Levaquin (Levofloxacin) is an antibiotic medication that is most commonly used to treat lung, sinus, skin, and urinary tract infections caused by certain types of bacteria. Capretz & Associates is investigating claims of adverse reactions linked to Levaquin. Patients taking Levaquin have suffered from tendon pain, tendinitis, and tendon ruptures that may have been caused by the use of Levaquin.
Most of the tendon related injuries reported by Levaquin users have been associated with the Achilles tendon located in the back of the foot or with the shoulder rotator cuff tendons. These injuries can be extremely painful and in many cases require a surgical procedure to repair the torn or damaged tendon.
