"The Fluoroquinolone Drugs are the most toxic and dangerous antibiotic in clinical practice today."
From: http://www.fqresearch.org/

Quinolone (short for Floroquinolone) drugs are banned in many nations for the simple reason of damage to human beings. There is a threshold of how much quinolones one can take in a lifetime, we never know when we reach that threshold, it could be with 1 pill or 1000 pills, everyone is different.

There are other safer abx choices. Floxing (permanent damage from drug) can occur up to 18 months after the drug has been stopped, an LD patient may believe they were relapsing when really the problem could be quinolone toxicity.

For more on this subject and to report your side effects: http://www.fluoroquinolones.org/ Click on Fact Sheet in left hand column, pay close attention to #14 and #15!

"Floxing or Floxed" is the term used for quinolone toxicity and it is very serious and needs to be reported to the FDA as well. Here are warnings from the FDA on Levaquin: http://www.fda.gov/medwatch/SAFETY/2004 ... m#Levaquin

My advice to anyone before starting any abx, research it and read the label at the FDA website, then decide if it is right for you.
