Quinolones are a class of antibiotics that can be used for various infections. I discuss the pharmacology, adverse effects, drug interactions and other items on this podcast episode.
On this episode, I talk about the warnings associated with quinolones.
Quinolone use has subsided over time, not due to the fact that they are ineffective, but to rising concerns and warnings about adverse effects.
Quinolones can interact with quite a few medications. I've seen a case of amiodarone and levofloxacin contributing to QTc prolongation which I discuss on this episode.
It is critical to remember the binding interactions associated with quinolones as these can potentially lead to treatment failure.
