Antibiotic Body Damage Recovery (Levaquin Cipro Side Effects and How I Healed)
It is my opinion only, that the damage these antibiotics are causing to people's bodies may be partially or fully due to the drug's destruction of crucially important healthy forms of bacteria in the gut. This, along with leaky gut which I believe is epidemic, may cause both a fungal version of yeast called candida to breach the barrier in the gut, and give the immune system a particularly difficult time managing it, as well as oxalate to also permeate the entire body causing a potential double-whammy that if addressed, may reverse the condition. Lots to be pissed off about with this situation. But one biggie is in how people are being told this condition is permanent. Although I believe it can be difficult to reverse, I believe it is entirely possible if approached from the above theoretical standpoint. That is how I approached it, and have had tremendous results. See my programs as well as the free info over at http://MaintenanceMotions.com. If you have some organic expeller-pressed coconut oil...or oil of your choice according to options available via Ayurvedic tradition...I'd give oil pulling a try, sticking with it for a solid few months. I have found it to be incredibly effective for joint/tendon issues, with dietary change, gut health with probiotics, and candida management to offer profound improvements. I need to consistently maintain the effort, but it's a part of my lifestyle regardless. Then I added some high quality ubiquinol to assist with mitochondrial damage, and energy production. http://FacelessFatloss.com My Over 40 program: http://Over40andRipped.com And Facebook: http://facebook.com/tim.ripped Love, Happiness, Health and Peace.........Tim .

Levaquin Tendonitis
https://www.TendonitisExpert.com/levaquin-tendonitis.html Levaquin Tendonitis is NOT regular tendonitis. The Levaquin antibiotic, a member of the fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics (along with Cipro, Avelox, Levofloxacin, etc) attack a person's connective tissue structures and can even cause DNA damage. If you are suffering from Levaquin side effects, you MUST educate yourself about how Levaquin works and how to give your body it's best chance at being able to recover.

Could Cipro and Other Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics Cause Irreversible Tendon Damage?
Could Cipro and Other Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics Cause Irreversible Tendon Damage? Though still rare, the potential risks are significant enough for the Food and Drug Administration to suggest limiting these drugs’ use to cases of absolute necessity. The FDA has updated its warnings for — and recommended limitations on — prescribing a class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones, citing potentially irreversible side-effects including tendon damage and rupture.

These Antibiotics Cause Nerve Damage And Lifelong Disability
These Antibiotics Cause Nerve Damage And Lifelong Disability The Fluoroquinolones are a group of antibiotics that are usually prescribed for urinary tract infections and respiratory infections, but these antibiotic can cause serious nerve damage. These antibiotics were given to more than 23 million patients in 2011. Fluoroquinolones include: Ofloxacin (Floxin) Norfloxacin (Noroxin) Moxifloxacin (Avelox) Levofloxacin (Levaquin) Gemifloxacin(Factive) Ciprofloxacin (Cipro) The FDA required an update on the labels of these drugs, their side effects of peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy This antibiotic kills the bacteria that cause the illness. But according to new research, the risks of these medications are more than the benefits of it. Peripheral neuropathy is when the nerves which send the information are damaged. This damage disables the connection. People with peripheral neuropathy can feel numbness, burning pain in the legs or the arms and tingling. These medications can cause long-lasting damage to the nerves and this can lead to disability. They can get into the blood-brain barrier and this leads to getting into the brain and damaging the central nervous system. In 2010 Levaquin was the most selling antibiotic and by 2011 had more than 2000 lawsuits from patients. SYMPTOMS AND SIDE EFFECTS You will feel the symptoms after only a few days, and you should contact medical help immediately. The symptoms are: Tingling Numbness Burning Weakness Rupture and tendon damage Shooting pains Confusion Muscle and joint pain Hallucinations NATURAL TREATMENT For sinus infection drink a lot of water and teas. You can prepare a natural remedy with lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. And for UTI you must also drink water and teas and take probiotics like kefir, yogurt, kombucha etc. Watch the video for more information.

