ANYONE who has taken a fluoroquinolone (Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox, Floxin, etc.), please take the time to complete these surveys:
Data is important. It is important for getting the symptoms of Fluoroquinolone Toxicity recognized. It is important for making connections between fluoroquinolones and the variety of ailments that are brought on by fluoroquinolones. It is important for assessing the real risks and dangers of these drugs.
When you have data, you have numbers instead of stories or anecdotes. Stories and anecdotes are important, but they are not appreciated or paid attention to like numbers. Anyone who is part of the “Floxie” community knows that, for example, losing the ability to sweat is part of floxing, but we don’t know how many people lose their ability to sweat, or feel anxious, or suffer from insomnia or experience an increased heart rate, etc., so we need numbers – we need data to tell us that information. These surveys will give us some data. Your help in completing them, and passing them on to fellow Floxies, will be GREATLY appreciated.
THANK YOU to any of you who take the time to complete these surveys.
In order to draw any statistically significant conclusions from the Lucine Health Sciences survey, a minimum of 500 people need to complete the survey. The survey being conducted by UCSD is seeking 10,000 respondents. We all know that there are thousands of people who have been adversely affected by fluoroquinolones. However, getting them connected with these surveys may not be easy. I would like to ask for your help. Please forward these surveys to as many people as you know who have taken a fluoroquinolone – ESPECIALLY those who are not involved in the Facebook Floxie groups (because facebook is the primary way that I am advertising the existence of these surveys so it is likely that those in the Fluoroquinolone Toxicity facebook groups already know about this survey).
A huge amount of thanks and appreciation should go to Chandler Marrs, Founder of Lucine Health Sciences, Inc. and www.hormonesmatter.com. She created the Lucine Health Sciences survey. She has spent hours creating this survey and she will spend hours sorting through the data and drawing statistical conclusions from it. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the survey, please don’t hesitate to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to donate to Lucine Health Sciences / Hormones Matter as a sign of your appreciation for Dr. Marrs’ hard work, donations will be greatly appreciated.
