Here are some ...: Both azithromycn and moxifloxacin are not the first choice for treating chlamidia or gono, but may be used as alternative.

For some, 60 mg at one time can cause feelings of nervousness, mood swings, insomnia etc, as well as elevations in blood sugar and blood pressure. If you are experiencing these, you could try splitting the dose in half and take it twice per day, or if that is still causing side effects, you may need to take a lower dose.Talk to your Dr. ...Read more

Possible, not common: The FDA has reported acute liver failure in 6.6 cases per 10 million prescriptions of moxifloxacin (Avelox).

How long does avelox stay your system?

How long does avelox stay your system?

Usually in 2-3 days: Avelox has a half-life of about 12 hours (taken orally, 15hrs in IV form)--this means in 12 hours, 1/2 of what you took into your body is gone. In another 12hours, 1/4 left, at 36hours, 1/8 isl left etc..So for for the typical course of about 10 days therapy, most of the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is out of your system in about 2-3 days following your last dose--very cool biochemistry. Have fun learning. Good luck. ...Read more