[16] Hillary Clinton taking controversial antibiotic with "Black Box" warning
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is taking the controversial antibiotic, Levaquin, according to medical information released by her team this week. https://m.hrc.onl/secretary/10-documents/05-physician-letter/HRC_physician_letter.pdf Clinton, who was diagnosed with pneumonia, is on a 10 day supply of Levaquin. Levaquin is the brand name for levofloxacin, which is part of a class of drugs called fluoroquinolones, intended to treat major infections like pneumonia, anthrax exposure, plague and urinary tract infections. Call 6 Investigates has been looking into potential safety issues with the drug, including devastating side effects like tendon rupture, nerve damage and psychiatric problems. In July, the Food and Drug Administration officially approved safety labeling changes for fluoroquinolones including an updated “boxed warning,” also known as a black box warning, which is the FDA’s most serious type of warning mandated by the agency. The warnings advise patients that the serious side effects generally outweigh the benefits for patients with sinus infections, chronic bronchitis, and urinary tract infections, and fluoroquinolones should be used as a last resort. An FDA safety review found the drugs can cause serious, disabling, and potentially permanent side effects involving the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves and central nervous system. Call 6 Investigates reached out to the Clinton campaign, but they have not yet responded, so it’s unclear if Clinton was aware of the new FDA “black box” warnings when she started taking Levaquin. Dr. Charles Bennett, a vocal critic of Levaquin who has not treated Clinton, said her doctors should examine the presidential candidate for possible side effects including muscle weakness. Clinton recently raised concerns when she appeared to struggled to walk while leaving a 9/11 ceremony. “It could be a serious drug reaction,” said Bennett. “The best thing to do is stop the drug, I would suggest, if it’s a potential serious adverse drug reaction. You can use many other antibiotics for pneumonia. I would defer to her physicians there.” Bennett said he is surprised Hillary Clinton was prescribed Levaquin, given the recent label changes and serious side effect concerns. “Our data estimates the FDA receives several thousand reports per year of this toxicity, and several thousand deaths,” said Bennett. “This is equivalent to a 747 plane going down once a month.”

Achilles' Tendon Tears and Fluoroquinolones
In our video, we discussed how the antibiotic class of Fluoroquinolones can cause tendon tears in several areas of the body, especially the Achilles tendon. There are several types of Fluoroquinolones, including: ciprofloxacin (Cipro), levofloxacin (Levaquin), moxifloxacin (Avelox), ofloxacin (Floxin), and gemifloxacin (Factive). This class of antibiotics have often been used in the treatment of bronchitis, sinus infections, and urinary tract infections in the past. At this time, it has been recommended that the Fluoroquinolones class of antibiotics be used as a second or third line option for resistant bacterial infections due to the serious side effects. In my physical therapy practice, I've seen several cases of acute Achilles tendinopathy and complete Achilles tendon tears, from one week to six months, after taking a course of this type of antibiotic. This can occur in the highly active athletic population that is more prone to Achilles tendon problems and who typically assume Achilles tendon pain is related to their current training. The other high-risk group is more sedentary, less active individuals with poor tendon health and other co-morbidities such as diabetes. We've also seen these antibiotic side effects in tennis elbow and rotator cuff tendon problems. When initiating physical therapy with this population, you must take a very conservative approach in progressing the strengthening and stretching of the individual. In the cases of Achilles tendon tears and tendinopathies, occasionally we will provide heel lifts, ankle boots or orthotics. One of the difficulties in providing a proper diagnosis is noticing the causal relationship between taking the antibiotics and the resulting tendon pain or dysfunction. Often the patient doesn't link the two events and associates the pain with normal muscular skeletal pathology. In some cases, pain in the Achilles can also be related to a lumbar pathology or referred from a retro calcaneal bursitis, plantar fasciitis and / or ankle dysfunction. At my clinic, we guide patients through a McKenzie mechanical evaluation of the foot and ankle complex to rule out whether some of the Achilles pain is related to another structure in the foot and ankle complex. Upon completion of the evaluation, we hope to establish a movement or position that will increase a patient’s mobility and reduce their pain with certain movements and ultimately restore their ability to function. If you are unsure if you've taken this type of antibiotic, consulting with your pharmacy is a good first step. In cases where you suspect you may be having a side effect from this type of antibiotic, it is imperative that you discontinue any activity that produces pain and consult with a physician.

