      Hello Ester, same for me… these issues seem to be linked to the autonomic nervous system. I have just the same problems… I m 15 months out. No solution for now except to drink a lot of water, wear compressions thighs… that could help… you can listen to kim s podcast on this site. She had pots as well. Good luck and if you need to, ask lisa my email or please email me if you find any natural solution… good luck! Take care. Sophie.

      And I m wondering if magnesium should be taken in this specific case of orthostatic hypotension?

  2. Michael Teeter March 18, 2014 at 8:56 am Reply

    I really can sympathize with you two. The toesand finger not bending. What is helping me is try to be positive. I put DMSO and soothanol on my feet and toes. and Knees. Cats’ Claw has helped me withe pain. Today is the first day I was able to move my toesand fingers!

    I am taking 2000mgs of a magnesium and calcium supplements Even Tums have been helping. With Charcoal tablets at night. I feel like we have been poisoned and our body is trying to get this stuff out.

    I am heading back to my doc today. We shall see what happens.

    I’ve been having GI issues & CNS (I guess is what to call them) since mid May. The gut seemed to be trying to heal but then out of no where it went down hill again. I have lots of symptoms but really nothing I couldn’t live with or ignore if I could get my gut back and get rid of this vibrating/trembling sensation. I’m looking for a contact buddy.

    As a newly-minted victim of both Cipro and Moxi, and with a background in organic chemistry and psychopharmacology, I am very sure there is a simple, single-molecule cure.

    Neither Cipro nor Moxi form covalent bonds with any Gyrase (Human Topoisomerase II in particular is relevant). That means the FQ molecule is not permanently bonded to Gyrase.

    That means that the molecule is just attracted (Hydrogen bonds) and forms a more-stable structure (lower net energy) than without the FQ molecule.

    All those FQ victims. Yet, nothing has been destroyed in them.

    Their Gyrases are just stopped – jammed up.

    Inside each of those stopped Gyrases is a single FQ molecule stabilizing it in that state.

    There are about 4-5 Hydrogen bonds for Moxi and two particularly strong sites – the Carboxyl and the Piperazine group.

    Using simulation software, a small molecule that binds tighter to Moxi than Moxi does to Gyrase can be designed.
    1. When such a molecule approaches the Moxi-Gyrase complex, the Moxi molecule is more attracted to the SM than Gyrase.

    2. SM + FQ molecules form a complex via either Hydrogen bonds or covalent links.

    3. The complex has no more attractivity to Gyrase and thermal vibrations quickly dislodge it.

    4. Without the FQ molecule to stabilize Gyrase in its ‘stuck’ position, Gyrase then begins to work again.
    There’s a second type of small-molecule solution too: one that actually reacts with the FQ molecule to change its structure. The changed FQ isn’t attracted strongly enough to Gyrase and is displaced by thermal vibrations.

    Using the funds pooled from victims, correct design and simulation software, and finally submitting the design to the Chinese chemcos (I’m in contact with over 1000), we can get an affordable solution for oral or IV use.

    The take-home message from me to you is this: FQs don’t directly destroy DNA or much else but they do lockup Gyrase. All symptoms that continue after dosing is halted are due to the continued presence of FQs locking up your Gyrases. When the FQs are dislodged from their Gyrases, the disease and symptoms end.

    This cure is not only possible but can be quickly implemented at an affordable price. All that is required is dedicated effort, correct analysis and finally a bit of funding to synthesize the cure.

    Tell me your thoughts. It’s too late at night for me to type up my case but I can tomorrow or soon thereafter.

    Yours,
    Jason Lalancette

    • Jason April 17, 2015 at 4:40 am Reply

      Jason that is an interesting theory for sure. It seems to somewhat support what some people have found, that by chelating and detoxing Fluorine, potentially the drug is exiting the body with it (they enter body attached) and after some time, symptoms stop and the people get better. Not sure about no DNA damage being done, it seems fairly well documented that these drugs DO DNA damage, Fluorine just on its own can apparently do it (one of the most reactive elements on Earth as you know) and the drug is supposed to work similar to “Chemo” which screws up good cells. At any rate, hope you keep working on your theory and develop something to help the thousands suffering.

      You have said that you have a background in organic chemistry and psychopharmocology.

      Please can you help me because I have been floxed as you know.

      I am trying to get better but like us all am terrified of taking any medication .

      I am taking the following medications.

