Hi [...],

Thank you so much for taking the time to write up your post.  It is amazing!  I am so very glad that you are feeling so much better now and hope for even more improved health in your future.

I also took floxin, Avelox, and had a very bad reaction to it.  I was probably in Tolerance Benzo W/D, but didn't know it.  That was two years ago and I still have some effects from it.  But I'm much better this second year.  I am feeling very grateful.

Thanks again,
[...]

I am also one of the unfortunate ones who took a fluoroquinolone antibiotic (Avelox) while on benzos (Klonopin). Like you, I was thrown into tolerance w/d immediately. I am so familiar with many of the symptoms you mentioned, especially cognition and memory problems. Congrats on ur recovery.

Hi [...],

I see  you edited your post and was wondering how you are doing now.  This process is so crazy.  I am not planning on posting a success story until I have no symptoms for 4 months.  I got slammed on the 11th and 18th month mark off date. 

I am another one who took xanax due to Levaquin toxicity.  :pokey:

Please know that I am wishing you the very best.
