Despite the fact that fluoroquinolone antibiotics – Cipro/Ciprofloxacin, Levaquin/Levofloxacin, Avelox/Moxifloxacin and Floxin/Ofloxacin – are contraindicated in the pediatric population because they have been shown to cause lameness and lesions on the cartilage of juvenile animals, they are administered to children all the time.  I have a friend who has a three year-old daughter who has been prescribed Cipro twice – once in the form of ear drops and once in the form of pills.  Luckily, my friend knows how dangerous fluoroquinolones are and she didn’t fill the prescriptions.  Other parents and children aren’t so lucky.  Children are being hurt by fluoroquinolones every day.  It’s a tragedy that needs to stop.  Please share “DON’T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE FLOXIES” with any friends who are parents.  No child should go through the horror of fluoroquinolone toxicity.
