“If we fail to act, we are looking at an almost unthinkable scenario where antibiotics no longer work and we are cast back into the dark ages of medicine.”
“It was not fair what happened to my husband – his life was taken from him because of this terrible drug. I do not want my husband to have suffered three years of torture for nothing. I would want, if nothing else, for awareness, recognition and action to be taken regarding the fluoroquinolone group of antibiotics.” said Beardes.
“Medical professionals in the UK and all over the world need to recognize the multi symptoms of fluoroquinolone toxicity, and the severity of the risks associated with the fluoroquinolones. We call on the UK regulatory authority to launch an immediate investigation into its current use and to create strict safeguards so more people don’t suffer irreversible, but preventable, harm.”“The failure of regulatory authorities and the makers of fluorouquinolone antibiotics puts patients at an alarmingly high risk of developing lifelong, life-threatening neurodegenerative disorders, disability and death,” said Brummert.
“If I died today I wouldn’t care because I have no life. My neurologist now acknowledges ‘fluoroquinolone toxicity’ – but if I am to die I want it acknowledged the harm caused by this drug – otherwise my life has been wasted.”“I believe there are number of people out there who don’t know why they might be ill – they should check if they have ever been prescribed Ciprofloxacin.”
“My life is living hell – the doctors don’t know anything, can’t diagnose it, can’t treat it – how many others are suffering like me?“I can’t live with the pain anymore – the constant burning, all over muscle pain, sleepless nights – I just want out – to find a way of how to die painlessly and quickly.”
