Bear would be the BB to talk to about side effects of this medication. He's very helpful on these subjects. If he doens't have first hand experience He will most likely know where to point you to get the info.

Good timing. I just happened to take a peak here on BHW.
Like all antibiotics, Levofloxacin has a long list of possible side effects, but one notorious dreaded side effect of levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin (both in class called “floroquinolones”) is tendinitis or tendon rupture. I don’t think anyone knows for sure why that happens, and it’s actually rare. The most common tendon to rupture is the Achilles’ tendon, which really sucks, obviously. Because it’s such a dramatic event, it has gotten a lot of attention. Older people on steroids are at increased risk of tendon rupture. The more troubling, more common side effects are headache, dizziness, and neuropathy.
I used to use them a lot more than I do now, because of these side effects.
