Need an attorney to help with a Levaquin, Cipro or Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics Lawsuits?

The FDA has mandated that all drugs that contain fluoroquinolone should carry labels informing about side effects such as peripheral neuropathy. Levaquin, a popular antibiotic containing fluoroquinolone, has been associated with nerve damage that can happen within a few days of taking this drug.

If you or a family member has been affected by peripheral neuropathy, then you should consult a lawyer to find out if you’re eligible for compensation. It is possible that you were not warned about the side effects when you should have been. The correlation between peripheral neuropathy and fluoroquinolone has been known for more than ten years.

Levaquin, which can be administered orally or intravenously, is prescribed for infections of the skin, sinuses, kidneys, and bladder.

The FDA warning states, “In some patients, the symptoms had been ongoing for more than a year despite discontinuation of the fluoroquinolone. Several patients were continued on the fluoroquinolone drug despite the occurrence of neuropathic symptoms.”

Drugs in the fluoroquinolone class cause permanent nerve damage and the onset can appear very rapidly.

Peripheral neuropathy affects the limbs and in severe cases, arms or legs may have to be amputated. Symptoms of nerve damage include pain, burning, tingling, weakness, inability to register pain and changes in temperature, poor reflexes, muscle loss and paralysis.

There is a possibility that the condition may be reversed and the symptoms may go away. However, it is important to note that medication may also only stop the condition of the peripheral nerves from deteriorating.
