Levaquin Tendonitis is not the same thing as 'regular' tendonitis. Fluoroquinolones like levaquin, levofloxacin, cipro, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, avelox, moxifloxacin, etc, cause all sort of symptoms including tendon pain, muscle pain, muscle weakness, muscle spasms/twitches/cramps, joint pain, symptoms that look/feel like regular tendonitis symptoms. But tendonitis from Levaquin is an entirely different animal than regular tendinitis. Fluoroquinolone toxicity is one result. Nutritional depletion is another. Mitochondrial damage and DNA damage or worse results. If you took levaquin or cipro and have tendonitis symptoms, you also have nutritional depletion (definitely) and quite possibly also have connective tissue mitochondria damage, and worse than that, connective tissue DNA damage. Also, if you have tendon pain (your tendon is affected), you MAY also have damage to connective tissue around any other joint(s) in the body, to the connective tissue in/around organs (including the brain), and possibly to the connective tissue around nerves. Levaquin tendonitis is bad news, and isn't really tendonitis. Find out more at https://www.TendonitisExpert.com/levaquin-tendonitis.html

In our video, we discussed how the antibiotic class of Fluoroquinolones can cause tendon tears in several areas of the body, especially the Achilles tendon. There are several types of Fluoroquinolones, including: ciprofloxacin (Cipro), levofloxacin (Levaquin), moxifloxacin (Avelox), ofloxacin (Floxin), and gemifloxacin (Factive). This class of antibiotics have often been used in the treatment of bronchitis, sinus infections, and urinary tract infections in the past. At this time, it has been recommended that the Fluoroquinolones class of antibiotics be used as a second or third line option for resistant bacterial infections due to the serious side effects. In my physical therapy practice, I've seen several cases of acute Achilles tendinopathy and complete Achilles tendon tears, from one week to six months, after taking a course of this type of antibiotic. This can occur in the highly active athletic population that is more prone to Achilles tendon problems and who typically assume Achilles tendon pain is related to their current training. The other high-risk group is more sedentary, less active individuals with poor tendon health and other co-morbidities such as diabetes. We've also seen these antibiotic side effects in tennis elbow and rotator cuff tendon problems. When initiating physical therapy with this population, you must take a very conservative approach in progressing the strengthening and stretching of the individual. In the cases of Achilles tendon tears and tendinopathies, occasionally we will provide heel lifts, ankle boots or orthotics. One of the difficulties in providing a proper diagnosis is noticing the causal relationship between taking the antibiotics and the resulting tendon pain or dysfunction. Often the patient doesn't link the two events and associates the pain with normal muscular skeletal pathology. In some cases, pain in the Achilles can also be related to a lumbar pathology or referred from a retro calcaneal bursitis, plantar fasciitis and / or ankle dysfunction. At my clinic, we guide patients through a McKenzie mechanical evaluation of the foot and ankle complex to rule out whether some of the Achilles pain is related to another structure in the foot and ankle complex. Upon completion of the evaluation, we hope to establish a movement or position that will increase a patient’s mobility and reduce their pain with certain movements and ultimately restore their ability to function. If you are unsure if you've taken this type of antibiotic, consulting with your pharmacy is a good first step. In cases where you suspect you may be having a side effect from this type of antibiotic, it is imperative that you discontinue any activity that produces pain and consult with a physician.

