Ciprofloxacin ( Cipro) is one of the most widely prescribed and used antibiotics and it’s a second-generation fluoroquinolone. This class of broad-spectrum antibiotics is thus effective against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. Fluoroquinolones are typically prescribed for urinary and kidney infections, hospital-acquired pneumonia, and other bacterial infections, including bone infections in people with sickle-cell disease, as these antibiotics penetrate bone tissue but chelation does not occur.
But fluoroquinolones are known for causing severe adverse effects, which is why they are generally not recommended for children. The FDA has added boxed warnings on all antibiotics in this class since 2008, with tendon damage or rupture as a major risk. For more than 5 years, the FDA has warned that fluoroquinolone side effects, which can occur after only several days of using these antibiotics, in general, outweigh the benefits of using them for the treatment of various bacterial infections when less harmful treatment options are available.
Whether a fluoroquinolone is administered orally or by injection, side effects that involve the muscles, joints, tendon, nerves, and the CNS ( including the brain) can occur suddenly and they can be disabling and even potentially permanent unless adequate treatment is instituted in due time. If you’ve been affected by fluoroquinolone adverse effects, the only safe and effective way you can counteract them is to turn to the medical services provided by a specialist in regenerative medicine. You will benefit from one or more regenerative therapies such as stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy, and more.
Keep in mind that fluoroquinolone side effects can include multiple issues simultaneously, such as tendon rupture and/or tendinitis, neuropathy ( you may experience numbness and tingling in your arms or legs), joint pain, and/or neurological problems e.g. ataxia, memory impairment, vertigo, and even convulsions or seizures. Regenerative therapies work by regenerating and repairing the mitochondria, whereas conventional treatment involves more drugs like steroids with plenty of side effects themselves, and more importantly, ineffective in stopping the mitochondrial damage, which can aggravate over time. This is why you need to benefit from regenerative therapies as soon as possible.
If you’ve used Cipro or other FQs and you are looking to regain your health, vitality, and well-being by having fluoroquinolone side effects safely and effectively counteracted, then it’s in your best interest to get in touch with Dr. Mark Ghalili, DO, who himself experienced fluoroquinolone toxicity first-hand, by calling Regenerative Medicine LA 855-437-7836 or filling out the contact form on the world-class regenerative medicine facility’s website regenerativemedicinela.com to schedule an appointment that will change your life for the better.
