Common Types of Harmful Side Effects

Although there are various side effects associated with Levaquin, Avelox, and Cipro, two of the most common include the following:

Aortic dissection: This occurs when the aorta walls break down, which allows blood to seep into tissue layers. This occurrence can lead a person to suffer from:

  • A heart attack
  • A stroke
  • Paralysis

Aortic aneurysm: This occurs when enlargement or bulging occurs in the aorta. This occurrence can cause the following:

  • Excruciating pain
  • Loss of consciousness
  • In many cases, fatality

In addition, many medical studies and patients have stated that permanent nerve damage, known as peripheral neuropathy, has also been linked to the use of such drugs. According to various forms of evidence, drug manufacturers were made aware of these side effects as early as 1996 but have continued to conceal such risks.