It is my opinion only, that the damage these antibiotics are causing to people's bodies may be partially or fully due to the drug's destruction of crucially important healthy forms of bacteria in the gut. This, along with leaky gut which I believe is epidemic, may cause both a fungal version of yeast called candida to breach the barrier in the gut, and give the immune system a particularly difficult time managing it, as well as oxalate to also permeate the entire body causing a potential double-whammy that if addressed, may reverse the condition. Lots to be pissed off about with this situation. But one biggie is in how people are being told this condition is permanent. Although I believe it can be difficult to reverse, I believe it is entirely possible if approached from the above theoretical standpoint. That is how I approached it, and have had tremendous results. See my programs as well as the free info over at http://MaintenanceMotions.com. If you have some organic expeller-pressed coconut oil...or oil of your choice according to options available via Ayurvedic tradition...I'd give oil pulling a try, sticking with it for a solid few months. I have found it to be incredibly effective for joint/tendon issues, with dietary change, gut health with probiotics, and candida management to offer profound improvements. I need to consistently maintain the effort, but it's a part of my lifestyle regardless. Then I added some high quality ubiquinol to assist with mitochondrial damage, and energy production. http://FacelessFatloss.com My Over 40 program: http://Over40andRipped.com And Facebook: http://facebook.com/tim.ripped Love, Happiness, Health and Peace.........Tim .

https://www.TendonitisExpert.com/levaquin-tendonitis.html Levaquin Tendonitis is NOT regular tendonitis. The Levaquin antibiotic, a member of the fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics (along with Cipro, Avelox, Levofloxacin, etc) attack a person's connective tissue structures and can even cause DNA damage. If you are suffering from Levaquin side effects, you MUST educate yourself about how Levaquin works and how to give your body it's best chance at being able to recover.

http://gacovinolake.com/avelox-cipro-levaquin-side-effects/ Three popular drugs -- Avelox, Cipro and Levaquin -- are super-heavyweights in the fight against serious bacterial diseases that plague humans. These powerful medications belong to a class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. They are highly effective in fighting hospital-acquired infections that can be resilient to lower-grade antibiotics. Avelox, Cipro and Levaquin are extremely potent and have become a popular prescription for common ailments such as ear and sinus infections. These drugs are so popular that in 2010, Bayer’s Avelox and Cipro brought in $1 billion in sales while Johnson & Johnson’s Levaquin brought in 1.3 billion. The benefit to thousands of consumers comes at a very steep price. The powerful medications eliminate infection but leave many consumers with a terrible condition known as peripheral neuropathy.

Levofloxacin comes in 250, 500 and 750 mg tables; 25 mg/mL oral solution. Levofloxacin is an antibiotic most commonly used to treat bacterial infections. No matter what your doctor has you taking it for, levofloxacin is usually taken by mouth with or without food most commonly once a day. Do not take this drug with dairy products, like milk or yogurt, or calcium rich juices. Take levofloxacin at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after antacids, sucarlfate, quinapril, bismuth, multivitamins, or any other products that contain magnesium, calcium, aluminum, iron, or zinc. If upset stomach occurs take levofloxacin with food. If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you think about it. If it is close to time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your normal dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at the same time or extra doses. Some common side effects with levofloxacin include headache, upset stomach, diarrhea and sun burning more easily. Some less common side effects with levofloxacin include ringing in the ears, tendon rupture (greater in people over the age of 60), nerve problems and nervous system problems. (Flash on screen this is not a complete list of side effects) Do not take levofloxacin if: you have myasthenia gravis. While taking levofloxacin, remember it is important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have: • Signs of an allergic reaction (rash, itching, swelling, tightness of the chest, etc.) • An allergy to levofloxacin. • If you pain, bruising, or swelling in the back of the ankle, shoulder, hand, or other joints. • If you are unable to move or bear weight on a joint, hear or feel a snap or pop. • If you develop nerve problems such as not being able to handle heat or cold, changes in sense of touch, burning, numbness, tingling, pain or weakness in the arms, heads, legs or feet. • If you develop nervous system problems such as anxiety, bad dreams, trouble sleeping, changes in eyesight, dizziness, feeling confused, nervous, agitated, restless or experience hallucinations. • If you develop a rash; hives; itching; shortness of breath; wheezing; cough; swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat; or any other signs that could be signs of an allergic reaction. • If your symptoms do not get better or if they worsen, call your doctor. All forms of levofloxacin including the liquid needs to be stored at room temperature in a dry place. Use the measuring device received from the pharmacist or doctor for the oral solution. Thank you for watching and remember to tell your doctor and pharmacist about your health problems, all drugs including over the counter drugs, natural products, and vitamins for your safety before starting a new drug. Do not stop, start, or change the dose of any drug without checking with your doctor.

