hands and feet

by Angelina
(West Valley City, UT)

My dr gave me Ciprofloxan for my Bronchitis. I only took 2 dosages and my hands and feet swelled up and my hands and feet also started to hurt, it has been a week since I took the 2 pills and I can hardly use my hands with out pain I can not do my own hair, or put my BRA on, I need to help of my daughters who are 12 & 14.

I cry most mornings cause my hand hurt so bad. I ice them regularly. I just want the pain to go away so I can go back to normal. I still don't understand why my Dr would give this medication to me.

Antibiotics are not indicated for Bronchitis
by: Kerri Knox, RN

I'm sorry to hear about your problems, Angelina, and I don't understand why your doctor would do that either. Antibiotics are not even indicated for Bronchitis, and new guidelines from the FDA even say that the Fluoroquinolones, specifically, are not indicated for 'simple' infections such as bronchitis.

Please read Antibiotics for Bronchitis- A Warning Story to see why antibiotics for simple infections are a bad idea. Drugs have consequences. They are not harmless, and we all need to be more vigilant about what we put into our bodies and question everything we are given.

50% of all antibiotics are given unnecessarily. While doctors are obviously responsible for this, this trend will not change until people decide that doctors are not the authorities over their bodies, they are. And that each individual needs to be responsible and educated for each and every thing we put into our bodies.

But since there is no way to go back in time and change what has already occurred, but we can only go forward and start from where we already are, we believe that your best chance for recovery is the Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Solution Protocol.
