I got tendinitis from levaquin. There are numerous class action lawsuits against Johnson and Johnson, the company that produces it. You must be diagnosed with tendon rupture or tendinitis within three months of taking levaquin to be elagable so if you feel anything while taking it be sure to see a doctor. I do not know what kind of compensation you get. I went to see a doctor yesterday, days before the deadline. I am much better than I was but just in case I wanted to be diagnosed.
