People with medical knowledge: is flucloxacillin a quinoline/fluroquinoline still? Watch

    So I had a bad reaction to ciprofloxacin - I should't have been prescribed it in the first place as I have SLE and prior tendonitis. (cipro and quinolines can cause muscle/tendon problems for those that are risk, I started limping within a few days of taking it but worst case scenario tendon rupture which happened to my dad)

    I had to go to a GP as a temporary patient but I did mention the SLE and cipro and she said she'd put me on a pencillin, but is it also a quinoline? doing a quick google search one of the top 5 says it is - the others just list as a penicillin.

    Would it be better to be an another type of antibiotic? I can presume the 'flu' at the beginning means it concerns fluoride which I also thought is not good?

    Many Thanks

    No, it's not a quinolone. It does have a fluorine atom, but I'm not aware that usually causes problems.
