Has anyone had to take any antibiotics for pneumonia?  I have been given 2 shots of rocephin and now am on 7 days worth of Avelox.  Just wondering how they have affected you?

I had severe tendonitis after avelox - lasted for a week and now it is listed as a drug allergy for me. I had a shot of rocephin yesterday and it got rid of my fevers so I guess its working! When I had pneumonia I was hospitalized and had IV steroids and Levaquin.
