Brooke K’s Story

Female 1In October 2012 I developed a septic infection following surgery for a rare pancreatic/biliary disorder called Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction.

For the first nine months I could barely walk and couldn’t lift my toddler or anything heavier than a loaf of bread. I’ll never forget that first… See full story

Greg S’s Story

male_1In 2009 I was very healthy. I commuted to work by bicycle, worked out at the gym 2-3x per week, and I hiked regularly (I had just hiked the 8,000 ft peak of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park the summer before), but I am typing this seated on the couch… the same position I’ve been in since March, 2010. Why? Because now virtually every tendon, ligament, and nerve in my body has been damaged by the antibiotic Cipro. In… See full story

Mary C’s Story

female_1I was diagnosed with severe peripheral neuropathy in 2008 and have lived with constant pain – 24/7 – the pain is always there — in the nerve endings, muscles and tendons. I had been researching all the meds that I took following an major abdominal infection at that time. It was definitely apparent that my pain and symptoms were drug side effects at the time but my searching was fruitless. I recently came across the references to Levaquin and Cipro… See full story

My nightmare first started when I was admitted into critical care with pulmonary failure. I noticed they kept changing bag after bag of Levaquin and Avelox vi IV over the course of a few days. The first symptom that I noticed was the sheer anxiety, panic and mental agony. I begged the nurse to please… See full story

Male 2Two years ago I took a drug called Ciprofloxacin for a suspected prostatitis. Even though all the test showed I did not have an infection, the urologist wanted me to take this antibiotic “just in case”.