Website link: http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2015/04/07/local-doctors-explain-risks-of-taking-levaquin/ Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CBSPittsburgh April 7, 2015 5:45 PM on CBS Pittsburgh PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Some swear by them, others say they’re dangerous – if not deadly. KDKA-TV health editor Dr. Maria Simbra explains why some are calling for a closer look at a certain group of antibiotics. From time-to-time, Janice Olszewski’s mother, Mary, needs to take antibiotics for urinary tract infections. “She gets very weak, she gets sick. Sometimes, she’ll get disoriented,” Olszewski said. Her doctor prescribed a medicine called Levaquin. “He said it would help clear the infection, and we should get fairly quick results with it. It’s been a Godsend for us,” Olszewski said. “If it wouldn’t be for Levaquin, we’d have a hard time managing her health care. “I’d say 20-30 times a year, we give a prescription for levofloxacin,” Dr. Marc Itskowitz of Allegheny General Hospital’s Internal Medicine said. “We try to reserve it for patients who need a broader spectrum antibiotic, may have been exposed to other antibiotics and are still sick. It’s very effective in those patients.” Taking it by mouth works the same as taking it by IV. It also comes in an easy-to-swallow liquid. While it kept Janice’s mother out of the hospital, not everyone has had a good experience. Karen Paddock was taking out the garbage when she cut her leg on a broken dish in the trash bag. She got stitches, followed by infection of the skin – cellulitis. “At that point, they gave her the Levaquin antibiotics for the cellulitis,” Bob Paddock said. Six months later, she developed tendon troubles and couldn’t walk. “It was in 2003, and at that point, I’m not sure all the risks that are known today were known then,” Paddock said. After ten years of using a scooter around the house in chronic pain, at age 43, she committed suicide – four days shy of her 20th wedding anniversary. Her husband has strong hopes for all similar antibiotics. “That they either get taken off the market, or they get a whole lot harder for anybody to prescribe,” he said. Levaquin, generically known as levofloxacin, is in a class of drugs called fluoroquinolones. They work by attacking bacterial DNA, making the bacteria unable to multiply. Known risks include nerve problems and tendon rupture. Fluoroquinolones are not recommended for people taking steroids, people with a history of seizures, and people with certain heart rhythm abnormalities. Pharmaceutical watchdog Dr. Charles Bennett is trying to expand the warnings by bringing a citizen’s petition to the FDA. “I’ve been doing this work so long, that I think patients find me,” Dr. Bennett said. His focus is the rare complication of mitochondrial toxicity. You can think of mitochondria as your cells’ battery packs. Without them, your cells have no energy. He said if an event happens right after the medicine is given, that would be a reaction. He also has lab researchers who have been able to recreate symptoms in mice. “There’s a little bit of an art, rather than a science. There’s not a specific diagnostic test,” he said. He would like to expand the black box warning on Levaquin, or establish a process so that patients must sign that they understand the risks of the drug. “This would make Levaquin a little bit less attractive to use if it goes through as a black box warning,” Dr. Amesh Adalja, of the UPMC Center for Health Securit, said. This infectious disease specialist said the class of antibiotics does have a role to play, but shouldn’t be prescribed automatically. “Even if you’re prescribing penicillin, it’s something you have to do with each infection that you treat. You have to make sure is this the right bug that you’re treating, and is this the right drug that you’re using,” Dr. Adalja said. “For every patient that has been harmed by a medication, there are thousands that have been helped by it. And we don’t often hear from them,” Dr. Itskowitz said. “She’s had adverse reactions in the past to numerous drugs, so we’re always very alert to those types of reactions. And we felt the risks were minimal,” Olszewski said. Hearing from Olszewski, she’s thankful her mother had the option of Levaquin. “Within a couple of days, she starts to feel better,” she said.

