Recently I did an interview with WebMD author/reporter Matt McMillen on the dangers of Fluoroquinolones.
Drug’s that can mutate DNA and create a disease process are downright scary. They start the ball rolling on a pathology that often appears later on..
So the next time someone asks you ‘Why are these drugs still on the market?” even though you may not agree, you will at least know the answer.
Every once in a while I get the dubious honor of talking to a doctor who has been floxed. This conversation was a poignant example of dangerous the FQ’s are in our society
One hundred patients who went to the Emergency Room and received a Fluoroquinolone were studied, in ninety nine of those cases, errors were made with the Fluoroquinolone!
On Thursday May 12, 2016 the FDA contacted those who have been pursuing label changes for the Fluoroquinolones and issued a public statement that the FDA is requiring label changes for antibacterial drugs called fluoroquinolones
On Nov. 5th, the true stars of our community took to the podium at the FDA to tell their personal stories. I, along with countless others, were humbled and honored. This meeting represented a huge step in the progress we are making to gain complete recognition of the travesty that the fluoroquinolone class of pharmaceuticals has wrought upon society, to achieve justice for those that have been damaged by these drugs, and to prevent future unnecessary pain and suffering not only for this generation, but for generations to come.
Dr. Beatrice Golomb, University of California San Diego, has been able to successfully publish a paper with four case reports of individuals suffering from Fluoroquinolone Toxicity.
We believe that the attention given the Fluoroquinolones through the combined media stories, past rallies, citizen petitions, in addition to community members meeting directly with FDA officials, provided some of the impetus, in part, for the scrutiny of the Fluoroquinolones being prescribed for these common health conditions.
