Care must always be taken when buying medicines. In fact, these are elements that certainly help us to live. They take care of our health and give us a hand, on several occasions, to overcome difficult times. At the same time, however, drugs have their contraindications. And they can be harmful if not used in the right way. And if they were taken without precautions, well, the consequences could be pretty serious. In fact, dangerous side effects have been discovered which have prompted the following antibiotics to be withdrawn from the market. Here are which ones you need to watch out for.
What drugs are withdrawn
IS AIFA (Italian Medicines Agency), to have created a specific guide. The Agency has authorized the withdrawal from the market of some drugs in particular. Above all, some fluoroquinolones and quinolones. Furthermore, for drugs belonging to the same class, such as levofloxacin or ciprofloxacin, there are restrictions. These have been proposed by the European Committee of Medicinal Products for Human Use.
As we know, these are antibiotics mostly used in the treatment of the respiratory and urinary tract. And it seems that the active ingredients can cause very serious damage to those who take them. The risk, indeed, is that the consequences are permanent.
AIFA’s advice, especially to doctors, is to prescribe those not withdrawn from the market only for really serious infections. And, above all, for those that cannot be cured in any way with other antibiotics.
What are the consequences?
The consequences mainly concern the nervous system, bones and muscles. And it’s about taking risks that could be disabling. Even for life. For this reason, AIFA’s recommendations, supported by various bodies, must be strongly taken into consideration. Therefore, for the antibiotics that are part of these families, and that have remained on the market, it will be right to follow the rules. Such as, for example, not using them for infections that are not serious. And, above all, always read the leaflet and consult your doctor. Indeed, the dangerous side effects have prompted the following antibiotics to be withdrawn from the market. Here are which ones you need to watch out for and what could happen.
Just pay a little attention and our health will be safe!
