Floxie Hope

This site is to give HOPE to those who are suffering from Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome as a result of being poisoned by fluoroquinolone antibiotics – Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox, Floxin, etc.  It contains stories of healing.

Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox and all other fluoroquinolones are dangerous drugs that can have devastating effects that cumulatively I’ll refer to as Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome or Floxing.  Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome/Floxing includes damage to connective tissue (tendons, ligaments, cartilage, fascia, etc.) throughout the body, damage to the nervous systems (central, peripheral and autonomic), and more. The damage done by fluoroquinolone antibiotics can destroy a person’s quality of life or even kill them. Certainly, there is a time and a place for drugs with dangerous side effects. If you find yourself in a septic shock induced coma, fluoroquinolones may save your life. Unfortunately, these drugs are not being reserved for life or death situations. People are being prescribed them for urinary tract infections, suspected prostate infections, upper respiratory infections, as a prophylactic for travelers’ diarrhea, ear infections, pink eye, etc. Thousands of people have suffered needlessly from the devastating effects of fluoroquinolone antibiotics, when another, safer antibiotic could have, and should have, been used.

The damage done by fluoroquinolones is largely unacknowledged by the medical establishment and an accurate diagnosis, compensation and relief are difficult to come by. There is no known cure for Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome/Floxing.  However, many people continue to LIVE after being poisoned by fluroquinolones.  They find healing, recovery, perseverance, compassion and hope.  These are their stories.

This site is meant to give hope for healing to those who are adversely effected by fluoroquinolones.  It is no way meant to disregard the pain of those who are chronically suffering from the horrifying effects of Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox or the other fluoroquinolones.  There are people who don’t recover.  Their stories are real and they matter.  There are also people who are able to recover and I share their stories with the hope that they inspire others, or at least give hope that recovery is possible.

Here is a New York Times article about the dangers of fluoroquinolone antibiotics – http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/10/popular-antibiotics-may-carry-serious-side-effects/?_r=0 – more news stories, research papers and other resources can be found on the “Links and Resources” page.

Here is a Facebook group that is a great resource for those going through Fluoroquinolone Toxicity – https://www.facebook.com/groups/floxies/

Featured post – I’m floxed. Now what?

The Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Solution Ebook has helped many Floxies to recover, including DanielCindy and Ruth.  As a bonus, you will also receive The Floxie Food Guide – a book of diet guidelines to help you through fluoroquinolone toxicity:

    I just emailed Obama, regarding my disgust, rage, really, over having to suffer, to my death, for MArgaret Hamburgs evil greed, and, I think every floxxed person, should do the same, daily email him. We should also be tweeting, like mAd, re, this hitler like, mass murdering goon,

      I have now sent the white about a dozen messages on this. I have written Obama several times, Biden twice and Michelle as well. Yes, I think EVERYONE should right and tell them how corrupt the FDA is and how fluorquinolones have killed over 300,000 and devastated the lives of millions.

    The system is rigged, the highjacking of medical schools began when Rockerfeller sent his infiltrators at the turn of the last century into the major medical schools to take out all education that was not allopathic, what we have today is not medicine, it is a mafia run by psychopaths, do not kid yourselves people, beware and be careful, ask a lot of questions.

      I’d just be careful about supplementing vitamin b12 as it is the only one of the b vitamins that actually gets stored in the body and the excess does not get secreted in the urine like all the water soluble vitamins. I stopped taking b12 after i was tested for it and it was 1600 – double the normal range.

      B12 is contra indicated in certain conditions. It can cause cancer.

    Cyanocobalamin is a cheap, synthetic chemical made in a laboratory. It’s virtually impossible for you to find this form in nature. Low-end vitamin manufacturers use it because it can be bought in bulk and added to products with claims that they “contain vitamin B-12!” What they don’t tell you is that the vitamin is bound to a toxic, poisonous cyanide molecule that must then be removed from your body by your liver.