[13] Local Doctors Explain Risks Of Taking Levaquin ( Fluoroquinolone Toxicity )
Website link: http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2015/04/07/local-doctors-explain-risks-of-taking-levaquin/ Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CBSPittsburgh April 7, 2015 5:45 PM on CBS Pittsburgh PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Some swear by them, others say they’re dangerous – if not deadly. KDKA-TV health editor Dr. Maria Simbra explains why some are calling for a closer look at a certain group of antibiotics. From time-to-time, Janice Olszewski’s mother, Mary, needs to take antibiotics for urinary tract infections. “She gets very weak, she gets sick. Sometimes, she’ll get disoriented,” Olszewski said. Her doctor prescribed a medicine called Levaquin. “He said it would help clear the infection, and we should get fairly quick results with it. It’s been a Godsend for us,” Olszewski said. “If it wouldn’t be for Levaquin, we’d have a hard time managing her health care. “I’d say 20-30 times a year, we give a prescription for levofloxacin,” Dr. Marc Itskowitz of Allegheny General Hospital’s Internal Medicine said. “We try to reserve it for patients who need a broader spectrum antibiotic, may have been exposed to other antibiotics and are still sick. It’s very effective in those patients.” Taking it by mouth works the same as taking it by IV. It also comes in an easy-to-swallow liquid. While it kept Janice’s mother out of the hospital, not everyone has had a good experience. Karen Paddock was taking out the garbage when she cut her leg on a broken dish in the trash bag. She got stitches, followed by infection of the skin – cellulitis. “At that point, they gave her the Levaquin antibiotics for the cellulitis,” Bob Paddock said. Six months later, she developed tendon troubles and couldn’t walk. “It was in 2003, and at that point, I’m not sure all the risks that are known today were known then,” Paddock said. After ten years of using a scooter around the house in chronic pain, at age 43, she committed suicide – four days shy of her 20th wedding anniversary. Her husband has strong hopes for all similar antibiotics. “That they either get taken off the market, or they get a whole lot harder for anybody to prescribe,” he said. Levaquin, generically known as levofloxacin, is in a class of drugs called fluoroquinolones. They work by attacking bacterial DNA, making the bacteria unable to multiply. Known risks include nerve problems and tendon rupture. Fluoroquinolones are not recommended for people taking steroids, people with a history of seizures, and people with certain heart rhythm abnormalities. Pharmaceutical watchdog Dr. Charles Bennett is trying to expand the warnings by bringing a citizen’s petition to the FDA. “I’ve been doing this work so long, that I think patients find me,” Dr. Bennett said. His focus is the rare complication of mitochondrial toxicity. You can think of mitochondria as your cells’ battery packs. Without them, your cells have no energy. He said if an event happens right after the medicine is given, that would be a reaction. He also has lab researchers who have been able to recreate symptoms in mice. “There’s a little bit of an art, rather than a science. There’s not a specific diagnostic test,” he said. He would like to expand the black box warning on Levaquin, or establish a process so that patients must sign that they understand the risks of the drug. “This would make Levaquin a little bit less attractive to use if it goes through as a black box warning,” Dr. Amesh Adalja, of the UPMC Center for Health Securit, said. This infectious disease specialist said the class of antibiotics does have a role to play, but shouldn’t be prescribed automatically. “Even if you’re prescribing penicillin, it’s something you have to do with each infection that you treat. You have to make sure is this the right bug that you’re treating, and is this the right drug that you’re using,” Dr. Adalja said. “For every patient that has been harmed by a medication, there are thousands that have been helped by it. And we don’t often hear from them,” Dr. Itskowitz said. “She’s had adverse reactions in the past to numerous drugs, so we’re always very alert to those types of reactions. And we felt the risks were minimal,” Olszewski said. Hearing from Olszewski, she’s thankful her mother had the option of Levaquin. “Within a couple of days, she starts to feel better,” she said.

[3] Popular Antibiotic May Be Causing Permanent Damage ( Fluoroquinolone Toxicity )
WSET-TV Mar 30, 2015 11:03 PM Lynchburg, VA - Popular antibiotics used to treat common infections may be causing permanent damage. Fluoroquinolones have been at the center of more than 2-thousand lawsuits in the past year. They are among the most commonly prescribed antibiotics. Levaquin and Cipro are the big ones, and are used to treat everything from anthrax to a simple sinus or urinary track infection. "The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, which can happen with any antibiotics" said Stephanie Puckett, Director of Clinical Pharmacy Services at Centra. Yet unlike other antibiotics, Fluoroquinolones come with a special 'black box' warning. That's the FDA's strictest warning, alerting patients of the possible nerve and tendon damage the antibiotic can cause. "I would consider the Fluoroquinolones a very strong or potent class of antibiotics because they do cover a large variety of organisms" said Puckett. But patients around the country say these prescription drugs carry more serious side effects than are listed on the label, including psychological effects. They have banded together on the Facebook page "The Fluoroquinolone Wall of Pain", to push the FDA for stronger warnings. Group member Wayne Smith says he only took Levaquin for 3 days and suffered from "depression from hell, crying all day and night for no reason at all… Panic attacks, 24/7 anxiety that would not stop." Similarly Lana Kennedy says she was "in a state of extreme confusion & began experiencing severe panic attacks" after taking Cipro. Patients filed a citizen's petition asking the FDA to expand its warning on Fluoroquinolones. The new warning would include other reported side effects like damage to mitochondria in cells and psychological effects. The FDA says "they are considering the matters raised by the petition and giving it [their} careful attention."

