    This drug can make a perfectly healthy hit person to disabled over night. Those drugs are banned in several countries already. Don't take those...

    Interesting since Cipro (one of the drugs mentioned in the article) is still fairly commonly prescribed.

    I presume your link is referring to QT prolongation?

    I'll still be taking them if I ever have an infection that requires them thanks. The warning is clearly only for a potential nerve injury which is incredibly rare and has been known about for at least a decade. The warning isn't to not take them. Compared to the infections for which fluoroquinalones are used IMO you'd be foolish to take your chances untreated.

    Telling people not to take antibiotics is not "just" sharing information.

    Can you list these "several countries"?


    Do you have access to and have you read these papers in full?

    Edit:
    I see now. You are plugging a website.
