FDA Levaquin Warning: Serious Side Effects Could Become Permanent

In mid-May 2016, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a new safety warning about Levaquin (fluoroquinolone). The regulatory agency warned of serious side effects that could become permanent.

Levaquin side effects mentioned in the warning include:

  • Tendon, joint, and muscle pain
  • “Pins and needles” prickling sensation
  • Confusion
  • Hallucinations

According to the FDA, these side effects can occur simultaneously, and can become permanent.

With this new information, the FDA ordered that drug labels for Levaquin and other fluoroquinolone drugs be updated.
