Quixin Side Effects

Clinical studies have shown that some of the most commonly reported side effects of Quixin include headaches, eye discomfort, and temporary loss of vision. In most cases, reactions are minor and easy to treat. However, contact your healthcare provider if you have more serious problems, such as hives, an unexplained rash, or severe eye pain.

An Introduction to Quixin Side Effects

As with any medicine, Quixin® (levofloxacin ophthalmic solution) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Quixin. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
 

Common Side Effects of Quixin

Quixin has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people who received Quixin were carefully documented.

  • Temporary loss of vision
  • Fever
  • Feeling like something is stuck in the eye

  • Eye sensitivity to light.
