This new box warning via FDA is something i've been aware of for some time in patients using ciprofloxaxin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>levaquin</span>
(levofloxacin), Moxifloxacin (Avelox), ofloxacin (floxin), gatifloxacin (tequin), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>
i'm glad it'll be highlighted on labeling, showing it's increasing incidence:
risk of tendinitis and
tendon rupture is further increased in those over age 60, in kidney, heart, and
lung transplant recipients, and
with use of concomitant steroid therapy.