Don't become another victim of fluoroquinolone antibiotics (Levaquin, Cipro, Avelox, etc)! Demand something SAFER. Something that doesn't have the propensity to cripple you for life. The doctor in this video claims they don't have other options, but that is simply not true. Most doctors are just lazy & therefore reach for the 'big guns' right off the bat without ever trying any of the safer antibiotics first. This all too often results is people becoming crippled over things as simple as a urinary tract or sinus infection. It's YOUR body, YOUR health, YOUR life--YOU'RE the one who will have to live with the consequences of these poisonous drugs, so don't let your doctor bully you into taking them unless it's a life-or-death situation and you've exhausted all other (safer) options. When it comes to fluoroquinolone antibiotics, the cure is often much worse than the disease!

These Antibiotics Cause Nerve Damage And Lifelong Disability The Fluoroquinolones are a group of antibiotics that are usually prescribed for urinary tract infections and respiratory infections, but these antibiotic can cause serious nerve damage. These antibiotics were given to more than 23 million patients in 2011. Fluoroquinolones include: Ofloxacin (Floxin) Norfloxacin (Noroxin) Moxifloxacin (Avelox) Levofloxacin (Levaquin) Gemifloxacin(Factive) Ciprofloxacin (Cipro) The FDA required an update on the labels of these drugs, their side effects of peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy This antibiotic kills the bacteria that cause the illness. But according to new research, the risks of these medications are more than the benefits of it. Peripheral neuropathy is when the nerves which send the information are damaged. This damage disables the connection. People with peripheral neuropathy can feel numbness, burning pain in the legs or the arms and tingling. These medications can cause long-lasting damage to the nerves and this can lead to disability. They can get into the blood-brain barrier and this leads to getting into the brain and damaging the central nervous system. In 2010 Levaquin was the most selling antibiotic and by 2011 had more than 2000 lawsuits from patients. SYMPTOMS AND SIDE EFFECTS You will feel the symptoms after only a few days, and you should contact medical help immediately. The symptoms are: Tingling Numbness Burning Weakness Rupture and tendon damage Shooting pains Confusion Muscle and joint pain Hallucinations NATURAL TREATMENT For sinus infection drink a lot of water and teas. You can prepare a natural remedy with lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. And for UTI you must also drink water and teas and take probiotics like kefir, yogurt, kombucha etc. Watch the video for more information.

This is a continuation of the tragedy that Floxin, similar to Levaquin, did to Paul C. from New Jersey. He had 2 tendon ruptures, severe neuropathy develop, and has been in pain 24/7 for 10 years, and is still alive, and suffering. I used to be an active mountain climber, lover of outdoor sports and nature, and this mis-labeled drug has turned a healthy life into a depressing and painful one full of loss of quality of life. no more skiing, no more walking through the birch forests of Maine. This drug should never be used as a first line defence against common infections, and the Company that makes it, J&J, and the FDA should be ashamed of themselves and held liable. I did not have a rare reaction, thousands, of others are hurting too, and now in countries throughout the world. Why have letters been sent to doctors about this in Europe, and not in the US.

Achilles Tendon Ruptures and Antibiotics: A Case Study - New York Attorney Matthew McCauley explains more at: https://www.yourlawyer.com/defective-drug-attorneys/ Watch as attorney Matthew McCauley of Parker Waichman recalls the case of John, an avid golfer who was detrimentally harmed by the side effects of his prescription drugs. For a gentleman in his late 80s, John is extremely active. He's a World War II veteran and a golf fanatic who loves to teach others the game and play with this family. So it was devastating to him when the antibiotics he was taking actually caused his Achilles heel to rupture. These tendon injuries and ruptures are becoming associated with the antibiotics such as Cipro and Levaquin. The injuries can occur with a patient's Achilles heel, shoulder, hand, thumb, or biceps. Obviously this can be extremely painful and for people like John, these injuries can keep you from something you love. Understanding that an injury may come from a prescription drug takes a lot of research and insight into the medical history of both the drug and the patient. As a paramedic, attorney Matthew McCauley can assist our clients with not only the legal knowledge but can look at their injuries from the patient's perspective as well.

