Can quinolones antibiotics like Levaquin cause Peripheral Neuropathy? Is so, is the damage permanent? I was put on that poison because of a sinus infection and now I am dealing with these symptoms that make my life a living hell. Thank you.
Yes, fluoroquinolones (Levaquin, Cipro, Avelox, Tequin, etc...) can all cause neuropathy, along with a whole host of other problems (tendon/ligament/joint damage, anxiety, fatigue, depersonalization, brain fog, tinnitus, the list goes on and on...).

Permanent disability is possible, but mostly not likely...most people do recover from these adverse reactions, but depending on length of treatment and your body's sensitivity to them, it can take years to heal.

Side affects from this class of drugs can appear weeks, months, and in some cases even years after the last dose has been consumed.

I was given Levaquin for bronchitis and a sinus infection, and over a year later I'm still completely disabled due to it.
