New FDA Announcement

Today the FDA announced updated Black Box warnings and an updated patient medication guide for all Fluoroquinolone antibiotics. This follows on the heals of their May 12th, 2016, announcement to change prescribing guidelines; that Fluoroquinolones not be prescribed for sinusitis, bronchitis and uncomplicated UTIs.

This is another big step in helping to make the medical profession aware of the serious disabling and often permanent side affects of these medications. PLEASE don't ever take them unless it's a life or death situation and all other options have failed. It only took four 500 mg pills of ciprofloxacin to ruin my health. Don't let this happen to you or someone you love. There are much safer alternatives available.

Yours in Health,



  1. Thank You Betsy! I had a severe reaction to four cipro pills as well on my last and final round of it.

    1. Your welcome Meghan! I only took cipro that one time. I've never had any other FQs either. Interesting how it affects so many so differently. Sad that it's such a devastating drug.
