Ofloxacin and Joint Problems

Final Thoughts

As mentioned, ofloxacin is not approved for use in children. However, there may be times when it is used "off-label" in this age group. If your child is prescribed this drug, tell his or her healthcare provider about any past joint, muscle, or tendon problems before starting treatment.
 
Also, contact your child's healthcare provider immediately if any muscle, joint, or tendon problems occur during or following ofloxacin use. Signs of joint problems may include joint weakness, soreness, or swelling, or problems with walking or moving joints. Your child's healthcare provider will tell you if your child should stop using ofloxacin.
