TuTu,

Thanks for keeping this topic out in the open and updating.

For those who want to read more, LymeToo has been instrumental in helping to spread the news about this with other articles here, too:

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=131279;p=0

Fluoroquinolones (Levaquin, Cipro, etc.) - LINKS set

For a more detailed look into this topic, it's alarming that so many have experienced devastating effects. It's not unusual at all.

Hello there,

<<<<< Lymetoo, and Keebler both >>>>>,

Thanks for the info on these dangerous ABX. I've had to take Cipro before, I didn't like it. I've been hearing some about Levaquin, if it is suggested for me I will say NO!!!

I have tendonitis,in both ankles,and one wrist now, I don't need more.

Important info' to keep handy.

I told Judie it was ok. Took it for months years ago. Made it out ok. Then just took again this year and it caused awful foot neuropathy. Feel awful I said it was ok to her, and didn't make the connection to myself until all these posts later. Now all I have is , " what can we do about the damage"?

Please. Any thoughts?

There are some recovery groups on Facebook and elsewhere. I haven't sought them out.

Other drugs in this class include:

Levaquin

Avelox

From day one of these kind of reports I`ve thought the problem is the drugs are killing spirochetes in the tendons/ligaments- one of their favorite places to be- if not THE favorite.

Look at his symptoms that flare up (herx?) a few days after he takes the meds. All sorts of Lyme symptoms!!!

Many can take Cipro, et al, without any problems, so could this be undiagnosed and some diagnosed Lyme patients having the problems?

Could it be the disease and not the drug? I don`t know.

I think part of it is genetics. There is a gene that makes it impossible for some to tolerate these drugs.

Levaquin and Cipro almost killed me. They made my Lyme Disease so much worse and fried my brain. Took me years to recover.