Achilles Tendon Ruptures and Antibiotics: A Case Study - New York Attorney Matthew McCauley
Achilles Tendon Ruptures and Antibiotics: A Case Study - New York Attorney Matthew McCauley explains more at: https://www.yourlawyer.com/defective-drug-attorneys/ Watch as attorney Matthew McCauley of Parker Waichman recalls the case of John, an avid golfer who was detrimentally harmed by the side effects of his prescription drugs. For a gentleman in his late 80s, John is extremely active. He's a World War II veteran and a golf fanatic who loves to teach others the game and play with this family.

[4] Dangerous side effect of popular antibiotic ( Fluoroquinolone Toxicity )
11:38 PM, Mar 26, 2015 WFTS TAMPA BAY A urinary tract infection sent Largo resident Nancy Garlow to a doctor last fall. He prescribed one of the popular antibiotics in a group known as fluoroquinolones. The pain hit on day five. Garlow claims she read the drug insert but only after severe side effects took over and she could barely walk. She said no one mentioned these pills carry a black box warning – the FDA's strongest – regarding "serious nerve damage" and debilitating pain. Seven months later, Galow says she remains too sick to return to work. In Sarasota, Dr. Susan Tannenbaum said she's spent the last 12 months putting her life back together. A bout of bronchitis led to a prescription for another popular fluoroquinolone, levofloxacin, whose brand name is Levaquin. By day seven she was unable to get out of bed. Dr. Tannenbaum describes being in the kind of pain that left her barely able to move and it lasted for months. Dr. Charles Bennett who heads up South Carolina's drug watchdog agency says he’s concerned about the number of people who’ve suffered devastating side effects. FDA documents show they've received 1,200 reported deaths related to Levaquin and its generic levofloxacin between 1997 and 2012. Dr. Bennett said only 1 percent of adverse effects are reported to the FDA. Last summer Dr. Bennett filed a petition with the FDA for stronger warnings about more of Levaquin's side effects, including those on the brain. The FDA upgraded its nerve damage warning in 2013 on all fluoroquinolones. Dr. Tennenbaum said she is proof it is not enough. We asked the FDA about the petition. They responded via email: "The FDA takes concerns raised about safety of approved drugs very seriously and we are considering the matters raised by the petition and giving it our careful attention." Johnson & Johnson, the makers of Levaquin, told us it monitors the safety of all of their medicines and incorporates new data into their labels so doctors and patients can make informed decisions. Here is the company’s statement in full. Statement from Janssen: At Janssen, our first priority is the well-being of the people who use our medicines. We are aware of the Citizen Petition and we are evaluating it. LEVAQUIN® (levofloxacin) is part of the important fluoroquinolone class of anti-infective prescription medications that have been used for more than 20 years to treat infections, including those that may be serious or life threatening. All medicines, including LEVAQUIN®, have both benefits and risks. We continually collect and monitor information on the safety and effectiveness of all our medicines, and, in cooperation with the US FDA and other health authorities, we incorporate new data into our product labels so doctors and patients can make informed decisions. Ever since it was first approved by the FDA in 1996, the LEVAQUIN® label has provided information to physicians on the risks and benefits associated with the medication, including warnings and precautions.

Fluoroquinolone antibiotics (Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox and a few others) are a horrifically destructive class of poisons marketed to the public as antibiotics by Bayer and Johnson & Johnson. They are capable of massive harm, disabling unsuspecting patients for life with as little as a few pills. Previously healthy and active individuals become bedridden, wheelchair-bound or requiring crutches or walkers--sometimes for life. Doctors will not tell you this, nor will pharmacists! DO YOUR RESEARCH! The FDA is not protecting us! Already harmed by Cipro or Avelox?

