Fluoroquinolone drugs are a synthetic class of antibacterial drugs, or antibiotics, that were discovered over 50 years ago. For decades, they have been used to fight various bacterial infections and illnesses. However, recently the safety of this class of drugs has been called into question after numerous medical studies have found serious risks associated with these drugs.
What Brands Contain Fluoroquinolones?
Fluoroquinolone drugs are produced and sold as liquids, tablets and gels by a prescription from a doctor. The most common brand names of these drugs found on the market are:
- Cipro (ciprofloxacin)
- Factive (gemifloxacin)
- Floxin (oflocaxin)
- Avelox (moxifloxacin)
- Levaquin (levoflaxin)
- Noroxin (norfloxacin)
These brands have been linked in medical studies to an increased risk of developing peripheral neuropathy. This painful condition occurs when nerves that carry messages to the brain and spinal cord from the rest of the body become damaged or diseased. This can interrupt communication between the brain and the rest of the body and can impair muscular movement. Additionally, sensations in the arms and legs can be impaired, and pain can occur. Many patients do not respond well to treatment and live in pain and discomfort for many years.
