Thank you Lisa for the article. I regret taking Cipro this past week for Colitis. I ended up in the emergency room again from the side effects of it. It is horrible drug! #lymesucks
To my dear friends with chronic Lyme Disease,
I am so sorry for all that you are going through! The pain, the exhaustion, the fear, the frustration – all of it. My heart goes out to all of you!
I know that treatment options are a touchy topic, and that antibiotics are often a necessary part of dealing with Lyme Disease. However, I’m going to jump right into a volatile sea and say, PLEASE, please, please be careful with antibiotics, and know that they are not all created equally. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics – Cipro/ciprofloxacin, Levaquin/levofloxacin, Avelox/moxifloxacin and Floxin/ofloxacin – are chemo drugs that can do absurd amounts of harm. I would hate for you to have to deal with two chronic illnesses at once – chronic Lyme and Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome. Both are horrible.
