Cipro, Levaquin and Avelox are Chemo Drugs

Here is an excerpt –

When I first heard people referring to fluoroquinolone antibiotics (Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox, Floxin and a few others) as “chemotherapy drugs,” I thought that they were exaggerating or incorrect.  After all, fluoroquinolones are used to treat urinary tract infections, traveler’s diarrhea, anthrax, and other bacterial infections, not cancer. But then I started to do some research into how fluoroquinolones work and I discovered that they cause mitochondrial damage, which leads to oxidative stress and cell death (12), they interfere with the DNA replication process of mitochondria (3), they disrupt tubulin assembly (4) and that they are being investigated for their tumor killing abilities (56).  I also found that all other drugs that have the same mechanism for action as fluoroquinolones – topoisomerase interrupters (FDA warning label7) (topoisomerases are necessary for proper DNA replication) – are used as chemotherapy drugs – topotecanamsacrineetoposide, etc.  Fluoroquinolones are, truly, chemotherapy drugs – they just happen to be used as popular antibiotics. They can kill cancerous tumor cells because, in addition to killing bacterial cells, they also kill eukaryotic cells (89).

    Both my doctor and pharmacy say it’s very safe and I dispute with both of them. Now I have pneumonia and am forced to take it

      Are there any alternative antibiotics that you can try? People dealt with pneumonia prior to the 1980s when Cipro and Levaquin were both put on the market. Have you tried other antibiotics? There are safer alternatives in most cases.

      For alternative treatments, I have heard good things about using colloidal silver in a nebulizer and also andrographis as an herbal antibiotic.

      I hope that you don’t have an adverse reaction to the FQ if you do end up taking it. Here is a post that goes over some things that may help to prevent an adverse reaction (emphasis on may) –

        No, my doctor says he insists on Cipro, and so does my husband. Am going on3rd loose but feel lousy. Don’t know if it’s the pneumonia or Ciprofloxacin.
