Did You Experience Adverse Side Effects With Antibiotics?

For more than 35 years, our attorneys at Herren & Adams LLP, have represented clients in products liability cases. In some instances, our clients received medication that caused their illness to worsen or serious side effects.

Many of our products liability cases surround Fluoroquinolones. What are they and what are the dangers they pose?

The Hidden Dangers Of Fluoroquinolones

Fluoroquinolones is a class of medications used to treat infections. These drugs called antibiotics or antibacterials are commonly used to treat upper respiratory and urinary tract infections.

Common medications in this class include:

  • Floxin
  • Factive
  • Levaquin
  • Ciprofloxacin
  • Avelox
  • Noroxin

These medications are known to cause serious injury to the nerves in the arms and legs. Patients who have taken these medications may notice pain, burring, tingling, numbness or weakness while taking the medication or weeks after taking the medication.

In fact, the FDA issued an alert and required all drug labels to describe this very serious issue.

Do Not Overlook These Side Effects

We want to talk to you if you have taken Ciprofloxacin, Avelox or Levaquin and developed:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Difficulty walking

If you believe you have experienced an adverse reaction from Fluoroquinolones in Kentucky, it can be a good idea to seek medical attention prior to an initial consultation with a lawyer.
