Levaquin and Cipro Add Increased Warnings
This Michael Brady Lynch, lead trial attorney for The Michael Brady Lynch Firm.
The safety profile of the class of drugs which include Levaquin, Cipro, Avelox, Noroxin, Floxin and Factive just keeps getting worse.
Today the FDA has required the drug labels and Medication Guides for all fluoroquinolone antibacterial drugs be updated to better describe the serious side effect of peripheral neuropathy. This serious nerve damage potentially caused by fluoroquinolones may occur soon after these drugs are taken and may be permanent.
The risk of peripheral neuropathy occurs only with fluoroquinolones that are taken by mouth or by injection. It is important to note that the topical formulations of fluoroquinolones, applied to the ears or eyes, are not known to be associated with this risk.
