Dammit, Jim, I’m Not a Doctor! There is no medical advice in this Facebook group. It’s all just my opinion or the opinion of others. You’re responsible for your own healthdammit_jim care decisions so don’t even think about trying to blame me for anything – it won’t work. I, or other contributors referred to as (we), “RECOMMEND” NOTHING, technically.  I (we) offer education and opinions and some educated hunches about the benefits and risks of of various pieces information. What you do with those options is entirely your business and responsibility, much like your dirty laundry. I (we) are obviously not liable for any injury you suffer that seems to be related to anything you read here and thought that you understood.

I’m not a doctor, and I certainly don’t try to play one on the internet. I am just trying to figure fluoroquinolone toxicity out, since most doctors won’t touch it with a 10 foot pole. I’m not even all that well-educated by certain standards. Nothing published here is to be considered medical fact or medical advice; it’s all just opinion, which is known to be wrong from time to time.

Smart DogHell, most doctors are smarter than me. You know, I once had a dog who outsmarted me almost every time I tried to feed my cat and he always ended up getting some of  the cat food. On the other hand, there are some doctors that are flat out dumber than me or that dog when it comes to fluoroquinolone toxicity. So you never know, and you should probably just judge information on its own merits, regardless of credentials, and with the help of a doctor if there’s any real risk involved. In general, the resources located here are good starting places for personal discussions with your doctor. No article or information published on here can or does replace advice received directly from a certified health care professional —ideally a rational and compassionate one, of course!

All of the information on this website involves some scientific debate and often controversy. It takes decades of scientific consensus before any idea can start to be considered fact-like. Until then, every scientific idea is a theory, and everything I talk about it, is an opinion. So,bottom line, this information and advice published or made available through this group is not intended to replace the services of a physician, nor does it constitute a doctor-patient relationship. Always contact your doctor or other professional healthcare provider if you have a question concerning your or your family’s health.To participate in this group you must agree to this disclaimer.
