Hypoglycemia was not a previously known linezolid-associated adverse reaction. A case report describing symptomatic hypoglycemia in a linezolid recipient prompted a review of the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System which demonstrated a relationship between linezolid and hypoglycemia. A warning with this information was added to the linezolid package insert.
