Subject: Re: Problems with Levaquin

             I called and asked and got the same response as you did - the response - Levaquin is out of your system in 24 hrs - any reactions you have stop when you stop taking the drug. I am not sure exactly how it works but I believe the FDA makes the drug companies responsible for keeping track of adverse reactions. The company does the research and keeps stats on drug reactions and then reports those to the FDA. The lady that I spoke with assured me that the problems that I was having had nothing to do with Levaquin and they had no reports regarding Levaquin that she was aware of -- Makes you wonder about the accuracy of what  Ortho reports to the FDA.
