I came across this info this evening.   Evidently fluoroquinolones should not be prescribed to treat  bronchitis, sinus infections and UTIs

Tendons, muscles, joints, nerves and central nervous system can be affected.

I have no doubt that many people have experienced injuries side affects from Levaquin and Cipro. So they should not be the first line of defense against a bacterial infection. That being said, I have taken both drugs many, many times for a sinus infection when another antibiotics did not work. No tendon damage resulted. It comes down to what bacterial strain is living up in your sinuses; fluoroquinolones can kill some bugs that Augmentin cannot.

As for UTIs -- I work with elderly women, who are suspectible to UTIs, and the docs always prescribe Cipro. So far, none have experienced side effects. I guess you have to weigh the benefits vs the risks.
