I could see that you have been a bit over dosed with Levaquin 500 mg ,taking 4-6 tabs per day and for three days.For an infection like strep throat its better to start with drugs like Cephalosporins or pencillins and azithromycin or Co trimox.As drug like Levaquin has more fatal side effects I think its better you switch off to other broad spectrum antibiotics like said above.Stop using Levaquin now.Its not that long that you have severe adverse effects,so better change the prescription.Use salt water gargles to relieve symptoms of Strep throat.Get a better medication like Cepahlosporins.
I was taking one per day, as instructed. I went to see my doctor today, and he said it's unlikely that the Levaquin is causing these side effects. It's possible that I'm also experiencing spring allergies, which is giving me a throbbing, pressured, dull headache. Also, the fact that me worrying the "worst case" is attributing to my anxiety. I do feel better than yesterday, but with a minor headache still. I'm suppose to provide blood and a urine sample to make sure everything is normal.
Thanks for your input.
You are not being "overdosed". There are well documented problems with Levaquin. Get your physician to switch medications immediately.

Levaquin made me very ill. I have lupus & was given Levaquin for a sinus infection. Big no no. Levaquin can & will give you autoimmune disease symptoms and I already had one. Trust me it is not worth it. After 6 pills my calf muscles began to cramp. Dr. says ibuprofen 600mg a day.. Well its been all downhill from there. I developed full body tendinitis,(couldn't walk) my joints & muscles swelled so bad my nerves were compressed. Numbness & tingling everywhere, cramps in all muscles. My skin felt like someone poured acid it. I had flu symptoms. I am on my 2nd round of steroid treatments. The Levaquin caused my lupus to flare.I landed in the ER one night. Do not take ibuprofen or steroids the same time you take Levaquin. It makes the side effects much worse. This drug is toxic. If your given it ask for something else, there are many antibiotics. My dr.. has listed this as an allergy. yeah no kidding. Never again will I take this or others in that family-Cipro & avelox.
