This is adorable and sad at the same time. I hope that Ashley has improved. She posted this in 2010.
She’s right – FIGURE IT OUT, BAYER! Why is the list of adverse effects getting longer and longer each year? How many people have to suffer from adverse effects of these drugs before VERY serious consideration goes into whether or not they should be on the market? What is the mechanism by which fluoroquinolones downgrade GABA-A receptors? How much damage do fluoroquinolones do to human DNA – both mitochondrial and nuclear? What are the consequences of damaging the DNA replication cycle for bacterial DNA within a person? What are the consequences of damaging nuclear DNA of human cells? What are the consequences of damaging mitochondrial DNA of human cells? What are the long-term consequences of using fluoroquinolones? What are the intergenerational consequences of using fluoroquinolones? These questions aren’t too much for us to demand answers to. Bayer has the means to answer these questions, SO GET ON IT, BAYER. And OF COURSE they won’t do it voluntarily, SO MAKE THEM STUDY IT, FDA!
Anyhow, here is Ashley singing The Ciprofloxacin Song:
