Hypoglycemia is a rare life threatening adverse drug reaction associated with various fluoroquinolones like
ciprofloxacin, gatifloxacin and levofloxacin. Moxifloxacin was considered safe in this regard. Only one case has been
reported for moxifloxacin-induced hypoglycemia in a renal failure patient. Here, we are reporting the second case of
hypoglycemia due to moxifloxacin without any major co-morbid condition.
Keywords: Adverse drug reaction, fluoroquinolones, hypoglycemia, moxifloxacin, pharmacovigilance.
