An Avelox Eye Injury Lawyer In Miami Who Guards the Rights of Clients

Avelox (monifloxacin hydrochloride) is an antibiotic used by people with bacterial infections such as sinusitis, chronic bronchitis, and pneumonia. But sometimes Avelox can cause a number of dangerous, debilitating, and life-threatening side effects, including eye injuries. Call the Law Office of Jeffrey D. DeCarlo, P.A. today to get in touch with an experienced dangerous drug attorney who can uncover the truth and fight for the compensation you deserve for your injuries. If you or a loved one suffered serious eye injuries after taking Avelox, we want to hear from you and discuss your legal options, which may include filing an Avelox eye injury lawsuit.

Avelox side effects – what consumers need to know

Case reports and other studies have shown that users of Avelox are at increased risk of suffering a number of serious side effects that can cause permanent damage to vision, liver disorders, and muscle and tendon injuries. For those who are older than 60 who have undergone kidney, heart and lung transplants, the risk of Avelox side effects is more pronounced. A list of potentially harmful Avelox side effects includes:

  • Uveitis, a potentially irreversible eye injury
  • Tendon swelling and tendon rupture
  • Stevens-Johnson Syndrome
  • Liver damage

Studies have indicated that in some cases, such as eye injuries, symptoms can appear within two weeks of using Avelox. On the other hand, muscle and tendon injuries to the heel, shoulder, bicep, thumb, or hand could appear months after taking the medication. Because of the risk of tendon swelling and ruptures, the Food and Drug Administration in 2008 issued a “black box” warning (the FDA’s strongest) for Avelox.
