Peripheral Neuropathy From Fluoroquinolone Lawsuits
Peripheral neuropathy lawsuits can be filed against drug makers if you or a loved one has suffered this complication due to the use of a fluoroquinolone. Medical studies dating back to 2004 have identified a link between these types of antibiotic medication and peripheral neuropathy.
The FDA first issued a warning in August 2013 about the risk of peripheral neuropathy posed by fluoroquinolone drugs.
Peripheral neuropathy consists of damaged nerves throughout the body. Cases of this condition can range from mild to severe. Symptoms usually begin within a few days of taking fluoroquinolones.
These symptoms include:
- Tingling in hands or feet
- Burning and pain
- Inability to walk
Nerves in the hands and feet tend to be the first affected by numbness and tingling. Peripheral neuropathy can arise at any time while taking fluoroquinolones, including immediately after you start taking them, and can persist for months or years after. The condition can even become permanent.
Over 20 million patients have been prescribed fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Lawsuits are being filed against the drug producers for failure to distribute a safe and reliable product to the market.
