Fluoroquinolones (FQ’s) are commonly and globally prescribed as a measure to cure bacterial infections in humans and animals. The list of the drug names is long, but the most well-known are Cipro, Levaquin and Avelox.
Fluoroquinolone antibiotics have shown to inhibit DNA replication much like chemotherapy. While all antibiotics carry a risk of side effects, the Fluoroquinolones have been discovered to have the potential to cause serious, permanent injuries and even death in some patients. The reactions can be body-wide, impacting the central nervous system, musculoskeletal, visual and renal systems, sometimes simultaneously.
Overuse of these potent antibiotics has been linked to antibiotic resistant infections.
Since May 12, 2016, The Food & Drug Administration advises that FQ antibiotics should be reserved for medical conditions only when there are no other options available due to potentially permanent and disabling adverse drug reactions. Fluoroquinolones Toxicity Study NFP
