Levaquin, Avelox, and CiproHave you suffered from serious nerve damage after taking one of these antibiotics?
Levaquin and Avelox Nerve Injuries
Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, including Levaquin, Avelox, and Cipro, have experienced widespread use for a variety of common bacterial infections, including lung and urinary tract infections. Unfortunately, these drugs are not as safe as they may seem and carry with their use serious and damaging side-effects.
In addition to tendon damage, the use of these fluoroquinolone drugs can lead to severe nerve damage known as peripheral neuropathy. In August of 2013, the FDA recognized that drug companies’ warnings regarding nerve damage were “inadequate” and that patients and doctors alike needed more information due to the severity and potential permanence of these injuries.
Nidel Law, P.L.L.C., in conjunction with other fluoroquinolone injury law firms, is representing victims of these drugs that have suffered from long-term peripheral nerve damage, including tingling, loss of sensation, and pain in the extremities.
