  • Antibiotics

    For them those who think Antibiotics is the achivement to save the sufferings:
    Antibiotics
    known as Quinolones (e.g.: ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, among others) have been associated with some or all of the following adverse drug reactions:

    • Tendonitis, Tendon Rupture, Tendon, Ligament, Joint and Muscle Damage
    • Vision Damage, Hearing Loss, Taste Perversion
    • Peripheral Neuropathy (Tingling, burning sensation)
    • Insomnia, Nightmares, Anxiety Attacks, Depersonalization, Cognitive Disorders
    • Brain, Heart, Liver, Kidney, Pancreas, Blood and Endocrine Disorders
    • Severe Psychotic Reactions, Suicidal Thoughts or Actions
    • Gastrointestinal Damage
    Should you have experienced any of the above, after taking an antibiotic, you are far from being alone! Many others have experienced similar long term problems as a result of being prescribed these drugs. Despite the fact that such events have been reported for more than forty years, your physician is either unwilling or unable to recognize, treat, and report such events.

    For more than forty years the FDA has allowed the manufacturers of this class of chemotherapeutic agents to be aggressively marketed as "safe and effective antibiotics with an excellent safety profiles and to be remarkably free of clinically significant adverse effects." This has been done in spite of compelling evidence to the contrary. Evidence that the FDA has ignored since 1939. For almost forty years the FDA has turned a blind eye to the severe, crippling and at times fatal adverse drug reactions associated with these chemotherapeutic agents. Even going so far as to allow these drugs to be marketed to physicians as safe antibiotics with minimum side effects.

    Antibiotics may exhibit adverse drug reactions that resolve upon cessation of therapy or modification of the therapeutic dose, however, the toxic adverse drug reactions associated with some antibiotics appear to be not dose dependant and do NOT resolve upon cessation of therapy in many cases. In these cases such adverse drug reactions do not even manifest until weeks, months and even years after such therapy has been terminated. These latent reactions also do NOT appear to resolve and become chronic conditions to which there is no known treatment protocol. Tens of thousands (literally) of patients may have died as a result of such therapy and hundreds of thousands more have had their lives destroyed by these drugs. Yet the FDA does nothing to prevent this ongoing carnage and continues to approve additional agents without a moment’s hesitation.

    Many victims of adverse reactions to antibiotics face the fact that their lives have been completely destroyed. Many face loss of job and income, some face breakup of the family. Some have even committed suicide because of the pain inflicted by these drugs.

    In 1982 spontaneous tendon ruptures were reported to have occurred long after such therapy had been terminated. In some cases well over a year later. Year after year numerous case studies, clinical trials and medical journal entries have documented this severe and crippling adverse drug reaction, often times citing the co-administration of steroids to be a contributory factor. The FDA has ignored this research and continued to approve additional agents and monographs devoid of this caveat for over twenty years. Only recently has the following warning been added to the monographs, twenty years later.

    "Achilles and other tendon ruptures that required surgical repair or resulted in prolonged disability have been reported ... should be discontinued if the patient experiences pain, inflammation, or rupture of a tendon."

    The patient being advised to:

    "To discontinue treatment; rest and refrain from exercise; and inform their physician if they experience pain, inflammation or rupture of a tendon "

    Yet when the patient presents with tendon pain and/or rupture he or she is told it cannot possibly be the drug by the attending physician. For more than fourteen years the FDA turned a blind eye to this until Public Citizen filed a petition demanding that they take action. They failed to do so. Despite the overwhelming evidence presented by Public Citizen, who demanded that at the very least a black box warning be added to the monographs and a "Dear Doctor" letter be sent, the FDA did nothing. No black box warning and no information provided to the prescribing physician, who to this day does not associate such spontaneous rupture to antibiotic therapy. The clueless physician also prescribes STEROIDS to treat such events once they manifest in his or her patient. Which results in severe injury to the patient with the resulting tendon ruptures. . In fact the FDA has recently approved yet another antibiotic with severe rash being a known adverse drug reaction together with the approval of the use of STEROIDS to treat such an event once it manifest in the patient.

    Compounding the problem is that there are numerous drugs which should not be taken in combination with this class of antibiotics. There are increased risks of injury when they are taken in combination with corticosteriods (e.g.: Prednisone, Flovent, Nasarel, Azmacort, Advair Disku, Methylprednisolone Dospak, Elocon Cream, Desoximetasone Cream, and Sterapred) and when taken in combinations with non-steroidal anti-inflamatory drugs (NSAIDs) (e.g.: Motrin, Pamprin, Aleve, Advil, and Ibuprofen, among others). Physicians are frequently not aware of these contraindications and prescribe dangerous combinations of drugs which cause severe injuries to their patients. Physicians may also not be able to identify that their patient is suffering an adverse reaction and instruct them to continue to take more of the antibiotic resulting in very serious and perhaps preventable injuries.

