Who should avoid Tequin®?
You should not take Tequin® if:
- You are allergic to any of the group of antibiotics known as "quinolones," such as Cipro (ciprofloxacin) or Levaquin (levofloxacin).
- You have problems with your heart rhythm, particularly with prolongation of the interval between the Q wave and the end of the T wave in the heart's electrical cycle (Long QT Interval Syndrome), a rare heart problem that may cause fainting or irregular heartbeat. If any of your family members have this condition, or have experienced an abnormal electrocardiogram, you should inform your physician.
- You have hypokalemia, a condition involving abnormally low levels of potassium in the blood. Hypokalemia is frequently triggered by diuretics such as furosemide and hydrochlorothiazide.
