While widely prescribed, fluoroquinolones have been associated with a large number of adverse events and are the focus of multiple lawsuits against providers.
Currently there are FDA warnings regarding quinolone use and the risk of tendinitis, tendon rupture and peripheral neuropathy. More recently studies have shown an increased risk of aortic dissection and aneurysm in patients who are taking quinolones. Providers need to consider and document these potential risks when using these medications.