NBC Charlotte 6:09 a.m. EST February 25, 2015 http://www.wcnc.com/story/news/health/2015/02/24/devastating-side-effects-prompt-local-push-to-ban-antibiotic/23977183/ It is a commonly prescribed antibiotic-- doctors offer it for everything from urinary tract infections to sinus infections. But a local mom is pushing to get Levaquin off the shelves after she suffered devastating side effects. And a drug watchdog group is pushing the FDA for tougher warning labels. Shannon Myers is trying to slyly wrap his Valentine's day gift for wife Adrienne. The two are very much in love and very much a team– no matter what. "Every day you push through it, you push through it because you have to," Adrienne says. Adrienne endures grueling physical therapy several times a week; the 36-year-old mother of two struggles to walk. "It's very painful for me, just because my Achilles hurts really bad, so in order for me to not lose strength in my legs, I have to do this. I just have to bear the pain." It started last summer. Adrienne was diagnosed with a sinus infection; doctors prescribed Levaquin, the brand name for a drug called Levofloaxacin. A few days into the prescription she says, "I started having issues with my legs-- my legs hurt, they burn, felt like I walked up hill all day, my feet hurt, I had problems with my eyes, my vision started becoming kind of blurred." It took three months and four doctors to come up with a diagnosis. Dr. Ki Jung, Adrienne's neurologist, says the Levaquin caused tendinopathy and peripheral neuropathy. He says he helped rule other things out and worked on a timeline to figure out what happened. Jung says, "I told Adrienne, let's put a timeline to this and see where we are and then see if we can tease out any correlations; that's really where we were able to get to the notion that this was a Levaquin problem." "So basically the drug attacked her nerves and tendons?" "Correct, in terms of a side effect profile." Adrienne was shocked. "He said unfortunately you have nerve damage from taking Levaquin." Dr. Charles Bennett chairs a drug watchdog agency at the University of South Carolina. He was not at all surprised to hear Adrienne's story. "I'm not surprised. I've been working on this for years. This woman is a story that's replicated in city after city, case after case." He recently petitioned the FDA for new, what's called black box warnings for Levaquin, those are bold warnings meant to grab your attention. The FDA already required black box warnings in 2008, warning of possible tendon rupture and muscle weakness. And in 2013 the FDA required a label change warning of nerve damage. Bennett says the FDA's own stats show 1200 people have died and nearly 100,000 have suffered side effects from Levaquin or Levofloaxcin. "Thankfully it's not life threatening for me. I'm very fortunate that it has not been a life threatening thing for me, so I think about the positive and hopefully my nerves will regenerate themselves and become healthy again," Adrienne says. Her husband Shannon just wishes he could take away her pain. "It makes you wish, just like anybody you love, you could go back and do something about it. Like wish you had more time, researched more, maybe take it off her shoulders a little bit and put it on yours." NBC Charlotte reached out to Levaquin for a statement. They responded Tuesday evening: "LEVAQUIN® (levofloxacin) Tablets is part of an important class of anti-infective prescription medications that have been used for more than 20 years to treat infections, including those that may be serious or life threatening. When used according to the product labeling, LEVAQUIN® has been proven to have a favorable benefit-risk profile." The best advice: ask your doctor and your pharmacist to go over the possible side effects of this drug-- or any other for that matter, and if you have concerns, ask for an alternative.

