor, who told me I had an infection. He prescribed me levaquin, gave two trial boxes and told me to take one then and go down the hall and fill a script. I took it and walked down the hall (there was no paper in the box describing it or the side effects. Within 15 minutes I was sneezing and itching, felt like my face was starting to swell up...serious metallic taste in my mouth. It happened fast. As I was getting the prescription filled, I asked the pharmacist if anyone reported being allergic to this stuff. He said, "Highly unlikely, this is the best antibiotic you can get in my opinion." I thought, OK..I'll take your word for it. How stupid is that? Fast forward to 36 hours later and I still had not gone to sleep. I was WIDE awake. I was so awake I could have run a marathon. I have some experience with psychedelics and for hours 2 through 24 I felt like I had taken LSD or mescaline. I was hallucinating, colors were very vivid, sounds sounded like I was in a tunnel, very rapid and circular thinking. There was definite pressure built up in my head...bad headache and my ears would pop if I would yawn, like I was on a plane. If I had no psychedelic experience I would have really lost it I think. I became alternatingly anxious and depressed. It has been 4 days and I can sleep if I take 50 mgs of Benadryl. I have no muscle pain from it that I can tell...just a highly affected nervous system..and it has affected it more and for a longer duration than any illegal drug I have ever taken. If you are researching this drug take it from me..tell you Doc to shove it, ask her if she is getting a kickback for it. I am scared for people out there...I am fairly experienced with drugs...don't mess with this levaquin stuff...please don't give to your kids!
