Moxifloxacin and tendon rupture risk

I am currently on Avelox for a sinus infection, while trying to rehab from a ACL revision with quad tendon graft.  I am also dealing with trying to settle down patellar tendonitis in the operative knee.

Should I take any additional precautions while taking this medication, and how long does the risk remain after finishing the med?  I have been placed on Avelox for 7 days.  I have three days to go!

Thanks

finish the meds. the risk is small; particularly for the tendons in your knee while you are rehabbing them.
