female_1May 2012 I purchased a hybrid bicycle for myself just prior to my fiftieth birthday. “No more excuses,” I told myself; “Its time to get fit and healthy again.” I began slowly, but worked up to riding twenty miles each outing, three to four evenings a week after work. But I was stuck at this level by what I thought was exercise-induced asthma. A hospitalist/friend recommended a local Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology specialist; Dr. K. I began to see him… See full story

Betsy H’s Story

female_1I was an active healthy mother of 3 who exercised regularly. Then I took 4 pills of Ciprofloxacin in Feb. of 2007 for sinusitis. I had a severe reaction. I had severe pressure in my head, couldn’t walk without holding onto something, was disoriented and extremely fatigued but couldn’t sleep. Once you stop taking the medication that made you sick you’ll be fine as long as you don’t take it again – right? That was what I thought. I was… See full story

Donna V’s Story

Female 1I was given Ciprofloxacin on April 4, 2012 for a UTI at the ER. I started having the feeling of mania and psychosis by the next day yet dismissed it thinking it was caused by starting a taper that week from Clonazepam.

I reinstated back to original dose of Clonazepam, got on computer and started researching, horrified in reading that taking… See full story
