Urgent Warning On Antibiotic Cipro Slaped by FDA

Urgent Warning On Antibiotic Cipro Slaped by FDA

The makers of the antibiotic Cipro on Tuesday asked by The Food and Drug Administration to add a “black box warning” to their all products, seeing the risks of tendon ruptures and tendonitis. The injury could also leave patients incapacitated.

This warning was for Cipro and its generic Ciprofloxacin, along with antibiotics like the flouroquinolone class of drugs, & Levaquin, Avelox, Floxin,Proquin , Factive, XR, Noroxin, and generic Ofloxacin.

According to Health officials patients should immediately stop taking the medicines if they develop any tendon pain, swelling, or inflammation.

Cipro is normally used to treat bacterial infections in strep throat, urinary tract, and in case of skin infections. It is also used to treat anthrax.

Officials say although the side effects are not common but the risk increases in people over 60 and those taking corticosteroids. People with kidney, heart, or lung transplant also have an increased risk.
