Reuters has a report on a new Canadian study:

Even though the risk of eye damage is still low, it seems that it might be prudent for physicians to try Ceftin for acute infections, before resorting to the flouroquinolones.

Hello, Dr. Marshall
I was just reading a prospect of Ceftin and I'm worried about some things, especially that doctors still dont accept MP and wouldn't know what to recommand. It says that Ceftin should be used with great caution in case of intestinal problems such as colitis which I have for all of my life I think, but I was diagnosed with it only 18 years ago...probably related to my SLE but back then, nobody knew. It also mentions kidney problems and I'm thinking about the high proteinuria, creatinin etc, due to SLE. So, in case of emergency, what should I do ?I'm worried about using fluoroquinolones... I repeat I come from Romania and under such circumstances, I better prevent than heal. :) so, just in case of emergency, I ask for your advice concerning that aspect. Thanks a lot.

The flouroquinolones seem to be OK for members taking Olmesartan. Maybe it protects against their side effect, who knows?

Ceftin is an effective antibiotic. People with colitis are going to react to most effective antibiotics, I suspect. But Doc ought to be able to control any reaction... Why not ask Doc to try a short course of Ceftin now, before you become too ill to check it out...

I just read this thread and realized that 12 years ago I was prescribed Levaquin for a week or two. About 8 months later I experienced a retinal tear. Fortunately it was caught in time and resolved with lazer surgery. Do not know if there is a connection or if this is just a coincidence.
