adverse drug reactions
Adverse drug reactions are on people's minds these days.Partly due to all the news coverage of the article in JAMA...thetwo new books, Prescription for Disaster and Bitter Pills...and theDateline NBC report on Floxin.
The TV program spotlights two patients who took one or twoFloxin (ofloxacin) tablets and ended up with severe CNS effects...seizures...distorted sight...balance problems...depression.
This isn't new. It's in the package insert. All thequinolones can have CNS effects...some more than others.
