Subject: 3 yrs or more 

             Based on my experience with the ADR to Levaquin, it takes at least 3 years to be able to live/perform a near normal life! 

Even after 3 years, symptoms still exist, i.e.., numb toes, pain in ankles, burning (eyes, mouth, skin), visual problems, passing pain in back of hands and lower arms, and at times - imbalance in walking, etc. I still have neuro problems with my brain.    

I could not work the first 1 1/2 yrs after the adverse reaction. I only had one pill, and my being was "devastated" for a long time! I can only extend my heart felt "caring" to those that took Levaquin much longer!

 This site is wonderful-- to turn to! I read all your posting with great interest and compassion.
