Objective: To report a case of ciprofloxacin-induced syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH). Case Summary: A 68-year-old Caucasian woman presented on 2 separate occasions with generalized weakness. Both times, she was started on ciprofloxacin for a urinary tract infection. Prior to the first episode, she had also been on Augmentin for several days. On both occasions, her ciprofloxacin was discontinued on admission, and her sodium levels rose. On the first occasion, she was given…

Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone Secretion and Lead Toxicity in a Child With Sickle Cell Disease and Pica
The presentation and management of a three-year-old child with a history of pica, vitamin D deficiency, and sickle cell disease, who was admitted for pyelonephritis, and found to have elevated blood lead level, who subsequently developed altered mental status and syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH).
Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone Consecutive to treatment with Ciprofloxacin.
There is more evidence suggesting that tacrolimus and sirolimus do indeed cause cardiac tamponade possibly related to FK-B12 activation and further investigation of this topic is warranted.
Severe Asymptomatic Hyponatremia in an Elderly Man.
A case of hyponatremia in a 65-year male, which was being managed as a case of diabetic nephropathy, with initial results showed a sodium level of 120 mmol/L, but subsequent electrolyte assay after a week on medications showed serum sodium of 103mmol/L with no associated symptoms ofHyponatremeia, except nausea and an episode of vomiting.
Severe Hyponatremia due to Levofloxacin Treatment for Pseudomonas aeruginosa Community-Acquired Pneumonia in a Patient with Oropharyngeal Cancer
This case report refers to a middle-aged man with severe hyponatremia due to Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone Secretion related to four possible etiological factors: glossopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma, cisplatin treatment, right basal pneumonia with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and the treatment with Levofloxacin.

Nitrofurantoin is effective on microorganisms in a very low inhibitory concentration reaching 32 μg/ml or less, but it is not recommended to give it for the elderly population as per the American Geriatrics Society 2019 Updated Beers Criteria for Potentially Inappropriate Medication Use in Older Adults.
Diagnosis of Late‐Onset Takayasu Arteritis for Elderly Adults Using Fluorine‐18 Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography
A serious but easily treatable condition can be diagnosed easily even in the early stages by keeping the risk of escitalopram-induced hyponatremia in mind.
Shock – Classification and Pathophysiological Principles of Therapeutics
The mechanism of action, dosage requirements, advantages and disadvantages, and specific indications and contraindications for the use of each of these catechola-mines and vasopressors are described to elucidate the most important clinical trials that serve as the basis of contemporary shock therapy.

This data indicates that the use of a glucose recording device in the evaluation of cognitive disorders may have an important effect on the prognosis of hypoglycaemia in patients with high blood sugar.
Toxicity induced by ciprofloxacin and enrofloxacin: oxidative stress and metabolism
This review manuscript aims to identify the toxicity induced by ROS and OS as a common sequel of CIP and ENR, and reports on their metabolism and the role of metabolizing enzymes were reported.

Hyponatremia and hypernatremia in the elderly.
Clinicians should have a clear appreciation of the roles that iatrogenic interventions and lapses in nutrition and nursing care frequently play in upsetting the homeostatic balance in elderly patients, particularly those who are in longterm institutional and inpatient settings.

Quinolone antibacterials, originally derived from anti-malarial compounds, have been developed through side-chain and nuclear manipulation, notably by piperazine and other mono- or bi-cyclic substitutions at the 7 position and fluorination at various sites (giving increased anti-Gram-positive activity).
Cerebrospinal fluid transport and disposition of the quinolones ciprofloxacin and pefloxacin in rats.
The difference in CSF exposure of both quinolones and the presence of active metabolites of N-methylated quinlones in the CSF may be of clinical relevance in the treatment of CNS infections, but differences in antimicrobial activity have to be taken into account as well.
Distribution, blood transport, and degradation of antidiuretic hormone in man.
It is concluded that in man antidiuretic hormone circulates as a free (non-protein bound) peptide, diffuses readily into the extracellular fluid space, and is metabolized within minutes.
A method for estimating the probability of adverse drug reactions
It was shown that the ADR probability scale has consensual, content, and concurrent validity and may be applicable to postmarketing drug surveillance.
