Dear Friends,

Here's a link to a very important article about Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox, and Floxin.

There is also a 6-part video.

Apparently, these drugs all contain FLUORIDE, which is a known neurotoxin that can get into the brain, etc.

Hope this helps!!

Best,

Cass A

Wow. You know, I took 1 Cipro a couple of nights ago and then got on herE and after reading about what happened to some people, I didn't even take another one. Now, thanks to this, I for sure won't take another one. THANK YOU!!!

So, THAT'S how these antibiotics get into the brain and tissues so well.... they attached a fluoride molocule to the old quinolone abx....

Not good.

(Cass, you might want to correct the spelling of 'FLORIDE' in your original post. I looked all over trying to find something on the Net about 'floride'.... and then I read the article.) [Smile]

I watched the videos yesterday. Yikes! The people sound like Lyme Disease patients.

I was on Cipro in April 2000 post op for several weeks. I didn't notice anything negative, actually felt really happy for awhile after (now I believe it was hitting Bart which I didn't even know I had Lyme back then).

I feel really badly for these people with adverse reactions, very scary indeed. I do agree that too many people though in US take a pill without thinking about possible reactions. I am at the extreme, worrying too much about a possible reaction!

Thanks for posting this, bummed me out when I watched it because I was really thinking of trying Cipro again to see how it would make me feel, LLMD said I could try it if I wanted to.

Take care,
Ocean

The thing is, people doing treatment for Lyme would interpret these drug reactions as "herxes."

Or, is it possible that some of the reactions really do consitute some sort of die-off effect (especially from drugs actually reaching the brain)?

Do people still give their infants fluoride drops, by the way? Is the amount of fluoride in the abx greater than the amount in those drops?
Just wondering...

If you believe in homeopathy, find a homeopathic that knows what tautopathy is. Remedies provided through tautopathy can supposedly override the residual effects antibiotics leave on the body.

Shosty,

I don't know about infants, but I know they gave me fluoride drops for my kids.

I hardly ever remembered to give them to them though.

We have well water, and so they didn't get the usual fluoride dose that's in city water--dentists have told me that's why my older son's teeth are so bad.

But my teeth were bad too, and I had the fluoridated water, and my younger son's teeth are fine, and he doesn't get fluoride either.

I was just making the point that pediatricians recommend fluoride for babies and kids, but this post says that fluoride is toxic. Is there an explanation of this contradiction?

If you are prescribed a floroquinoline and are concerned, you should talk to your doctor about it. There are risks with almost every treatment and there are risks with not treating illnesses.

Most LLMDs have years of experience in treating Lyme and associated diseases and have experience using these drugs with positive results. Most also know the risks and what symptoms to look out for.

Treatment decisions are often made by doing an analysis of risk versus benefit. I wish there was no risk to treatment, but that is not the case.

For those of us not on disability who must work to live to pay our doctors, that risk is too big.
