Anyone ever take Levaquin antibiotic?

I was prescribed Levaquin for an ear infection recently, took it for 2 days and suffered from insomnia, paranoia and anxiety. I have no history of mental illness but this drug could have possibly put me over the edge. I stayed up all night thinking someone was going to break into my house and harm my children. ... show more I was prescribed Levaquin for an ear infection recently, took it for 2 days and suffered from insomnia, paranoia and anxiety.

Anyone else ever take this drug? How is something like this an antibiotic?
Update: I did stop taking it and he put me on Bactrim which now I am fine- sleeping like a rock without my mind racing. I am also allergic to alot of antibiotics so I can believe if it was an allergic reaction. The Doctor also put me on prednisone- BUT- I started the pred. 2 days after the antibiotic- so it never mixed... show more I did stop taking it and he put me on Bactrim which now I am fine- sleeping like a rock without my mind racing.
