Why people take Fluoroquinolone antibiotics?

Over the years, doctors have prescribed fluoroquinolone antibiotics to treat a variety of bacterial infections. These infections may cause pneumonia, urinary tract infections, cellulitis, gastroenteritis, bone and joint infections, bronchitis, certain sexually transmitted infections, and sinusitis. Alternative antibiotics that do not cause the severe and potentially fatal aortic dissection or aneurysm effects for which people are at potential increased risk with fluoroquinolone use exist.

Dangerous Drugs

When you take an antibiotic for an infection, you may be unaware of possible side effects.

Recent studies have suggested that potential life-threatening side effects may exist from taking a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, such as Cipro, Levaquin or Avelox.

You should seek possible compensation if you have taken an antibiotic and been hospitalized for:

Aortic dissection (aortic tear), which can lead to an aortic rupture and hemorrhage
Aortic aneurysm (aortic stretching, ballooning or bulging), which can lead to aortic rupture and hemorrhage

In some cases, you may have lost a loved one who suffered from these side effects. You, as a family member, may deserve compensation for the loss of your loved one.
