Nerve Damage Side Effects of Levaquin, Cipro & Avelox

Fluoroquinolone drugs like Levaquin, Cipro and Avelox are some of the most widely-used antibiotics in the United States, commonly prescribed to treat bacterial infections of the skin, sinuses, kidneys, lungs or stomach. However, a number of studies published in recent years have suggested that patients who use Levaquin or similar antibiotic drugs may be at risk for severe nerve damage called peripheral neuropathy. The first warning about the potential link between fluoroquinolone drugs and nerve damage was issued by the FDA in 2004, when the agency warned consumers that the use of Levaquin may result in symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, including “pain, burning, tingling, numbness, and/or weakness or other alterations of sensation including light touch, pain, temperature, position sense, and vibratory sensation.”

In August 2013, the FDA decided to update its warning about the potential link between fluoroquinolone antibiotics and nerve damage, indicating that some patients may experience peripheral neuropathy within days of taking Levaquin and similar drugs, often leading to chronic pain and permanent disability. The following year, a study was published in the journal Neurology, and researchers indicated that patients taking drugs from the fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics, like Levaquin, Cipro and Avelox, had double the risk of suffering side effects of peripheral neuropathy, including pain, numbness, weakness, or a sensation of tickling, tingling, prickling or burning of the skin.
