Laura L’s Story

Female 8My story begins at the age of 40 and a trip to an after hours health clinic. I had a urinary tract infection and was prescribed Cipro. Seven days into the ten day script, I felt a funny tingling sensation in my right leg. That progressed to both legs and both arms and went from tingling to a very painful cold, burning. I am now 49 years old and the cold burning is STILL there. In addition, I’ve got severe… See full story

Female 1I have went online and made my complaint. I won’t go into all the details of what my mind and body is doing, just know that all the symptoms of this FQ I have. I am in a nightmare I cannot escape from, no matter how hard I try. I was a Master Cosmetologist, well still am; just not active. To many people’s surprise you have to have a good working knowledge of the human body to carry a license… See full story

Female 2I was a normal, moderately active person….a young 62 year old, I was often told. That all changed on Saturday, September 7, 2013, the third day of taking an antibiotic. Around 11:00 am I walked outside to do some light yard work. I was feeling good. By 12:00 pm….one hour later I had to crawl my way back into my house. Feeling crippled and 20 years older. What had I done? I swept the sidewalk, potted some plants, and pulled… See full story

Elizabeth A’s Story

Female 4In the spring of 2015, I had yet another UTI. I went to a urologist who wanted to give me Cipro. I asked if there was another option and he said NO. I now realize that wasn’t true at all. Urologists love to give Cipro out for UTI’s. Since I believed him that there were no other options, I proceeded to take the medication. I had been having chronic UTI’s for nearly a decade and I had noticed that when… See full story

Female 8In February 2014, I was prescribed 750mg of Levofloxacin for 5 days for suspected bronchitis that was lingering. After the 3rd pill, I started to feel “off” and not myself with general malaise.

My husband rushed me to the ER, and my heart rate and blood… See full story

Female 1I am a 46 year old woman. For the past year I have struggled with the damage done to me by a ten day course of Ciprofloxacin 500mg BID, taken from October 1-10, 2014. It was prescribed for an uncomplicated bout of seasonal bronchitis. There was no indication whether the bronchitis was viral or bacterial in nature. The decision to prescribe a fluoroquinolone antibiotic was made by my physician without any suggestion that perhaps it was unwarranted; no thought was… See full story

Thirty minutes after taking the last dose on January 12, 2014, I had hives on my face and my hands and feet began to swell. I went to the ER and by the time I was seen, I could barely walk.
