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,

Lainey

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.