To clarify a few things stated in this story: First off, there is NO CURE for Cipro and Levaquin-induced side effects! They do not respond to traditional therapies as an overuse or sports injury would. This is a chemical injury we're talking about here. It is important to note that the FDA ONLY added the black box warning to these drugs after they were sued by watchdog group Public Citizen! They did not do this out of the kindness of their own hearts or because it was the moral & ethical thing to do (or what their agency is SUPPOSED to be doing--protecting the people!!!). Lastly, most doctors prescribe this harmful class of antibiotic without ever even trying a safer alternative first. It has been found that over 80% of the time, Cipro is prescribed inappropriately or unnecessarily! This obviously puts a great number of innocent lives at needless risk of losing absolutely everything. *Had to mirror this video in order to keep it from being taken down. The message is too important not to be heard.

[14] Candidates and their health: New concerns for Clinton (fluoroquinolone toxicity)
RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton has been prescribed the controversial drug Levaquin, a drug 8News has exposed to cause serious permanent damage in some cases — including problems with the central nervous system. That prompted the FDA in May to issue a new warning about the drug, which is part of a group of powerful antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones. Clinton has been advised to take the drug for 10 days for her pneumonia. For more than year, 8News has reported on patients who say these drugs have left them with permanent pain At an FDA hearing about the drugs, Mark Girard told 8News, “within days of starting the Levaquin, I completely lost control of my bladder, I had blot clot.” Rachel Brummert, who has led an effort to warn the public about Levaquin, added, “within a month of taking Levaquin I ruptured my first tendon, it was my Achilles tendon, and in last 9 years I have ruptured 10 tendons.” In May, the FDA responded by issuing new label changes for the drugs, stating the antibiotics have been associated with disabling and potentially irreversible adverse reactions including tendon ruptures and problems with the central nervous system. Meanwhile, as candidate health takes center stage, Donald Trump surprises Doctor Oz on Thursday with his physical results. “Your BMI is high,” Dr. Oz said as he reviewed Trumps records. He went on to tells Trump he could lose some weight – to which Trump agreed – but also said that Trump is in good health for a man his age. Meanwhile, many patient advocacy groups are speaking out about the drugs Clinton has been given. The Quinolone Vigilance Foundation says the adverse effects from these drugs do not discriminate and can affect anyone at any time. The QVF issued this statement: We are concerned about anyone who is prescribed a fluoroquinolone antibiotic such as Levaquin, Cipro, and Avelox. They can be associated with severe, often permanent, adverse events and should be reserved for the most serious, life threatening conditions for which there are no safer alternatives. Fluoroquinolone adverse effects do not discriminate and can affect anyone at any time. While recent labeling changes from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on fluoroquinolone antibiotics are a big step in the right direction, the news of Secretary Clinton being prescribed Levaquin will hopefully start a national conversation highlighting the need for full disclosure of risks, contraindications, and about the over-prescribing of antibiotics leading to antibiotic resistance. We wish Secretary Clinton a full recovery with no adverse effects from the use of Levaquin.

