Media Coverage of Fluoroquinolone Antibiotic Dangers

WSB-TV 2 out of Atlanta, Georgia has run several news segments about the dangers of fluoroquinolone antibiotics – focusing on the death and destruction caused by Levaquin/levofloxacin.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLVED IN MAKING THIS POSSIBLE!  WSB-TV 2 producers and other staff, Jim Strickland, Kathy Dannelly, Donna Schultz, Jeff Stephens, Lynne Whitcopf, Dr. Keith Jeffords, Sandy Davis and everyone else who spoke up about the dangers of these drugs – THANK YOU!

Here are the video clips from WSB-TV 2 –

Per The Quinolone Vigilance Foundation‘s facebook page, “QVF has just been informed moments ago by ABC2 WSB-TV that the number of shares from the news stories have increased from 2 million to 3.9 million.”  WOW!  Great job getting the word out!

Here is another story featuring Lynne Whitcopf and Dr. Keith Jeffords, and their stories of pain –

When a doctor reports that, “It was an amazing amount of pain, to the point that I couldn’t walk,” and has to crawl out of the hospital to avoid more fluoroquinolones, you KNOW that the situation is bad.

Sandy Davis sadly lost her husband Richard to levofloxacin.  Here is her story –

I’m so sorry for the pain that was experienced by all those who were interviewed.  I appreciate that each of you told your story of pain!  These stories are important!
