My friend is going thru some misery now as she was prescribed 5 tablets of the generic Levaquin and after just taking 2 she is feeling advanced joint pains. She is not taking the balance...Will start with a supplement called UT Answer that contains D-Mannose. She was given this for a UTI.

Read some of the comments at the end of this link. It's hard to believe that doctors are pushing these drugs so much with all the reported damages.

Patients today NEED to know so much before embarking on the drugs they are being offered.
