all ages. This risk is further increased in older patients usually over
60 years of age, in patients taking corticosteroid drugs, and in
patients with kidney, heart or lung transplants.
Fluoroquinolones, including moxifloxacin, may exacerbate muscle
weakness in persons with myasthenia gravis. Avoid moxifloxacin in
patients with known history of myasthenia gravis.
