From those that have taken it.
When does a levaquin herx start. This is 3 days on it and I feel not much. Is it too early. Every abx I have take is different as to when the herx starts but usually on the 4th day some earlier some later.

Sorry, I don't remember when it started, but it lasted six weeks for me.

cleo, maybe you will not experience much of a herx like effect with Levaquin. I feel better on it and worse when off of it. We can hope that you will feel better too [Smile]

I took it for 30 days. I never herxed. For me, it was like taking nothing. But, evidently it got rid of my bart.

I hope it is the same for you.
