I want to continue to use my blog to warn Georgia consumers of dangerous medications when it becomes apparent that a particular drug either is more dangerous than it is helpful, or that the side effects of a drug are so severe that it calls into question using the drug in the first place. Such may be the case with the drugs Cipro and Levaquin, both common antibiotics. If you are taking Cipro or Levaquin, this warrants discussion with your physician who is prescribing it.
Apparently, despite the risk, these drugs remain popular in the medical community to prescribe for infections. Many patients are not even aware of the risks associated with them, and many doctors are not telling their patients of the risks. It shouldn’t be this way. Physicians should be telling their patients when they prescribe a drug all known possible side effects and give their patients as much information as possible when prescribing any drug.
