Can You Tell Who is Going to Have an Adverse Event to The FQ’s?

No.  And that is what makes these drugs so insidious.  There is still not enough known about ‘how’ the FQ’s damage the human body to develop a test to determine who will have a bad reaction or adverse event. Oh sure, there are some factors that seem to play into an adverse event such as CYP polymorphisms and many, many ways identified that the FQ’s can damage the body, but so far none has proven universal enough to developing an accurate test.
