Turbulent History of Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics

Turbulent History of Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics

Fluoroquinolone antibiotics (Avelox, Cipro and Levaquin) have had an turbulent history. These antibiotics have been associated with increased risk of severe permanent cartilage, tendon and muscle injury. More recently, they have been associated with peripheral nerve injury. See FDA Announcement ….. https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm513183.htm that is now requiring an increased warning, a black box warning which is the highest warning that the FDA can require on drug labeling. The peripheral nerves are those in the hands, arms, feet and legs. The peripheral nerves extend from the central nervous system’s spinal cord and carry both sensory and motor signals to and from the brain. These injuries can be terribly painful and debilitating.
