Ortho McNeil – Levaquin QuarterWatch

I wonder if the Ortho McNeil sales force told doctors that Levaquin was ranked as the third most dangerous drug? According to the QuarterWatch Report below, Levaquin ranked third in this category. And the two drugs that ranked ahead of Levaquin are drugs that are taken on an everyday basis. If Levaquin can rank as number three when it is not taken on an everyday basis, that tells you a lot about how dangerous it really is.  It is a real shame that the drug reps at Ortho McNeil, the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, failed to communicate the true health risks to doctors about this dangerous drug.