      Valsartan 80 mgms a day for hypertension.
      Phenytoin reduced from 500 mgms a day to 25 mgs daily under the supervision of a neurologist.
      Clobazam 10 to 20 mgms prn to a maximum og 40 mgms a day foor control of seizures.

      Warfarrin – life long die to history of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary emboli.

      Cardicor 1.25 mgs daily formLong QT ynsdrome.
      Adcal D3 for Vitamin D deficiemcy disorder. Natures Own D3 supplement 5,0000 i.u three times a week. Magnesium. B12. B6/ Bicarbonate of soda bd.

      Codeine for peripheral neuropathic pain.
      Jason are any of the above dangerous orlikelly to result in a failure to get the quinolones out of my body? I have recently had to take amoxyl for a UTI. In February I was prescribed Keflex. In march I had Clexane s/c 120 mgms x 3. The clexne caused intense burning of my left leg as soon as the nurse injected it into my abdomen.

      In April I had a contrast medium iodine whilst having a VQ scan.

      I have a low tsh and 29 nodules on the thyroid. No treatment yet ordered!!
      Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    I have been suffering from the side effects of Cipro for over 2 years. My recovery has been the focus of my life, and I have tried a variety of remedies ( all natural) from massage, acupuncture, herbs, supplements, etc… all of which have helped, but not cured me. Always with a relapse and symptoms recurring on an unpredictable cycle. But 3 weeks ago I started the “Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Solution” by Kerri Knox, and I have enjoyed a dramatic improvement in my health and well being. My ability to increase the duration and intensity of my athletic workouts has been incredible. In addition, I am not exhausted at the end of every day, which has been the case for over 2 years. I would urge all who have been floxed, and wish to recover, to follow Ms. Knox’s one hundred and thirty three page document on a toxicity solution. I am finally becoming the athletic and astute person I was prior to my dosage of Cipro in the year of 2013.

    100% Cured now! I am not a doctor, I am not giving you any medical advise, but I will share my story and tell you what worked for me. I was floxed a few months ago after my doctor. I developed all the same symptoms of the people on this forum (tingling, burning, fatigue, disorientation, confusion, etc.). It almost ruined my life and my relationship. Like everyone, I went on all the forums and searched for cures to this thing. These forums terrified me – people only talked about their symptoms but only a few actually gave a solution, which was frustrating in its self. I finally ran across a few people that used vitamin c. I gave it a try. I used 3500-4000mg of pure vitamin c powder a day (I break it up throughout the day). After about two months, I was 85% better. After three months, I was near 100%. About the fourth month, I had no symptoms at all.

    God made vitamin c for a reason. Who would have thought that something as simple as vitamin c could clean a drug as bad as cipro, levaquin, etc. out of your system. I pray that all of you will be 100% healed of these nasty drugs. If you have any questions, contact me at: rwisconsen@gmx.com

    Lucy,

    I had severe tendonitis, nearly lost Achilles tendons & other tendons in my legs, suffered from neuropathy, water (mucus) retention and a host of other side effects.

    Regarding the herbs, my acupuncture physician made blends specific to my issues each visit, which was weekly at the time.

    I would also recommend ordering the eBook “The Flouroquinolone Toxicity Solution” from Lisa’s website, with magnesium being the biggest key. Be careful with the fat soluble supplements, which can create a “fatty liver” situation. I have been on all or some form of the authors program for the past six months and I am close to a path of complete wellness now.

    Please let me know if I can be of any additional help!

    Above all, keep your spirits up, you can & will get better!!!!

    As a person that has just taken Ciprofloxaxin, I have some concerns and issues.

    I haven’t suffered any of the horrible side effects…..YET. (Aside from constipation and minor heartburn), but I’m afraid that somewhere down the line I’m going to get hit hard. I need to know what I must do to at least prevent or limit the possible damage of the side effects.

    First of all, are these things going to 100% happen to me? It sounds like there is a 100% rate of these side effects occurring.

    Secondly, this is what I have taken and what I’m currently doing now:

    I took 20 pills of Cipro 500mg for 10 days for a UTI. The UTI is gone but I have constipation.

    As for pills and stuff, I take the following: Concerta 54mg, Vitafusion multivites (2), Ritalin, and Miralax 1 cap a day. I am also taking a Probiotic (Trubiotic from Bayer)

    As for food this is what I generally eat:

    Morning: 1 Banana, 1 bowl of Multi-grain cherios + Probiotic

    I also exercise in the morning on a treadmill. 2 miles at 10 incline for 30 minutes.

