I was prescribed Levofloxacin, (Levaquin), on 9/1...

  • I was prescribed Levofloxacin, (Levaquin), on 9/19/16, after the Z pack wasn't helping my bronchitis. Almost immediately, I lost my ability to taste and smell. It is now over 3 months without two of my basic senses. I am able to detect sweetness, tartness, salt, some spiciness, but wonder if the senses will ever return. Oh to smell the turkey baking or the bacon in the microwave. I truly hope this is not permanent. Went to specialist ENT who said the drug may have killed the nerves in nose that enable smell. Since mentioning my problem to friends I have discovered a number of others who have or are suffering the same result after taking the drug. Is there any class action law suit pending that I could join?
