FDA warns against combining certain perscription drugs

Posted on Tuesday, August 9th, 2011 at 2:03 pm    

The US Food and Drug Administration recently reported that individuals taking methylene blue dye and the antibiotic linezolid should not be taken with serotonergic drugs. Taking them together can result in a serious drug interaction that can lead to serotonin syndrome.

Serotonin syndrome can lead to death, and some deaths have been reported with interactions with linezolid. Symptoms of serotonin syndrome include confusion, hyperactivity, memory problems,
muscle twitching, excessive sweating, shivering or shakin, diarrhea,
trouble with coordination, and fever. Reported adverse reactions have included lethargy, delirium, agitation, aggression,
coma, myoclonus,
expressive aphasia, hypertonia, and seizures.

If you or someone you love has been harmed by the actions of a negligent
medical professional you may be entitled to financial compensation for
your suffering. Contact the Cedar Rapids drug interactions and complications attorneys of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424
