What is Cipro?

Cipro (cipprofloxacin) is an antibiotic in the fluoroquinolone class. These drugs treat a wide range of infections by interfering with DNA inside bacterial cells. Unfortunately, they can also have harmful side effects in the human body. Cipro carries a Black Box warning about tendonitis and tendon ruptures. It has also been linked to severe allergic reactions and permanent nerve damage.

Cipro and Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS)

The Prescribing Information for Cipro warns that it has been associated with rare but deadly cases of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN). These allergic reactions can occur after a single dose of Cipro. They cause a painful skin rash and blisters. The top layer of skin dies and peels off, leaving the body vulnerable to infections. SJS and TEN are often deadly. For survivors, complications like blindness, organ damage, and disfigurement are very common.

Cipro and Nerve Damage

One of the most severe and debilitating side effects of Cipro is peripheral neuropathy. This disease is a type of nerve damage that primarily affects the arms and legs. It may cause problems feeling temperatures or textures (described like wearing a thin sock or glove). The onset of symptoms often occurs within a few days, but they may last for months, years, or permanently.

The FDA added peripheral neuropathy to the label on Cipro in 2004. Unfortunately, reports of peripheral neuropathy continued to occur, including in patients who were not switched to another antibiotic after they developed symptoms. In 2013, the FDA published another Safety Communication and emphasized that nerve damage can occur very quickly and cause permanent symptoms.

Cipro Class Action Lawsuit

Cipro is associated with some extremely serious and disabling side effects. Thousands of people have been injured by Cipro, but our attorneys are not filing a Cipro class action. Instead, we are focusing on filing individual lawsuits for people with the most serious injuries.