    The warnings within the monographs for this class of chemotherapeutic agents minimizes, trivializes, and distorts the potential risk involved in such therapy and claim that such events resolve upon cessation of therapy.

      That is wrong. This is something that is discussed and worked with constantly within the life science industry. Did you ever see those papers that comes along with the medicine you buy? They list known side effects. There's a huge control system around this that you should be aware of. Does it guarantee that all potential problems are found? No, of course not but when something new is found the information about the product is updated.

        Many medicines should be having very long term adverse effects or ultimate effects which may be noticable at old age. In view of constant changes in medicines, how such effects are checked, indicated and justified?

              Do you honestly believe they are here for evil purposes with an agenda of making billions of dollars while slowly poisoning humanity to extinction?

              I do honestly believe the majority is working with good intentions. Do they mess up sometimes? Of course! Are there immoral people within the life science industry? Of course! Are they a majority? I don't think so. Are you denying that the researchers and manufacturers do lots of good things.

                in some cases, yes. the tobacco industry, for example, actively researched how to make cigarettes as addictive as possible, as well as marketing to youth etc. and of course, the pharma's suppress research that shows poorly for their products. the majority of time? the majority of people? who knows ... i generally think conspiracies are not that widespread, though maybe wider spread than in my naivete i can imagine. i think, back to the meds, that the manufacturers of vioxx and prozac (?) had knowledge of ill effects before they were made public ...?

                I do honestly believe the majority is working with good intentions. Do they mess up sometimes? Of course! Are there immoral people within the life science industry? Of course! Are they a majority? I don't think so. Are you denying that the researchers and manufacturers do lots of good things.
                i think the real issue, as far as the honest folks in any industry, is that they do things they think are for the good of humanity ... yet, they can be fearsomely wrong, and that is what we are really arguing about here.

                the politics behind it is another matter ... are they the majority? honestly, the answer probably depends on which expose i read this morning .... i'm not inclined to be overly skeptical, but otoh i wouldn't be surprised to find the problem is bigger than i would like to think.

                    maybe this says it: power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

                    not a promising scenario.

                      How nice it must be to be able to see the world as black or white with no shades in between. So "The System" is evil. Excuse me? I never thought about my local drugstore as having a personality.

                      And, you didn't answer my question. Has some good come out of "The System"?

                        "good"? is any particular medical result necessarily good or bad, or are they also characterized by intermediate shades of gray - mixed results? i would suggest the latter.

                        and i would suggest that the benefits of conventional medical treatment include a good ability of conventional med to "cure" acute conditions rapidly, and palliate ("treat") chronic conditions more or less effectively.

                        of course, i would stipulate, "with usually unremarked and often disastrous side effects, or long-term effects to compromise general quality of health ... by-products, in essence, of "suppression." and contributing directly to the emergence and proliferation of terrible degenerative diseases, autism, medical interventions as the 4th leading cause of death....

                        by contrast, a strength of homeopathy is to actually cure, and to create a more healthful foundation. but treatment takes a long time. and is not as consistently reliable in acute and especially emergency situations.

                        cost-benefit, in short, from this pov, clearly favors homeopathy ... except in acute or emergency care. or conditions not responsive to homeopathy ... which is another question altogether.

                          All, of course, provided homeopathy works as advertized. For which we still lack evidence.

                            rewriting the dictionary, again? we have plenty of 'evidence.' unless you restrict the definition to the modern, number-driven variety, as in 'evidence-based medicine.' which, of course, is quite ok, as long as you are clear enough in your communications as to specify what you actually mean.

                              I love paranoia/unsubstantiated conspiracy theory threads. Especially those where people start hedging their bets abut the definition of words.

                              What if I was to say that homeopaths aren't in it for the good of mankind? They just like selling something that costs nothing in terms of research or investment, and can actually be just put together by one man, a collection of little bottles and a household tap, should he so desire. Any mark-up above cost is pure profit, and there's potential for a lot of that, so why should they care whether it helps people or not?
                              All homeopaths are fraudulent criminals, blah blah... isn't that what you're saying about "big pharma"? Is it different when I say it?