    The proper form of vitamin B-12 to supplement is called methylcobalamin. This is the form that exists in nature, and it is pre-methylated, meaning it’s ready for your biochemistry to put to immediate use. Methylcobalamin has several key advantages over cyanocobalamin:

    * Increased absorption
    * Better retention in tissues
    * Contains no toxic cyanide
    * Supports production of SAMe

    As explained by Ed Sharpe:

    “The coenzyme form of vitamin B12 is known as methylcobalamin or methyl B12. It’s the only form of vitamin B12 which can directly participate in homocysteine metabolism. In addition, converting homocysteine to methionine via methyl B12 generates an increased supply of SAMe (S-adenosyl methionine), the body’s most important methyl donor.” (http://www.health101.org/art_methylcobalamin…)

      I take Solar brand methylcobalamin B12 that absorbs under the tongue. I took B12 shots for several years with little success. This form has sent my B12 levels through the roof without taking the shots. I am very happy with this product and purchased it from Amazon.

    For those of you dealing with pain, you might want to look into cupping. (I tried to have it done when I was at my worse, but I had lost so much weight that the cups kept falling off!) http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2016/08/26/cupping-therapy.aspx?utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20160826Z1_NB&et_cid=DM114715&et_rid=1637427703

    Anyone know what is best to knock a cold out?? I’m scared to take anything.

    • Debs August 26, 2016 at 3:19 pm Reply

      I don’t take anything for uncomplicated colds myself. I just let them run their natural course & have always done this.

      Oil of oregano! It is great for so many things. Get a good quality brand, preferably organic if you can find it (although I have had good luck with NOW brand which is not organic.) http://articles.mercola.com/herbal-oils/oregano-oil.aspx

      • Lee August 27, 2016 at 8:41 am Reply

        Thanks!! I will have to get some and try it. I’m almost one year out out and I don’t want no set, so trying to avoid any meds.

        My doc said some of my sinus problems are from allergies & gave me a chemical nose spray. Sure, sticking toxic chemicals up my nose should help, right? I wonder could the oregano help with allergies as well?

      I got a herpes virus recently and started using my tens unit, it actually works, the electricity is not high enough to harm you but it kills viruses, that and some vitamin c and zinc, start low dose and go from there, drink plenty of water, avoid stress and rest. Pumpkin seeds have zinc also.

    Please tell me there are people who’s symptoms go away shortly after stopping this drug! Is there any hope of this happening? Everything I’m reading sounds like it takes months or years to recover if at all. Are there people who have had their muscular pain disappear shortly after stopping? I’ve had 5 Ciprofloxacin pills. It wasn’t until last night that I realized the sudden and severe pain radiating from my neck down through my shoulder and wrist was due to this drug. I have a nasty respiratory infection, which makes it all the worse because I want to cry every time I have to cough now due to the pain I’m in. I have to turn my entire body to look around since my neck is in so much pain. Do these symptoms disappear for people shortly after stopping the medicine? Does this mean I’ve torn a tendon in my neck and shoulder?

      S—there are no hard and fast rules for this. People recover on different timelines. The best thing you can do right now is avoid fluoride, gluten, and GMO foods and eat only organic meats; make sure you get magnesium and get on a good probiotic.

    • Madge hirsch August 29, 2016 at 3:42 pm Reply

      Try taking NAC for the cough. I have found it helpful.

    I would add digestive enzymes to the list, green foods in general are good because they provide magnesium, sweet potatoes provide potassium.

    The easiest way is to use a small nine volt battery, you put a wet cloth under your wrist and tap the wet cloth constantly for about five minutes and rest five minutes, you´ll do this three times a day, you should drink plenty of water.

    I have a tens unit and i use it everyday to keep the bugs at bay.

    Hello, has anyone who has taken cipro been diagnosed with Tarlov cysts? These cysts appear on the spine. Not much is known but they can be dangerous. One correlation I’ve found is that these cysts are common in people who have connective tissue issues and we all know this crap cipro damages connective tissue. Please respond back. Thanks.

    Hello. Just wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with tarlov cysts on their spine? I took cipro for 20 days , 500mg twice daily. These cysts are dangerous and can cause debilitating side effects and are common in people with connective tissue disorders. Since we all know that cipro causes connective tissuedamage I was wondering if mine are cussed by cipro. Diagnosis is via MRI.

      Hi Cam,

      I haven’t heard of anyone else getting tarlov cysts. Or, at least, they haven’t mentioned them by name. As you know though, fluoroquinolones cause all sorts of connective tissue damage, and it seems to manifest in a variety of different ways for different people. If I hear of anyone else with tarlov cysts I will point him or her in your direction so that you can both have someone else who understands and who can provide support.

      I’m truly sorry to hear of your diagnosis! Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.

      Regards,
      Lisa
