Levaquin, Avelox, and Cipro are antibiotics that have been widely prescribed for years. In 2011, 23 million people were written a prescription for one of these drugs. Unfortunately, they have the potential to cause harm to those who take it.
- In 2001, doctors were able to link Peripheral Neuropathy (which results in weakness, numbness, and pain usually in your feet and hands) to Levaquin, Avelox, and Cipro use.
- In 2004, warnings were added to drug labels.
- In 2013 the FDA released a safety communication requiring a label change to better describe the serious side effects of Peripheral Neuropathy.
Despite the warnings, many doctors were unaware of the dangers of Levaquin, Avelox, and Cipro. In fact, many doctors misdiagnosed those suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy, and diagnosed clients with fibromyalgia instead. However, these drugs have been shown to cause debilitating injuries, and they can cause Peripheral Neuropathy.
