Topic: FDA URGENT WARNING 8 July,08
FDA released an urgent warning on Fluoroquinolone Antimicrobial Drugs. Antibiotics like cipro, levaquin, floxins an others. Patient should stop taking immediately if any tendon pain,swelling or inflamation. Could cause tendon ruptures.
I bring this to everyoness attention as many cc patients get prescribed antibiotics for infections or fevers. You may want to be cautious and discuss with doctor the warning which is being considered for black box labeling as well. Maybe an alternative type antibiotic could be used.
I found this out only because my future son-in law is a Lab Tech and gets all these urgent fda warnings.
