FDA issues warning on Cipro, similar antibiotics

July 8, 2008
WASHINGTON (AP) Federal drug safety officials have imposed the government's most urgent warning on Cipro and similar antibiotics, citing risks that they can cause tendon ruptures, a serious injury that leaves some patients incapacitated.

The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday ordered makers of flouroquinolone drugs a potent class of antibiotics to add a 'black box' warning to their products, which include Cipro, Levaquin, Floxin and other medications.

Patients should immediately stop taking the medications if they develop any tendon pain, swelling or inflammation.

Good Lord!  Cipro is one of best antibiotics for ear infections and lung congestion.
