Brent Coon and Associates are now investigating Levaquin Lawsuits after there have been reports of serious side effects associated with the drug. The most serious of the Levaquin side effects is permanent nerve damage or peripheral neuropathy. There have been reports of Levaquin lawsuit being filed claiming that manufacture did not properly warn doctors and patients of possibility of developing permanent nerve damage because of Levaquin. BCA is not filing a Levaquin class action lawsuit, instead the Levaquin lawsuits will be filed individually. Levaquin is an antibiotic medication and is made by Johnson and Johnson and it listed as a fluoroquinolone. There was a study in 2001 that linked fluoroquinolone with 45 cases of nerve damage with 33 of them linked to Levaquin. The study also indicates that the nerve damage was developed with in a week of taking Levaquin. When that study was released there were warnings included on Levaquin, but did not specifically state the risks of permanent nerve damage. The FDA finally required Levaquin to include warning of nerve damage over 10 years later in August of 2013. You can read the Levaquin FDA Warning Here.
In part the FDA Levaquin warning reads: “In some patients the symptoms had been ongoing for more than a year despite discontinuation of the fluoroquinolone. Several patients were continued on the fluoroquinolone drug despite the occurrence of neuropathic symptoms.”
Another Levaquin study was published in Neurology which claims that there were over 6,000 cases where these type of drugs caused nerve damaged between 2001 and 2011. The other side effects associated with Levaquin include:
