I really had high hopes for doing nebulized glutathione and achieving some level of improvement. Just like everything else I have tried it was not to be. I inhaled the glutathione and a few minutes later I had breathing problems. It felt like my chest was very heavy and I had some form of constricted breathing. I searched on the internet for this side effect and found a website that said if you experience rashes or breathing problems- bronchconstriction to immediately stop. I am not sure if I would have the same outcome if I had glutathione via an IV bag like some other people have had. I am a little scared to try that after my experience with the nebulized version. Nebulized glutathione is suppose to pass the blood brain barrier very easily helping many degenerative conditions.

Please educate others on the severe and often permanent side effects of quinolone antibiotics.

    I’m sorry that it didn’t work for you. Another way of upping your glutathione levels in an indirect way is by drinking whey protein, as well as taking vitamin c. Have you tried that?

    Here is a website I came across that describes the benefits of Glutathione and Levaquin:

    “Glutathione is produced in the human body. Glutathione is one of the main detoxifying substances in the liver. It is the liver’s primary defense against toxicity from acetaminophen (Tylenol). When people are deficient in glutathione (such as after fasting), they are more vulnerable to acetaminophen’s liver toxicity.

    Glutathione is also important for the health of the brain and nervous system. Glutathione is one of the most powerful brain antioxidants, and it has been used successfully in patients with Parkinson’s disease.

    Many practitioners of integrative medicine provide glutathione infusions. You can search for such practitioners at the website of the American College for the Advancement of Medicine at All members of ACAM are medical doctors. You can search for practitioners in your area. Next to the listing of each doctor, there is a list of the services they perform. Many of them offer glutathione therapy.


    Rob’s report of major improvement with glutathione therapy is most encouraging. It is the first positive report I have received from a fluoroquinolone victim.

    My assessment is that Rob, his wife, and doctor, were sincere and reasonably accurate in providing me with information. I believe that the degree of improvement Rob reported to me is likely.

    Yet, this is only one report. Fluoroquinolone reactions can be very different from person to person. Can one therapy treat them all successfully? Right now, there is no way to know.

    People interested in glutathione treatment should research the subject. There is plenty of information on the Internet. Books by David Perlmutter, M.D., discuss alternative methods for treating neurological conditions, and they contain plenty of information about glutathione and glutathione infusions.

    If there is a doctor near you who does glutathione infusions, you might consider making an appointment to discuss the treatment. Ask for contact information on people who have already taken the therapy. Gather all of the information you can.

    If you have experienced a reaction to a fluoroquinolone and are still suffering, glutathione infusions might be a treatment method worth investigating. You can ask Rob about his experience at .”

    I am suffering from a HORRIBLE Levaquin reaction as well and am looking into treatment options. It seems from this website, along with a doctor I have spoken with that Glutathione IVs are what is used to treat this.


    ^^ I have used this treatment before – and had the same reaction you had. I was later told from people at IN Home RX Pharmacy:
    (pharmacy that was recommended to me from the Whitaker Wellness Center – they make Glutathione for inhaled usage -(
    that there is a specific way to take inhaled Glutathione – you have to take it with Asthma medication for the first 10 days, otherwise it will cause wheezing, etc. I have asthma and I followed this protocol and had NO wheezing or anything at all – I used Xopenex with the inhaled glutathione vials for 10 days, then went off the asthma meds and my breathing respiratory issue VASTLY improved.

    I tried 3 Glutathione IVs for my reactions to Levaquin and felt MUCH better right after but am off all supplements right now for a number of other complicated health issues. I wish you all the best and think that the Glutathione IVs (and possibly the inhaled form used in the above mentioned way – but I would try the IVs first) could REALLY help you and other peoplesuffering from Levaquin damage!! Quinolones (family of antibiotics Levaquin is in) can cause oxidative stress – and Glutathione is one of the most potent antioxidants. It really did make a difference when I tried it, and am hoping to be able to try them again really soon. This muscle pain from Levaquin is really something too horrible to even describe!

    Best of luck to you!

    There may possibly be some thing incorrect with your site links. You should have somebody have a look at the web site.
