Certain antibiotics can cause fatal heart damage: US FDA

Dec 26, 2018 17:50 IST

Certain antibiotics can cause fatal heart damage, according to the US Food and Drug Administration. Antibiotics that are used to treat UTI and upper respiratory infections can lead to ruptures in the main artery of the body. These antibiotics are called Fluoroquinolones. These medicines must not be used in patients who are already at risk, like the ones with genetic disorders. The new risk guidelines will be added to medicine labels, stated FDA.
