I just had my ADR to Avelox about a month ago now, among aches and pains that bore deep into my muscles, bones and Joints, and severe insomnia, I have also been experiencing bouts of depression.  I had never been depressed in my life before my reaction to the quinolone.  Now there are good days and bad  days.

Sometimes All I can do is cry and not know why I feel so sad.  I do believe from what I have read on the boards and heard from friends here that it is fairly typical in some people.  There are a lot of supportive people here who do understand, thankfully, because it is hard to go through depression alone.
