Active substances: Norfloxacin
However, the Fluoroquinolones are licensed to treat lower respiratory infections in children with cystic fibrosis in the UK. Adverse effects In general, fluoroquinolones are well tolerated, with most side-effects being mild to moderate.
The overall rate of adverse events in patients treated with fluoroquinolones is roughly similar to that seen in patients treated with other antibiotic classes. Centers for Disease Control study found patients treated with fluoroquinolones experienced adverse events severe enough to lead to an emergency department visit more frequently than those treated with cephalosporins or macrolides, but less frequently than those treated with penicillins, clindamycin, sulfonamides, or vancomycin.
Among these, tendon problems and exacerbation of the symptoms of the neurological disorder myasthenia gravis are the subject of "black box" warnings in the United States.
Younger people typically experience good recovery, but permanent disability is possible, and is more likely in older patients. Simultaneous use of corticosteroids is present in almost one-third of quinolone-associated tendon rupture.
Fluoroquinoline treatment is associated with risk that is similar to or less than that associated with broad spectrum cephalosporins. Nanomaterials for removal of toxic elements from water. Nanomaterials and water purification: opportunities and challenges.