    For lunch I usually hae carrots, an apple and a turkey & cheese sandwich on multi-grain rounds

    Snacks usually are some nuts and graham crackers with milk

    Dinner is usually chicken of some kind.

    Is there more I should be doing, or should I not worry so much about this? Please let me know. I’m scared about this stuff possibly happening to me.

    • Pam Field March 2, 2016 at 6:53 pm Reply

      Hello Daniel,

      From what I have read, it is a cumulative thing with Cipro, but everyone is different. Some people can’t tolerate a single dose, while others take oral Rx’s repeatedly, without becoming toxic…at least for a while. I believe, no one is immune to this poison though and if someone takes it long enough, their body will reach its tolerance and they will become floxed.

      That’s what happened to me, over 16 years ago. I worked in a large, sick building, where literally everyone in my small office of 12 got sinusitis within the first six months of working there. I was Rx. oral Cipro, many times, starting in ’92 and became symptomatic in the fall of ’98. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue.

      In 2002, I was given IV Cipro for 8 days after staph was introduced during elective surgery. Within 6 months, in May 2003, I had to retire at 53 from a career I loved and had worked at for over 11 years.

      In October of 2014, I was hospitalized again. I was diagnosed with a GI bleed, something I could not understand, as I had no GI issues. I was in ICU for 4 days and received Cipro IV the entire time…by November, I was pretty much bed ridden, at home.

      The summer of 2015, I figured out I had been floxed by Cipro. I wrote my symptoms down on a timeline and listed what was going on in my life during those times. The only thing in common was Cipro and I have or had almost all of its horrific symptoms, of which a GI bleed is one. I’m going to get a medic alert bracelet. I’m 67 now and pretty sure if I get it again, especially IV, it will kill me.Try not to worry, as I believe with the vast majority of people it is cumulative and not toxic after a single dose or two.

      Wishing you the best, Pam

      • Daniel Goldberg March 8, 2016 at 3:47 am Reply

        Just an update as to where I am.

        2 months after taking the pills and I appear to be fine. I did lose a lot of weight (combination of inactivity/lost of appetite due to surgery & Cipro), trying to put it back on.

        I can pretty much eat anything without suffering, though I still want to be careful with what I eat. The only thing the Cipro appears to have done with me is alter my bowel movements. I still take probiotics to be safe and exercise (cardio) regularly.

        I will say that it appears that my right shoulder makes more noise than normal and there is very very minor pain that occurs once in a blue moon.

        I would like to think I dodged a major bullet here, but I’m going to make sure I never take this type of medication again.

        As for everyone else I hope you all are doing better. This drug is a very scary drug, even for those who aren’t adversely affected by it, just the thought of these things occurring is very terrifying.

        Thank you for the kind words Pam.

    Two years ago she had some urine infection and took fluoroquinolone antibiotics prescribed by her Doctor (I cannot recall specifically which one but I can find out if needed), and after just 2-3 weeks she completely lost her libido and desire for sex. In addition, she lost the sensation of orgasm. Strange thing according to her is that she feels that she has an orgasm but the sensation is not there like anhedonia. We have visited a few doctors but without any luck or any specific help…can you pls help us on which type of doctor to visit or what kind of help to look for or treatement?

    My name is Brenda. On October 12 through October 22, 2015 I took 500mg of Ciprofloxacin every 12 hours (a total of 20 pills) to treat a UTI which left me with tendonitis in my tendons surrounding my inner and outer ankles, Achilles tendons, left shoulder, and left thumb. Often I feel pain in my wrists as well. This week marks my 16th week of enduring this injury. Three weeks ago I began taking Vitapulse every morning because it has NAC, PQQ, and CoQ10 which are ingredients touted to improve mitochondria. I’ve added this to my arsenal of Ensure Plus, fish oil, glucosamine sulfate, orange juice, vitamin D3, Ancient Minerals magnesium chloride foot soak (better than Epsom Salt magnesium sulfate), bone broth and even Jello. I’m hoping that my most recent addition of Vitapulse will make a significant difference with time. It is expensive and I’m out of ideas. Good luck to all in your healing. God bless.

    I took levofloxin, and immediately got insomnia, anxiety, muscle twitches in my calves, and 2 days later a pounding headache. all this after 1. 500mg pill. I am curious how long this is going to last. I live in a 3rd world country and do not have access to much or a lot of resources.
    It seemed to come on so quickly, and i am hoping that it goes away quickly as well. Does anyone know as to what i should expect??
