Patients call for ban on family of antibiotics that kill

Patients are pressing for a complete ban on a family of antibiotics that can kill or cause blindness and heart disease

Patients are pressing for a complete ban on a family of antibiotics that can kill or cause blindness and heart disease. Despite these alarming - and well-known - reactions, doctors continue to prescribe them every day.
Fluoroquinolones or quinolones - which include antibiotics such as Ciprofloxacin, Levaquin, Avelox, Tequin, Trovan and Raxar - are the most toxic and dangerous drugs on the market today, says David Fuller, who runs a website to support others who have been harmed by one of the drugs. He has been left with partial vision and permanent damage to his joints after taking one of the antibiotics for pneumonia in 1986.
Fuller says that nobody is recording the numbers of deaths and serious adverse reactions caused by the drugs, but he believes the problem is far worse than regulators are admitting. So far, five fluoroquinolones have been taken off the market after they were found to cause fatal heart problems.
