The Fluoroquinolone Time Bomb – Answers in the Mitochondria

Two of the more perplexing features of Fluoroquinolone Toxicity (an adverse reaction to a fluoroquinolone antibiotic – Cipro/Ciprofloxacin, Levaquin/Levofloxacin, Avelox/Moxifloxacin or Floxin/Ofloxacin) are delayed reactions and tolerance thresholds. Both of these features of Fluoroquinolone Toxicity can be explained by noting that fluoroquinolones have been shown to damage mitochondria and cause oxidative stress, and that delayed onset of a disease state, as well as tolerance thresholds, are features of illnesses brought on by pharmaceutical induced mitochondrial damage and oxidative stress. Delayed Reactions and Tolerance Thresholds with Fluoroquinolone ReactionsBy “delayed reactions” I mean that adverse reactions to fluoroquinolones can occur weeks, months … Continue reading The Fluoroquinolone Time Bomb – Answers in the Mitochondria
