If im having tendon pain from levoflaxin will it be ok to wait until this evening to see a doctor?I stopped taking the medication.

If no change at all, call your doc If you are only 50% better by the time you finish the antibiotic, it means it's working, but you need a second course to kill all the rest of the germs. ...Read more
