If you have used Levaquin and experienced an increase or decrease in acne, please tell us about it here. Be sure to include as much information as possible, including when you started taking Levaquin, the dosage, other side effects you experienced, and anything else that might be relevant. Acne is sometimes a side effect of prescription drug usage, but other times it has to do with hard-to-track-down lifestyle changes, bacteria in your gut, or nutrient deficiency. In our experience, the best way to treat acne is by eliminating sugar, flour, dairy, caffeine, and vegetable oils from your diet. Supplementing zinc, vitamin b complex, boron, melatonin, and SOD is likely to help as well.
Acneresearch.org offers resources for acne sufferers, including success stories, links to and summaries of dozens of clinical acne studies, and a lifestyle routine designed to help you treat acne naturally. If you want individual advice or are interested in contributing to the body of knowledge on acne, fill out our survey. You do not need to live with acne — it is a disease caused by a combination of a western lifestyle and western diet. By treating your acne, you’ll likely find yourself healthier, happier, and more attractive — physically and emotionally.

I do not suffer from acne, and have been taking levaquin and have broken out in acne on my face the last 3 times I have taken it. Is this causing my acne? I have not changed any of my other medications. ImBecause this is the only oral antibiotic I am not allergic to I try and limit the amount I take so I don’t build up a resistance. I’m allergic to mycins, sulfas, aumentin, cipro, macrobid, penicillin(yes I realize levaquin is in this family), amoxicillin, keflex…..not antibiotics; Phenergan, latex and coconut. If I require other antibiotics I must be admitted to the hospital for IV for other types to be administered. I suffer from many autoimmune diseases lupus, sarcoidosis, fma, rls, oa, seizure disorders, peripheral and peroneal neuropathy, stage 3 kidney disease, iron deficient anemia just to name a few.
Started Levaquin, 100mg 1x a day, 4 days ago for flu complications. Noticed a decrease in mild acne on my face today, and less redness in my cheeks.
