Welllll…. I was prescribed Levaquin(Levofloxacin) a Fluoroquinolone, twice in 2003 along with 3 pills of Avelox(Moxifloxacin) also a Fluoroquinolone, making a total of just 20 pills, to treat the same sinus I’d been battling. No warning…. no discussion…. just told that this (Levaquin) was a “powerful antibiotic”…. I actually felt relieved, trusting that my Doctor really ca…red about my health. This was the first time I was ever diagnosed w/ a sinus infection…. I had never suffered anything more than a common cold or virus except for a bout of bronchitis once. I’ve always taken excellent care of myself, somewhat proud of staying active and physically fit well into my forties, and even after giving birth to twins at 40!!
You can read my actual words of horror and disbelief below…. this was originally an email I had sent to Gary Moller after reading an article he had written about Fluoroquinolones on his website. At that time, there were not too many online articles…. just mostly research articles or data. I had no idea he would publish my cry for help on his website, and in fact came across it by accident a few months after I had emailed him.
The words were from my heart…. the only thing I did not write was the subject line, which was added by Gary…. but I decided to leave it, since POISONING is what we’re dealing with as far as the Fluoroquinolones are concerned.
Also note that this was “just the beginning”……
Gary has since contacted me several times for follow-up. Feel free to post a Comment…. his page on the Fluoroquinolones could use a little action!! And we need all the exposure we can get!!
Thank you Tami for putting up this FB page as well. My heart goes out to every one of you!! United we can make a difference!!
Keep the FAITH ~~
