Judith T’s Story

Female 2Little did I know in 2004 when I was prescribed a round of Cipro for a UTI that this drug would rear its ugly head again when I was prescribed another round of it in 2011.

I was lucky, or unlucky, to find a physician to treat me and was prescribed a round of Cipro. After returning home, about… See full story

Carrie J’s Story

Female 4One year ago in Oct. I was diagnosed with a sinus infection. I was prescribed generic Levaquin. On just day 3 of taking it, I started experiencing leg pain. I thought I was coming down with a virus. On day 6 of taking it, when my legs kept getting worse and not better I went on the internet and read about side affects from this medicine. I realized that my leg pain/achiness was from the antibiotic. I decided not to… See full story

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

Darlene D’s 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.

Michael K’s Story

male_1Summary: Levaquin damaged my Mitochondria and Autonomic Nervous System causing significant issue across most of my organs and systems and unspeakable pain that lasts to this day. My list of concurrent symptoms covers most of my major systems and is far too long to list here.

Dee J’s 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
