What are Fluroquinolone Antibiotics?
Levaquin, Avelox and Cipro are members of a controversial class of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones. In recent years, these drugs have been widely used to treat a number of common and uncomplicated infections. However, the risks associated with the antibiotics outweigh the potential benefits over other treatment alternatives.
Side effects of Levaquin, Avelox and other fluoroquinolones have been linked to severe and potentially life-threatening injuries, including a risk of permanent nerve damage, as well as aortic aneurysms and aortic dissections.
It appears that the drug makers placed their desire for profits before the safety of consumers by failing to adequately warn consumers and the medical community about the potential risks. As a result financial compensation may be available through a Levaquin lawsuit, Avelox lawsuit or Cipro lawsuit.
Antibiotic Injury Risks
An aortic aneurysm occurs when the walls of the artery weaken, resulting in an abnormal bulge as the pressure in the aorta causes the weakened area to balloon outward. This can result in severe pain, internal injuries, bleeding and death.
An aortic dissection is similar to an aortic aneurysms, except they occur between the layers of the aorta itself. Unlike aortic aneurysms, which may not cause serious problems when small, aortic dissections can quickly result in a fatal rupture.
Peripheral Neuropathy from fluoroquinolone antibiotics involves damage to the peripheral nervous system. It can cause weakness, numbness and pain. It usually first occurs as numbness or pain in the hands and feet, but often continues to move up the limbs.
