Do you know if Levaquin is effective against MRSA (the drug resistant type of staph)?

Levaquin a a pretty strong broad spectrum antibiotic. I was told it was effective against staff also, when I had a cut on my leg that wasn't healing. There is an article on webmd about leep and side effects. Type leep in the webmd search engine.

I'm not sure how long. I'm familiar with Metronidazole (antimicrobial) and it generally works pretty well. Did they do cultures on your stool and urine? A couple years ago I had fever, diarrhea and bloody stools and they checked it. Found out I had campylobacter and gave me Cipro. I saw improvement within the first couple days.

If you're not seeing any improvement at all (fever gone? easing of blood in stool and urine, general feeling better) then you should at least give the doctor's office a call. You don't want to add anemia and dehydration to the problems you have already.
