Questions about personal health should always be referred to a physician or other health care professional. 30, 2001 (Health Day News) -- The antibiotic Cipro is flying off pharmacy shelves, but even the government wants to put the brakes on the hottest drug on the market. Since the first outbreaks of anthrax were reported earlier this month, health officials had been prescribing Cipro (Bayer's brand name for ciprofloxacin) as a first-line treatment to treat or prevent the disease. Cipro is expensive and can lead to sometimes dangerous side effects. But as the anthrax scare has spread, tens of thousands of people are suddenly using it. Ivan Walks, Washington's public health director, said that postal workers who had been exposed to anthrax were being switched to doxycycline. Leading doctors, fearing that overuse will eventually make germs resistant to Cipro, now want to prescribe other antibiotics, notably doxycycline. Today, at the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, all federal offices were also switching from Cipro to doxycycline as a precautionary treatment because it poses a lower risk of side effects, the Associated Press reports. "There are compelling public health reasons to consider doxycycline as a better choice in the current situation when we have tens of thousands of people on [Cipro]," says Dr. 1Antimicrobial Stewardship Program, Department of Clinical Pharmacy Services and Division of Infectious Diseases, Maine Medical Center, Portland2Department of Medicine, College of Medicine, University of Vermont, Burlington . Infrequent toxicities associated with certain drugs and drug classes have recently gained much attention from different health-care perspectives. To protect the patient, continued surveillance of safety and tolerability data is essential. Data from preclinical testing, phase 1–3 trials, and postmarketing surveillance may be used to objectively assess the risks associated with a specific drug or family of compounds. This review summarizes safety and tolerability data for the quinolones.. The most common adverse events associated with the quinolone class involve the gastrointestinal tract (nausea and diarrhea) and central nervous system (CNS) (headache and dizziness). These adverse events are usually mild and do not require discontinuation of therapy.

    [Posted 12/20/2018]AUDIENCE: Health Professional, Infectious Disease, Cardiology, Patient ISSUE: FDA review found that fluoroquinolone antibiotics can increase the occurrence of rare but serious events of ruptures or tears in the main artery of the body, called the aorta. These tears, called aortic dissections, or ruptures of an aortic aneurysm can lead to dangerous bleeding or even death. They can occur with fluoroquinolones for systemic use given by mouth or through an injection. BACKGROUND: Fluoroquinolone antibiotics are approved to treat certain bacterial infections and have been used for more than 30 years. They work by killing or stopping the growth of bacteria that can cause illness. Without treatment, some infections can spread and lead to serious health problems (see List of Currently Available FDA-Approved Systemic Fluoroquinolones, available at RECOMMENDATION: Healthcare professionals should: Taking ciprofloxacin increases the risk that you will develop tendinitis (swelling of a fibrous tissue that connects a bone to a muscle) or have a tendon rupture (tearing of a fibrous tissue that connects a bone to a muscle) during your treatment or for up to several months afterward. Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic that belongs to the family of medications known as quinolones. It is used to treat infections caused by certain bacteria. It is most commonly used to treat infections of the skin, sinuses, bone, lung, abdomen, kidney, prostate, and bladder. It can also be used to treat some sexually transmitted infections (STIs), some forms of infectious diarrhea, and typhoid fever.
