What should I avoid while taking Levaquin?

You should avoid driving a car, operating any machinery, or participating in any activity that requires direct attention or high focus because Levaquin can cause confusion, weakness, and tiredness. Try to avoid long periods of exposure to sunlight because Levaquin may make your skin sensitive to sunlight and more prone to infection. If you are taking Levaquin through injection, do not reuse needles. It is important to follow your prescription directions so do not alter your dose or stop taking it even if you feel better.