DNA damage from Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics after only 3.61 minutes (in vitro)! A global problem? https://www.facebook.com/Fluoroquinolone-Toxicity-Study-NFP-144478016244899/?ref=bookmarks https://fq100.org Out of desperation and complete exhaustion from continuing discrepancies with powerful pharmaceutical lobbyists and their connections, our Foundation has chosen online media to reveal test results of our personal DNA study in hope to spread the warning on severe, often irreversible, side effects due to antibiotic drugs people are prescribed daily. This warning is for genomic and mitochondrial (your cell powerhouse) DNA damage from the Fluoroquinolone (FQ) antibiotics family. The most popular are Ciprofloxacin (Cipro), Levofloxacin (Levaquin) and Moxifloxacin (Avelox). These antibiotics have been on the market for over 30 years and prescribed to millions worldwide as well as found in fertilizer, animal and fish farming, veterinary clinics and given in surgery IV’s. All FQ associated scientific publications since the 1980’s relating to the following topics have been largely ignored by government agencies thus far: DNA, mitochondrial and nerve damage, psychiatric disorders, reproductive malfunction, chromosomal abnormality, collagen destruction, aneurysms, multi organ failure, retinal detachment, cell toxicity, genetic damage, muscle atrophy, metabolic dysfunction, etc. In May 2014, a group of victim activists presented laboratory results indicating FQ DNA damage to government officials and the Senate Health Committee in Washington. We had great hope that those test results would be forwarded to the appropriate government agencies to take further steps to stop the widespread usage of these antibiotics; no such gesture was made. For two decades up until the end of his life, Dr. Jay S. Cohen warned colleagues and the public about psychological and neurological damage from FQ drugs. He sent multiple petitions to Congress and the Senate to no avail. Dr. Charles Bennett spent years studying hundreds of patients with FQ toxicity. His petition about possible mitochondrial damage was denied by the FDA. In 2016, hundreds of FQ related science publications and test results demonstrating FQ DNA damage were sent to an attorney representing one of the Fluoroquinolone manufacturers. No response was ever received. In 2017, a larger group of FQ victims were tested by mass spectrometry* (analytical technique) for nuclear and mitochondrial DNA adducts (DNA bonded to a chemical). The study tested for Ciprofloxacin and Levofloxacin. Out of the numerous test results we had patient permission to access on these two drugs, all showed genomic (nuclear) and mitochondrial DNA FQ adducts. DNA damage was also detectable decades after the original exposure and by single or multiple oral doses, IV or ear drop forms. Furthermore, the lab performed an in vitro (test tube) test and DNA damage appeared in just 3.61 minutes after antibiotic introduction. DNA adducts are considered abnormal, thus preventing healthy cellular and mitochondria replication! We are asking for people to spread the information contained here and in our video, as well as urge the use of these antibiotics in life or death situations only. The Foundation is appealing to medical and science groups to help with further research and independent studies directed towards finding a treatment on a cellular level. We are requesting serious government action to hold the responsible entities accountable for the millions of people suffering decades due to these drugs. As Americans, we believe in democracy and a government that works to protect and serve the citizens as well as heavily monitor pharmaceutical companies. Please watch this important video on side effects, DNA test results and victim photos. If you feel you have experienced serious drug repercussions, please file a complaint with the FDA and find online support with Facebook groups.

These antibiotics have been associated with increased risks of tendon ruptures. Antibiotic-associated diarrhea can occur when you take antibiotics. These medications can alter the normal bacteria in the G.I. system. In order to decrease your chance of having diarrhea, your doctor can keep the duration of antibiotic treatment as short as possible that still eliminates the infection. Antibiotics that have been linked to photosensitivity are a concern for anyone who plays outdoor sports or exercises outside. Tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones and sulfa drugs are believed to carry this risk. It is possible that you could develop a serious sunburn on body parts exposed to the sun or have an increased risk of skin cancer if you use these medications. Theoretically you should avoid these antibiotics or use sunscreen and wear fully protective clothing. By no means does this list of concerns represent medical advice. If you have an infection and require antibiotic treatment, you should ask the doctor about possible complications with those drugs, especially as they pertain to exercise and sports. Please remember, while I appreciate your questions, I cannot and will not offer specific medical advice by email, online, on my show, or in the comments at the end of these posts. My responses are meant to provide general medical information and education. Please consult your physician or health care provider for your specific medical concerns.

