Levaquin is and antibiotic medication that was recently
given a “black box” warning from the FDA. Levaquin is in a class of antibiotic
medications known as fluoroquinolones that are used to treat certain types of
infections. I have been searching the internet and the blogosphere and have
heard hundreds of horror stories of people who have taken the Levaquin, or the
similar drug Cipro, and will never be same because it.
It is astonishing to read the claims made by victims of
these dangerous medications. The “black box” warning recently issued is long
overdue if the stories posted on forums and around the blogospere are any indication as to
the dangers that can be attributed to these drugs.
While this new warning cannot spare those who have already
suffer such debilitating injuries as ruptured Achilles tendons and other severely painful and destructive adverse reactions as a result being prescribed Levaquin and Cipro,
hopefully it will help reduce the number of victims that will have to suffer
from these injuries in the future.
If you have suffered an injury related to the Levaquin or
Cipro please post your comments here. Together we can spread the word about the
dangers of these drugs and God willing spare others from the pain and agony
that thousands have already been forced to endure.
