I am not certain if this exact article from Consumer Reports has been posted here before and I didn't see it. A friend of my late mother's just sent it to me in light of what happened to me in 2010. Here is the link: https://www.consumerreports.org/drugs/fluoroquinolones-are-too-risky-for-common-infections/ and a few quotes from the article: In my own case, Levaquin nearly tore my right triceps tendon and caused a systemic neurotoxic reaction that caused me to get hospitalized (for the first time in my life) in 2010. It was the very beginning of my illness and although I can never put a percentage on each trigger, I believe that at least 50% of the total damage to my body was from Levaquin. I no longer think about it on a daily basis but when someone sends me an article like this, I feel compelled to share it so no one else has to go through what I did! And anyone with Myasthenia Gravis, LEMS, or neuromuscular diseases should never take this class of antibiotics. It is also not FDA approved for children under 18 but is often given any way.