From Maryland - The FDA is warning that the popular class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones, which includes Cipro and Avelox, may raise the risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture. While tendon rupture is seen in about 1 in 100,000 people, use of these medicines appears to triple the risk. Most cases appear to affect the Achilles tendon. From Malawi - In developing nations, infants born to HIV positive mothers are at risk for becoming HIV positive through exposure to breast milk. According to research in the New England Journal of Medicine, use of antiretrovirals for an extended period of time can lower the risk of HIV transmission by 50%. However, with continued breast feeding, the risk of transmission remains present. And finally, back to Maryland - The FDA has approved a diagnostic test that can assist doctors in deciding when to offer Herceptin to patients with breast cancer. The test, called SPOT-Light, requires a small tissue sample from the tumor, and detects HER2 mutations which affect about a quarter of women with breast cancer. The test may eliminate the need for assays that involve the more complex FISH test. For Insidermedicine in 60, I'm Allison Chow.

Which antibiotic should you try to avoid taking, if possible…next Side effects of fluoroquinolones far more disabling than other antibiotics, experts say Idelle Davidson writing in the Washington Post reported on the side effects of fluoroquinolones, noting that levofloxacin ranked third “in the number of serious adverse event reports submitted directly to the Food and Drug Administration in 2013,” while ciprofloxacin, another fluoroquinolone, ranked fifth, according to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices. Experts say that fluoroquinolones “can be far more disabling than other antibiotics” because of the life-altering nature of their side effects, which include tendon rupture, disabling peripheral neuropathy or permanent nerve damage to the arms and legs, eye disorders, psychiatric and nervous system disorders, seizures, ringing in the ears, and burning and tingling sensations. Comment: I have seen a number of tendon issues associated with these fluoroquinolone antibiotics.

WSET-TV Mar 30, 2015 11:03 PM Lynchburg, VA - Popular antibiotics used to treat common infections may be causing permanent damage. Fluoroquinolones have been at the center of more than 2-thousand lawsuits in the past year. They are among the most commonly prescribed antibiotics. Levaquin and Cipro are the big ones, and are used to treat everything from anthrax to a simple sinus or urinary track infection. "The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, which can happen with any antibiotics" said Stephanie Puckett, Director of Clinical Pharmacy Services at Centra. Yet unlike other antibiotics, Fluoroquinolones come with a special 'black box' warning. That's the FDA's strictest warning, alerting patients of the possible nerve and tendon damage the antibiotic can cause. "I would consider the Fluoroquinolones a very strong or potent class of antibiotics because they do cover a large variety of organisms" said Puckett. But patients around the country say these prescription drugs carry more serious side effects than are listed on the label, including psychological effects. They have banded together on the Facebook page "The Fluoroquinolone Wall of Pain", to push the FDA for stronger warnings. Group member Wayne Smith says he only took Levaquin for 3 days and suffered from "depression from hell, crying all day and night for no reason at all… Panic attacks, 24/7 anxiety that would not stop." Similarly Lana Kennedy says she was "in a state of extreme confusion & began experiencing severe panic attacks" after taking Cipro. Patients filed a citizen's petition asking the FDA to expand its warning on Fluoroquinolones. The new warning would include other reported side effects like damage to mitochondria in cells and psychological effects. The FDA says "they are considering the matters raised by the petition and giving it [their} careful attention."

