Cleveland Levaquin Side Effects Attorneys

Ohio Antibiotic Medication Tendon Rupture Lawsuit

Levaquin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic product manufactured by Johnson & Johnson and Ortho-McNeil, used primarily in the treatment of certain types of bacterial infections, including pneumonia, bronchitis, urinary tract, kidney and prostate infections. After receiving several reports of tendon ruptures and skin disorders as dangerous side effects of taking Levaquin, the FDA demanded that product packaging contain a special 'black box' warning of dangerous side effects. In recent years, there have been several successful national litigation cases on behalf of plaintiffs who have suffered torn Achilles tendons or developed Stevens-Johnson syndrome, affecting the skin. The dangerous side effects are often painful and can result in a permanent medical problem or disability.

In addition to tendon ruptures and Sevens-Johnson syndrome, other dangerous side effects associated with Levaquin include:

  • Disorders of the central nervous system, nerve damage
  • Allergic reactions, even after just one dose
  • Infection of the intestine, GI track disorders
  • Irregular heart rhythms
  • Liver damage
  • Change in blood sugar levels
