Any one ever taken the antibiotic Avelox?

I'm starting my first day on my 3rd round of antibiotics, but it's supposed to be stronger than the others. It better work, it cost $40 with insurance ($200 without). Any one ever used it?

  • Avelox is one of the best antibiotics available. Used to treat only bacterial infections.
    It is commonly prescribed after all other options are found not to work. It's very expensive but well worth it.
    Hope you feel better soon.

  • Can I ask what you're taking it for? I've taken a LOT of antibiotics but that doesn't sound like one of them (95% of the time I take them for upper resp/ear/sinus infections though).

  • Hmm, I'll have to keep that one in mind - thanks for sharing! Sorry I couldn't help you out though!

  • For a sinus infection, I think it's still relatively new since I didn't get a generic version of it. I'm definitely getting a netti pot after this.
