The separate “Psychiatric Adverse Events” section was FINALLY added to the Levaquin label and it includes the additional psychiatric adverse events.
In this article I refute the smoking gun scenario, discuss why some people seemingly do not have adverse events, reveal why Cipro damages the brain, why they are still on the market, and, again, reiterate just how horribly damaging the FQ’s are to mitochondria.
Recently, in July 2018, Dr. Bennett published a paper about Fluoroquinolone Associated Suicide to the European Journal of Internal Medicine with the assistance of the floxed community.
A follow-up to my muscle biopsy from February 7th, 2017 and subsequent mitochondrial DNA sequencing.
In an astonishing statement from the FDA, they acknowledged that since “Psychiatric Effects” will specifically be identified within the “Central Nervous System Effects” subheading, psychiatric adverse events are automatically assumed to be part of the existing Black Box warning.
Adverse events added by the FDA are some of those requested by Dr. Bennett previously.
The FDA is strengthening the current warnings in the prescribing information that the fluoroquinolone antibiotics may cause significant decreases in blood sugar and certain mental health side effects.
Pharmaceutical companies hide, ignore, or misrepresent evidence about new drugs; distort the medical literature; and misrepresent products to prescribing physicians.
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..
It is promising that such a prestigious journal covered the controversy of the FQ's.
To those who are new to my plight or are unfamiliar with my personal situation, my life is delineated with a clear demarcation line. The life before taking Levaquin, a fluoroquinolone (FQ) antibiotic, and my life after. My healthy life before and my not so healthy life after. It is my story, my quin story, my life after Levaquin; Extremely healthy in one season, and a struggle with health the next.
After so many unremarkable tests, and so many years, some of the bigger pieces of the puzzle, for me, are starting to fall into place.
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.
Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics are Chemotherapeutic agents in their method of action and adverse event profile.
