Avelox Side Effects
Can be Permanently Disabling

Avelox and Avelox Side Effects

If you do not know what Avelox is, then you do not know about the very serious Avelox Side Effects that you could experience, and that can and have caused permanent disabling problems for a small percentage of users.

Avelox, also called Moxifloxacin, is an antibiotic that is in the family of Fluoroquinolone and Quinolone Antibiotics along with:

    1. Ciprofloxacin(Cipro)
    2. Levaquin (Levofloxacin)
    3. Ofloxacin
    4. And other drugs that end in 'floxin' or 'floxacin'

This drug may be given by pill, or you might have received it in the hospital by the intravenous route directly into your veins if you were very sick in the hospital. It is used for serious infections such as:

  • Pneumonia
  • H Pylori Bacteria
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Tuberculosis
  • MRSA Skin Infections
  • Surgical Infections

and many other infections depending upon the offending bacteria causing the problem. While the Quinolone Antibiotics and drugs such as Moxifloxacin may be effective and necessary in the case of life threatening infections, there is a dark side to Avelox side effects. This drug has some seriously problematic and potentially permanently disabling side effects...


Avelox Side Effects

The Common Side Effects of Avelox are the same as most other Antibiotic Side Effects. Problems such as:

Are easily avoided by making sure to take a high quality probiotic such as Prescript Assist Probiotics during and after you are taking the antibiotic therapy. It's not the common side effects that are worrisome, however, it is the uncommon side effects that are incredibly worrisome.


Black Box Warning for Avelox Side Effects

A 'Black Box Warning' for any drug is the STRONGEST warning that can be given by the FDA for letting health care practitioners and the public know about the dangers of a particular drug. Avelox, as do ALL of the Quinolone Antibiotics, DOES have a black box warning for the problem of tendon rupture in a small amount of people. While this problem, known as Cipro Tendonitis or Levaquin Tendonitis, no matter which Quinolone antibiotic caused it, is considered 'rare', when millions of prescriptions for Quinolone Antibiotics are being written every year, even if less than 1/2 of 1% of people are affected (usually considered a 'low' rate of problems), this could lead to tens of thousands of cases of Levaquin Tendonitis every year. And with the drug still being on the market this means that EACH year tens of thousands MORE people are being affected every year.


Levaquin Tendonitis and
Tendon Rupture

achilles tendon rupture is a side effect of avelox, cipro, and levaquin
What exactly IS Levaquin Tendonitis? It is one of the Avelox Side Effects, and it causes direct damage to the cells and the DNA of tendons, cartilage and other connective tissue of the body. This Levaquin Tendon Damage can cause anything from no symptoms at all to slight pain that goes away by itself in a short time - to complete RUPTURE of the tendon requiring surgery to repair.

Yes, I said Tendon Rupture- from an Antibiotic!!

While there ARE some measurable 'risk factors' that can contribute to the problem, it's rare that these risk factors are taken into consideration before doctors prescribe this drug. And in the case of one risk factor for tendonitis and tendon rupture, the use of Avelox or Levaquin and Prednisone, these drugs that are incredibly damaging when given together are ACTIVELY given together as a treatment for respiratory problems! Yipes! That is a BIG slip up that is done unknowingly all of the time by many doctors. In in any case there have been thousands who have experienced tendon rupture who didn't have any of these obvious risk factors before experiencing these severe Avelox side effects and becoming disabled.


Disabling Levaquin Toxicity
is Another Problem

Unfortunately, tendon damage and rupture are not the ONLY Avelox side effect that can be painful, uncomfortable and disabling- sometimes for life. A condition that is known as 'Levaquin Toxicity' by those who suffer from it causes an entire spectrum of problems including:

  • Neurologic symptoms such as difficulty walking, slurred speech, numbness and pain to the feet
  • Circulation Problems such as coldness and loss of sensation to hands and feet
  • Vision and hearing loss
  • Pain in: muscles, joints, tendons or just all over body pain
  • Mood problems like anxiety, depression, panic attacks and insomnia

To Cipro Tendonitis?

And the symptoms go on and on. Even worse, this 'syndrome' is not even recognized as having been caused by the Quinolone Antibiotics. Therefore the entire medical profession denies that this problem exists while tens of thousands suffer, get told that it is in their head or get diagnosed with problems like 'Fibromyalgia' and 'Chronic Fatigue Syndrome' that doctors have no real tests for and that they are equally ineffective at helping people suffering from these.


Low Risk for Your DOCTOR!

Doctors, the FDA and researchers consistently state that there is a low risk of Avelox Side Effects. While this might be true for THEM, it seems like a lot higher risk when it's YOU you might have to be the one to live with the long-term Side Effects. To further this problem, there is just no way to know ahead of time exactly WHO is going to be the 'Rare' person to experience these problems with Avelox and the other Quinolone antibiotics. With less than 1% of people who become disabled, chances are that it's not going to happen to you. But unlike in Las Vegas, if you lose -you lose a LOT more than your money. Only YOU can decide if the risk is worth it and you can only make a real decision if you have the facts. There are many suffering from the side effects of Moxifloxacin, Levaquin and Cipro who now say, "If I had known that there was even a possibility of this happening, I would have never taken that drug." Well, I'm here to inform you that there IS a possibility- however remote.
