Warning: Common Antibiotics Linked to Nerve Damage

Six fluoroquinolone antibiotics have received a heightened warning about their causing a serious risk for permanent nerve injury in patients by the U.S. Federal Food and Drug Administration. Cipro (Ciprofloxacin), Avelox (Moxifloxacin), Levaquin (Levofloxacin), Factive (Gemifloxacin), Noroxin (Norfloxacin) and Floxin (Ofloxacin) are commonly prescribed antibiotics, with 23 million patients receiving these fluoroquinone antibiotics in 2011 alone. The risk of permanent peripheral nerve injury has been shown to be caused by the injectable and oral routes of administration, but has not been seen with the topical drop preparations used for infections in the eyes and ears.
