Fluoroquinolone toxicity warning

 •  • by Paul Ingraham

Weekly nuggets of pain science news and insight, usually 100-300 words, with the occasional longer post. The blog is the “director’s commentary” on the core content of PainScience.com: a library of major articles and books about common painful problems and popular treatments. See the blog archives or updates for the whole site.

FDA warning about the toxicity of fluoroquinolone antibiotics:

… associated with disabling and potentially permanent serious side effects … can involve the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves & CNS.

How many people have been affected by this without realizing the source? Yet another surprising cause of pain. I have an unpleasant hunch we’ll be hearing more about fluoroquinolone toxicity.