PLEASE EXPAND FOR IMPORTANT INFORMATION- This is a documentary about my health, coming out of remission, and living life. There is no cure for my condition, but there is hope. Please read my bio on my YouTube Page-http://www.youtube.com/user/Bonnie90505 Watch-Back On Enbrel-Oct 3, 2009 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byrmA9Sih5g Watch-Certain Antibiotics Spur Widening Reports of Severe Side Effects http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/health/jan-june11/antibiotics_06-16.html I had a "possible" reaction to antibiotic-Leviquin and Avelox From http://www.antibiotics.org The Food and Drug Administration imposed the government's most urgent safety warning on Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox and many other flouroquinolone antibiotics. The FDA orders a prominent "black box" warning and the development of new literature for patients emphasizing the risks. The most prominent risk is tendon rupture causing long term disability, possibly permanent. This is an important first step to ensuring these antibiotics are only used when the patient faces a potential fatal outcome, and only after the use of all other antibiotics have been ruled out. This is not due to the probability of risk, but rather severity. To those who have been affected, prognosis is normally not good. There is no cure. Often repeat exposure through food and water cause a continual never ending cycle of symptoms. Many victims face the fact that their lives have been completely destroyed. Many face loss of job and income, some face breakup of the family. Some have even committed suicide because of the pain inflicted by these drugs. Unfortunately, physicians currently give these prescriptions out like candy. To emphasize the ignorance of physicians, Cipro is often prescribed post-op for tendon repair surgery. The physician will often prescribe a drug known to cause tendon rupture as a preventive to infection after tendon repair surgery. There is an obvious neglect on the part of the physicians who simply do not known the potential dangers of the drugs they prescribe. So where is the breakdown of information? Unfortunately many physicians mistakenly rely on pharmaceutical drug reps to point out any potential side effects rather than investigating it themselves. Further implicating the physicians, they accept gifts from drug companies and in return will prescribe unnecessary and dangerous substances. Drug Reps, paid on commission, find themselves making more sales by not disclosing the dangers, or make light of potential side effects. Making the problem worse, the drug manufactures trivialize and distort the potential risks. A pending U.S. Senate bill would require drug companies to report gifts to doctors of more than $25. New York State's legislature plans to hold hearings this year on the relationship between doctors and drug companies. One congressional critic has even compared the drug industry with the tobacco industry, and Senator John McCain has called drugmakers the "bad guys."

Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is taking the controversial antibiotic, Levaquin, according to medical information released by her team this week. https://m.hrc.onl/secretary/10-documents/05-physician-letter/HRC_physician_letter.pdf Clinton, who was diagnosed with pneumonia, is on a 10 day supply of Levaquin. Levaquin is the brand name for levofloxacin, which is part of a class of drugs called fluoroquinolones, intended to treat major infections like pneumonia, anthrax exposure, plague and urinary tract infections. Call 6 Investigates has been looking into potential safety issues with the drug, including devastating side effects like tendon rupture, nerve damage and psychiatric problems. In July, the Food and Drug Administration officially approved safety labeling changes for fluoroquinolones including an updated “boxed warning,” also known as a black box warning, which is the FDA’s most serious type of warning mandated by the agency. The warnings advise patients that the serious side effects generally outweigh the benefits for patients with sinus infections, chronic bronchitis, and urinary tract infections, and fluoroquinolones should be used as a last resort. An FDA safety review found the drugs can cause serious, disabling, and potentially permanent side effects involving the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves and central nervous system. Call 6 Investigates reached out to the Clinton campaign, but they have not yet responded, so it’s unclear if Clinton was aware of the new FDA “black box” warnings when she started taking Levaquin. Dr. Charles Bennett, a vocal critic of Levaquin who has not treated Clinton, said her doctors should examine the presidential candidate for possible side effects including muscle weakness. Clinton recently raised concerns when she appeared to struggled to walk while leaving a 9/11 ceremony. “It could be a serious drug reaction,” said Bennett. “The best thing to do is stop the drug, I would suggest, if it’s a potential serious adverse drug reaction. You can use many other antibiotics for pneumonia. I would defer to her physicians there.” Bennett said he is surprised Hillary Clinton was prescribed Levaquin, given the recent label changes and serious side effect concerns. “Our data estimates the FDA receives several thousand reports per year of this toxicity, and several thousand deaths,” said Bennett. “This is equivalent to a 747 plane going down once a month.”