Fluoroquinolones and Statins: A Recipe for Rhabdomyolysis - WSB 03-02-2015
A Duluth woman says a popular antibiotic killed her husband. Beware of ALL fluoroquinolone antibiotics including Levaquin, Cipro & Avelox! As little as one pill can cripple a formally healthy, active individual for life. Doctors largely deny this fact while the FDA chooses to look the other way. Don't let it happen to you! In May, 2017, WSB-TV 2 Atlanta aired the story, “Clark Howard says near-fatal disease possibly caused by popular antibiotic,” https://youtu.be/zkz0Q6sKmJI in which the story of how Clark Howard, a popular consumer expert and host of the nationally syndicated Clark Howard Show, was hurt by a combination of ciprofloxacin (a fluoroquinolone antibiotic) and generic Lipitor (a statin). Mr. Howard had a severe and life-threatening reaction to these drugs, and he is quoted in the story as saying, “I felt like death,” and “It was a struggle to walk five steps.” Mr. Howard was admitted to the hospital where he was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis–a condition where muscles break down rapidly, causing severe strain on the kidneys and, potentially, death. Both fluoroquinolones alone, and fluoroquinolones combined with statins, have been documented to cause rhabdomyolysis. Here are some articles about fluoroquinolone-induced rhabdomyolysis: Journal of Rheumatology, “Malignant hyperthermia susceptibility revealed by myalgia and rhabdomyolysis during fluoroquinolone treatment.” Intensive Care Medicine, “Moxifloxacin-induced rhabdomyolysis” Annals of Pharmacotherapy, “Acute Rhabdomyolysis Associated with Ofloxacin/Levofloxacin Therapy” Additionally, here are some articles about fluoroquinolone plus statin induced rhabdomyolysis: Hindawi, “Acute Rhabdomyolysis Associated with Coadministration of Levofloxacin and Simvastatin in a Patient with Normal Renal Function“ BMJ Case Reports, “Ciprofloxacin and statin interaction: a cautionary tale of rhabdomyolysis.” Canadian Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, “RHABDOMYOLYSIS DUE TO AN UNCOMMON INTERACTION OF CIPROFLOXACIN WITH SIMVASTATIN“ Both fluoroquinolones and statins are known to damage mitochondria, and they are both fluorinated drugs. They are also both widely prescribed–to millions of people annually–often concurrently. In the article “Musculoskeletal Complications of Fluoroquinolones: Guidelines and Precautions for Usage in the Athletic Population” a description of the basic science behind fluoroquinolone-induced muscle damage (and rhabdomyolysis) is described. The following is a quote from “Musculoskeletal Complications of Fluoroquinolones: Guidelines and Precautions for Usage in the Athletic Population - Read full story here with links: https://floxiehope.com/2017/05/29/fluoroquinolones-and-statins-a-recipe-for-rhabdomyolysis/ Video above are the news story about Chris Dannelly, who was killed after levofloxacin-induced rhabdomyolysis.

Levaquin Peripheral Neuropathy
http://www.levaquinlawsuitcenter.com/ The discovery of antibiotics has helped to save millions of lives. A particularly powerful type of antibiotic known as fluoroquinolones are used for treating serious bacterial infections. Levaquin is one of these types of fluoroquinilines. The problem, however, is that Levaquin is also prescribed for illnesses that are not very serious, for instance, ear infections and sinus infections. This has resulted in cases of Levaquin peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy happens when nerves which carry messages to and from the brain become damaged or diseased. This has disabled many people who have used the antibiotic Levaquin. These Levaquin neuropathy symptoms are: • Burning or tingling • Shooting pain • Vision problems • Digestive issues • Sweating • Intolerance to heat • Muscle weakness • Lack of coordination • Changes in blood pressure • Dizziness or lightheadedness The FDA required drug manufacturers to list peripheral neuropathy as one of the side effects of these fluoroquinolones. Unfortunately, the warnings were added 12 years after this connection was discovered. Levaquin peripheral neuropathy has resulted in many people becoming completely disabled and unable to work. A Levaquin lawsuit claims that these drug companies failed to adequately warn consumers of the association with peripheral neuropathy. If you or someone you know has experienced Levaquin nerve damage and been diagnosed with neuropathy, you may be entitle to compensation. To learn more about your rights when it comes to Levaquin peripheral neuropathy, please call the experienced law office of Bernstein Liebhard at 1-888-988-2399. http://www.levaquinlawsuitcenter.com/peripheral-neuropathy/ https://www.facebook.com/levaquinlawsuit

