new warning that quinolone antibiotics can cause inflamed or ruptured tendons

The FDA is requiring a new warning that quinolone antibiotics can cause inflamed or ruptured tendons...usually in the heel, shoulder, or hand.

This is the same problem we alerted you to last year.

New cautions about this will show up in package inserts for ciprofloxacin (Cipro)...norfloxacin (Noroxin)...ofloxacin (Floxin) and other quinolones.
