    Hi Precious393,

    I am sorry you have a headache and hope you found some relief. For future reference you can call your local pharmacy and check if there is a drug interaction with BC powder. Also, WebMD has some information about Levaquin that might be useful.

    Let us know if you found help. :)

    Take care,

    Timothy Collins, MD responded:
    Taking Naproxen (Aleve) would be a better choice---it doesn't wear off as quickly as BC powders. The only problem with BC and Levequin may be the caffeine, but the Aspirin and tylenol would be OK.
