Drug Alert: Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics

Several fluoroquinolone antibiotics – including Avelox, Cipro, and Levaquin – are now at the center of several lawsuits after being linked to permanent and adverse side effects.

Studies have connected the use of these drugs to peripheral neuropathy, or permanent nerve damage. Other complications include aortic dissection – which can lead to more serious issues like stroke, heart attack, or paralysis – and aortic aneurysm, which can be a silent killer.

Lawsuits allege that the drug manufacturers knew about and concealed the risk of irreversible nerve damage. Plaintiffs claim that they took these powerful antibiotics for conditions like sinus infections that could have been treated with by other, more suitable types of antibiotics.
