You mentioned that you had never run into another casualty of the quinolones outside the forum....My daughter's teacher has been asking countless questions about this problem. It seems that her two daughters had ADRs to this family of drugs. One lost approximately a half year of college because of her reaction and the other just started with PN after being put on cipro.
Her hands are numb and the family is very concerned because the daughter wants to be a surgeon. She went back to the prescribing physician and showed him some literature/studies on PN related to quinolones. He dismissed the studies as junk."this doesn't happen"...I believe that more people suffer than we can imagine but are not reported because of the doctors simply not knowing or worse yet, caring enough toassociate the symptoms with true cause.
My regards to all of you,
