Fluoroquinolones (FQs) are one of the most prescribed classes of antibiotics that include Levaquin, Avelox, Cipro, Noroxin, Floxin, Factive and generic versions of these same drugs. Experts say these drugs are overprescribed – 5 prescriptions are written for each 6 Americans annually – it is likely you have taken FLQs in your lifetime.


Studies link these antibiotics to a 2-fold increase of aortic aneurysms and aortic dissections.  In addition, the FDA may soon warn consumers that FQs carry the risk of peripheral neuropathy and a severe, disabling, multi system disability in previously healthy individuals described by and FDA Advisory Report as Fluoroquinolones-associated-disability (FQAD).


The manufacturers of these antibiotics did not properly warn of the risk of aortic aneurysms, aortic dissections, peripheral neuropathy or FQAD. Many previously healthy individuals believe antibiotic treatments led to life altering symptoms.


TruLaw is currently filing lawsuits on behalf of individuals who experienced an aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm or have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy.

TruLaw is also currently analyzing the possibility of filing cases on behalf of individuals who experienced “a constellation of symptoms” from antibiotics. FDA Advisory notes refer to this “constellation of symptoms as Fluoroquinolones-Associated Disability (FQAD) although many other terms have been used to describe individuals experiencing numerous side effects they believe were linked to their use of FQs.  According to the FDA, a diagnosis with this disability requires the following:

Previously Healthy

A previously healthy patient who was prescribed a course of FQs for the treatment of one of the following:

  • Uncomplicated sinusitis
  • Bronchitis
  • Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
  • Another illness that would likely resolve itself without antibiotics

Multiple Specific Symptoms

  • peripheral nervous system
