No. But,: Levaquin (levofloxacin) should not cause frequent urination. Some medicines could slow down emptying of bladder (eg, decongestants). If the bladder does not empty well, frequent incomplete voids may develop. Also, subsequent UTI and kidney disease may develop in this case, esp in men with prostate enlargement.

Seems unlikely: Levaquin (levofloxacin) is an antibiotic frequently given for urinary tract infections which can cause frequent urination. It is possible that Levaquin (levofloxacin) could damage the kidneys and cause tubular injury making it difficult to concentrate the urine thereby increasing the urine output. There is no bladder toxicity so i think it is unlikely that urinary frequency would be a side effect.
