Chris Crawford I am pleased to announced a long time member has agreed to help and mentor others in photographic technique. As he has long done so, perhaps this forum is a bit overdue. Christopher Crawford has been a professional artist and photographer for 20 years, most of that time spent documenting life in northern Indiana with his photographs and the stories that he writes to accompany them. In addition, Chris also creates tutorials where he teaches photography techniques, film processing, digital editing, film scanning, and printing. Ask Chris your technical questions, or to critique your photos. You can see more of his tutorials at http://crawfordphotoschool.com

For those who don't know, Levaquin and Levofloxacin are the same thing (Levaquin is the brand name, Levofloxacin the generic).


Your experience is one of the scary things about Levofloxacin is that the tendon damage can happen YEARS after a person stops taking it. It could very well be the cause of your injury. Was it repairable?

Nice to read you are feeling better, Chris. I hope you get completely out of the woods soon. I went through a bout of pneumonia myself during the Xmas season and had to take lots of antibiotics. The ones I was prescribed had a warning for Achilles tendon damage too. It felt like it took me ages to feel better but I am getting there. One day at a time.

The one I am on now isn't making me sick and my infection seems to be getting better. I have to take them for seven more days.
Wow! Glad you are getting better. Hang in there. You will be in my prayers.

Sorry you've been so sick, but good to know you are feeling better. Take it easy for a while and don't push it so you make a full recovery.