[12] Powerful Antibiotic Could Be A Prescription For Danger Pt. II (Fluoroquinolone Toxicity)
February 24, 2015 11:35 PM CBS Miami http://miami.cbslocal.com/2015/02/24/powerful-antibiotic-could-be-a-prescription-for-danger-pt-ii/ Sixty year old Joseph King of North Miami said his life changed and he believes could end prematurely because of what he considers to be a toxic poisoning by the antibiotic Levaquin. Levaquin is one of a class of antibiotics called Flouroquinolones coming under heightened scrutiny by some medical researchers and the public. CBS4 Chief Investigative Reporter Michele Gillen asked King about the impact he believes the drug has had on his life. “It has destroyed it, completely destroyed it. As you can see it has killed my teeth. It has destroyed my jaw. So I cannot have any oral surgery to repair it. It has dissolved my tendons and connective tissue. And my muscles have actually decayed and my prognosis is very dim,” shared King. Click here to watch Michele Gillen’s report Four years ago, King said he was prescribed Levaquin in an emergency room, when he was suffering from salmonella poisoning, or food poisoning. “I was put on it intravenously then put on a dose of it orally for the next 30 days,” said King. As CBS4 News recently reported, this class of antibiotics carries a black box warning for possible tendon injuries. Since that first report, the Investigative team has reviewed an internal FDA safety report on the potential negative impact this class of drugs has on nerve endings. On page 12, CBS4 found the FDA’s own revelation of how these drugs can essentially impact a user in ways similar to neuro-degenerative diseases such as “Parkinson’s , Alzheimer’s, and ALS.” If the drugs can affect the function of our cells, the mitochondria and ultimately the brain, Alan Redd, a biological anthropologist, who is writing about this class of drugs, told Gillen it is chilling. “They state explicitly in there that mitochondrial dysfunction can be associated with neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, ALS and Parkinson’s,” insisted Redd. He continued in a Skype interview with Gillen from his home in Kansas where he teaches at the University of Kansas. He believes even a recently revised warning is not strong enough. “There is a big disconnect between the safety report and that warning. There is no warning in the new package about brain damage, about Alzheimer’s about Parkinson’s or ALS. So there is a disconnect about the internal document and what was released to the public. And I find that disturbing. I find that outrageous actually,” Redd reflected. Redd said he was damaged by taking this class of antibiotics five years ago. He said he, “suffered a number of side effects. They have not resolved completely. ” Meanwhile, Redd is pushing for more transparency from the FDA regarding its own findings and joining supporters of a citizens petition filed with the FDA last June. His message to the FDA is, “come clean and tell the public and physicians that this is a class of drugs as you noted in your document that has the potential to damage mitochondria, cause dysfunction and potentially increase your probability for neurological diseases.” King agreed, saying “not only is the public not aware of this, the doctors are not aware of it either.” King said these drugs can be life saving for many, especially in the cases of life-threatening illnesses but he fears that without change, more patients could find themselves walking the road he is. What is his goal now? “To make it each day,” said King.

Can You Ban Ciprofloxican?
If you hate this drug, like and share with everyone you know. This medication may rarely cause tendon damage (e.g., tendonitis, tendon rupture) during or after treatment. Your risk for tendon problems is greater if you are over 60 years of age, if you are taking corticosteroids (such as prednisone), or if you have a kidney, heart or lung transplant. Stop exercising, rest, and seek immediate medical attention if you develop joint/muscle/tendon pain or swelling. Ciprofloxacin should not be used in patients with myasthenia gravis. It may cause the condition to become worse. Seek immediate medical attention if you develop muscle weakness or trouble breathing. http://www.topix.com/forum/health/urinary-tract-infections/T2BIO9D13BND9QFI1

Popular antibiotics fluoroquinolones linked to tendinitis, tendon rupture - IN60
From Maryland - The FDA is warning that the popular class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones, which includes Cipro and Avelox, may raise the risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture. While tendon rupture is seen in about 1 in 100,000 people, use of these medicines appears to triple the risk. Most cases appear to affect the Achilles tendon. From Malawi - In developing nations, infants born to HIV positive mothers are at risk for becoming HIV positive through exposure to breast milk. According to research in the New England Journal of Medicine, use of antiretrovirals for an extended period of time can lower the risk of HIV transmission by 50%. However, with continued breast feeding, the risk of transmission remains present. And finally, back to Maryland - The FDA has approved a diagnostic test that can assist doctors in deciding when to offer Herceptin to patients with breast cancer. The test, called SPOT-Light, requires a small tissue sample from the tumor, and detects HER2 mutations which affect about a quarter of women with breast cancer. The test may eliminate the need for assays that involve the more complex FISH test. For Insidermedicine in 60, I'm Allison Chow.

QEpisode 47 -  FDA Approved Doesn't Mean Its Safe for You
[Sandra Bucha] Just because the FDA has approved a particular drug does not mean that in your particular situation it is the proper drug for you. For example, the drug Xarelto, perhaps you've seen advertisements already on television, can result in certain individuals with hemorrhaging and bleeding which can lead to hospitalization or perhaps even death. The drug Celebrex, again you've probably seen on television, can result in kidney failure and death for certain individuals. The drugs Prednisone and Levaquin when taken together can actually, in a single dose, result in tendon rupture requiring surgery. You need ask your doctors. You need to ask your providers all of the risks and complications that might occur from your taking any one particular drug. Even when you pick up the prescription, read the inserts, read the package inserts so you are fully aware of the possible consequences of taking this particular drug. It is your responsibility.
