Fluoroquinolone use associated with increased risk for carpal tunnel syndrome

May 9, 2017

Fluoroquinolone use was linked with an increased risk for carpal tunnel syndrome, according to researchers in Canada.

“In 2013, the FDA issued a label requirement of association between use of fluoroquinolones and neurologic conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, and musculoskeletal conditions such as tendinopathies,” Jasmine Z. Cheng, MD, of the faculty of medicine at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, and colleagues wrote. “Given that fluoroquinolones are widely prescribed in North America, a potential risk of these drugs inducing carpal tunnel syndrome should be examined in a large epidemiologic study.”
