Lawyers for Cipro Peripheral Neuropathy Side Effects

The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential lawsuits for users of Cipro who have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, a painful and potentially permanent form of nerve damage associated with the popular antibiotic.

Lawsuits allege that the drug manufacturers have known for years that side effects of Cipro may cause peripheral neuropathy, yet information was withheld from consumers and the medical community about the risk that the popular antibiotic may cause painful and long-lasting nerve problems.

Financial compensation may be available through a Cipro lawsuit for individuals who have:

  • Diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Experienced Nerve Damage that Impairs Sensation, Movement or Other Aspects of Health
  • Required Medical Treatment for Persistent Pain, Numbness, Tingling, Numbness, Weakness or Sensitivity

The Cipro peripheral neuropathy lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing all potential injury cases under a contingency fee agreement, where there are never any out of pocket costs and we receive no fees or expenses unless a recovery is obtained.

Cipro Nerve Problems

Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is a widely used antibiotic, which was first introduced by Bayer in 1987. It is part of a class of antibiotics known as fluoroquionlones, which also includes Levaquin and Avelox.

Millions of Americans continue to be prescribed Cipro each year, and it is one of the best selling antibiotics on the market. Generic Cipro equivalents are now widely available.

Although information about the link between Cipro and peripheral neuropathy has been known for users, drug warnings provided with the antibiotic were inadequate and misleading for years, suggesting that problems with nerve damage were “rare” and failing to disclose that users may be left with long-term effects that impact them for the rest of their life.

Peripheral neuropathy from Cipro may cause damage to the peripheral nervous system, leaving users with persistent weakness, numbness and pain.

Some have even suggested side effects of Cipro may be responsible maladies suffered by veterans of the first Gulf War.

Cipro Peripheral Neuropathy Warnings

Following years of concerns that warnings about the risk of peripheral neuropathy from Cipro were inadequate, the FDA required the makers of all fluoroquinolone antibiotics to provide stronger information in August 2013.

The new Cipro warnings now stress the importance of recognizing signs and symptoms of nerve damage on Cipro, suggesting that doctors should consider switching patients to a different antibiotic if they experience problems. The new warnings also indicate that the nerve damage may arise at any time during treatment and could last for months or even years after the antibiotic is stopped.

Following the FDA’s announcement, many U.S. veterans have stepped forward to say that they believe that Gulf War Syndrome, which often involves nerve damage and periperal neuropathy, could be the result of large doses of Cipro they were given during the war to drive Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait.
