Do you have undiagnosed symptoms? Do you find yourself saying, “What’s wrong with me?” and Doctors are unable to explain to you the cause of your symptoms?
It could be that you or a loved one suffering the side effects of taking Fluoroquinolone, Levaquin, or Cipro. You and your Doctors may not even be aware that fluoroquinolone drugs have killed thousands of people and permanently harmed tens of thousands more.
You may not have even realized that taking these Fluoroquinolone, Levaquin, or Cipro drugs or a combination of these drugs along with a steroid can cause debilitating symptoms. Some people end up with symptoms and do not tie it to the fact that they took these drug “cocktails.” They are experiencing mysterious symptoms and have not tied it to the fact that they took these drugs. Others know immediately that the drug combination was debilitating.
Case Studies, do these symptoms sound familiar?
Do any of these stories sound familiar? Jane Doe took 3 pills of Levaquin and Prednisone and knew immediately that something was horribly, horribly wrong, and has been in a wheelchair since. Her neurologist told her that there is extreme mitochondria cell damage that she may or may not recover from. Her neurological issues also triggers severe, loud tinnitus, causing ringing in her ears 24/7.
John Doe went in for a routine eye surgery to correct his nearsightedness. He was not a candidate for a more routine type Lasik surgery. As part of his routine pattern and practice, the Dr. prescribed 3 sets of eye drops as a preventative measure. One eye drop for pain, one steroid eye drop and one eye drop to prevent an infection. The drugs were Besivance, Prolensa and Durezol. Within weeks the client had unexplained symptoms and has been unable to work, walk or function ever since. He is experiencing neurological tremors and convulsions, and unable to t walk 5 steps without the tremors.
In one family alone, 3 people passed away from being on quinolones for minor UTI, or urinary tract infections. Granted there may be a genetic disposition in this family to be unduly affected by these drug “cocktails.” Therefore ask questions, be wary if you are prescribed two medicines at the same time as there can be extreme adverse effects from combining a steroid and some antibiotics in the Fluoroquinolone family.
Serious Side Effects
These drugs combinations can negatively affect your life forever. It is not uncommon for these drugs to result in Fibromyalgia and/or peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy involves damage to the nerves that may impair sensation, movement and other aspects of health. This diagnosis may result in burning, tingling, persistent pain, weakness, sensitivity to light touches, tingling, temperature sensitivity and motion restriction in the legs and arms, as well as other problems that case a major disruption to daily activities or normal daily functioning.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is advising that the serious side effects associated with fluoroquinolone antibacterial drugs generally outweigh the benefits for patients with acute sinusitis, acute bronchitis, and uncomplicated urinary tract infections who have other treatment options. For patients with these conditions, fluoroquinolones should be reserved for those who do not have alternative treatment options.
An FDA safety review has shown that fluoroquinolones when used systemically (i.e. tablets, capsules, and injectable) are associated with disabling and potentially permanent serious side effects that can occur together. These side effects can involve the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves, and central nervous system.
Patients should contact their doctor if they experience side effects like unusual joint pain, muscle weakness, numbness or hallucinations.
