Levaquin May Cause Severe Side Effects

Levaquin is a hot topic right now concerning extreme negative side effects. Levaquin is a prescription drug used to treat bacterial infections. Problems began arising not long after patients began using Levaquin. Some of the severe side effects that were reported include liver failure and tendon damage.

It is interesting today how many side effects are associated with any prescription drug. It’s almost impossible to watch television for any length of time and not come across several ads for the new prescription medicine. Listing the ill side effects takes almost as much time in these ads as the actual description of the drug does.

Granted, there’s always the risk of side effects when taking medicine but where’s the line between necessary side effect and a mistake? Many people are asking similar questions concerning Levaquin. In this article, we will briefly look at what Levaquin is and what it does, including the desired side effects and the severe negative side effects.


Levaquin is an antibiotic used for adults. Specifically, it is used to treat lung, sinus, skin, and urinary tract infections when those infections result from certain bacteria.

Levaquin was created by the drug company Johnson & Johnson. It was approved for use in the U.S. by the FDA.

Severe Side Effects

After several filed complaints of severe and traumatic side effects, the FDA called for a boxed warning on Levaquin. These side effects include liver failure as well as tendon damage.
