It’s a well-known fact that antibiotics are effective in the treatment of various bacterial infections, but most of them have some potentially serious side effects. This is especially true for the group of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones ( which includes Ciprofloxacin and Norfloxacin, among others), commonly prescribed for the treatment of UTIs, sinusitis, pneumonia, joint/bone infections, soft tissue infections, intraabdominal infections, etc.

The side effects of fluoroquinolones can range from mild to severe and include gastrointestinal issues such as abdominal cramps, vomiting, nausea, and a more severe form of diarrhea associated with the bacterium Clostridium Difficile. Other side effects include central nervous system issues such as sleep disorders, dizziness, memory impairment, depression, gait disturbances ( ataxia), and more. Additionally, the adverse effects of fluoroquinolones include impaired senses, neuropathies, severe joint pain, tendonitis/tendon rupture, bursitis, and other musculoskeletal problems.

According to the FDA, the use of these antibiotics, especially for longer periods of time, has been linked to potentially permanent, disabling side effects affecting the nerves, joints, tendons, muscles, and even the brain. It’s worth noting that several fluoroquinolones have already been withdrawn from the market due to potentially fatal side effects. Millions of people are affected by the adverse effects of these antibiotics and many of them choose to turn to regenerative therapies to recover. Regenerative medicine therapies effectively and safely counteract the adverse effects of these drugs.

Regenerative therapies aimed at rebuilding the mitochondria of your body include platelet-rich plasma therapies, stem cell therapies, and many more to combat toxicity conditions caused by the adverse effects of fluoroquinolones, among other drugs. If you suspect that you’ve been affected by fluoroquinolone toxicity after using Ciprofloxacin, Levaquin, or other FQs, you should immediately see a regenerative medicine expert in your area.

The sooner the mitochondrial damage is stopped, the better the chances to make a full recovery. Conventional medicine treatments are ineffective because they are primarily based on corticosteroids which have a plethora of side effects and other anti-inflammatory drugs that can cause further neurological disturbances. The safest way you can regain your health, vitality, and well-being after the use of fluoroquinolones is to harness the power of regenerative therapies in a first-class alternative medicine facility that offers comprehensive care.
