Less likely: Fatigue and weakness after pneumonia is less likely from levaquin (levofloxacin) than from general deconditioning after a severe illness. Great stress was placed on the body and sometimes takes months to fully recover. Concentrate on getting great nutrition, hydration, rest, sunlight and try to exercise as tolerated.
