Act Now Against Cipro! The FDA is Ready!

Cipro is only one killer of many in the fuoroquinolone class antibiotics!

As some of you may know, I have filed at the FDA a Citizen’s Petition again the antibiotic drug class fluoroquinolones, the most frequently prescribed antibiotics today. I started my attack with Cipro as guilty #1 since that is what nearly everyone gets and the number of people getting sick from Cipro is staggering. Cipro is now also understood to be the cause of the Gulf War Syndrome since soldiers were mandated to take it every day against anthrax in the field.

Many people have been permanently injured–some even have committed suicide. I am a firm believer that fibromyalgia is yet one more of the diseases we may be able to point to this class of drugs. The citizen petition docket is still open.

I just received a letter from the FDA stating that the matter is so complex that they have not yet been able to make a decision–please see below.

About Be Healthy

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist who evaluates changes in behavior, chronic pain, decision-making, as a result of hormonal variations in the brain. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention and treatment without the use of medicines. As a migraineur, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic mutations of insulin and glucose transporters, and voltage gated sodium and calcium channel mutations. Such mutations cause major shifts in a migraine brain, unlike that of a non-migraine brain. A non-migraineur can handle electrolyte changes on autopilot. A migraineur must always be on manual guard for such changes to maintain electrolyte homeostasis. The book Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: How To Treat and Prevent Migraines Without Medicines - An Insider's View explains why we have migraines, how to prevent them and how to stay migraine (and medicine) free for life. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and new research and findings, she is now finishing the 2nd edition. The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraines, incorporating all there is to know at the moment and also some hypotheses. It includes an academic research section with suggestions for further research. The book is full of citations to authenticate the statements she makes to be followed up by those interested and to spark further research interest. While working on the 2nd edition of the book she also published academic articles: "Migraine Cause and Treatment" Mental Health in family Medicine, November 23, 2015, open access "Functional Prodrome in Migraines" Journal of Neurological Disorders, January 22, 2016, open access "Are Statistics Misleading Sodium Reduction Benefits?", Journal of Medical Diagnostic Method, February 3, 2016, open access “A Comment on Severe Headache or Migraine History Is Inversely Correlated With Dietary Sodium Intake: NHANES 1999-2004” Angela A Stanton PhD, 19 July 2016 DOI: 10.1111/head.12861 not open access, subscription is required to read it. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in NeuroEconomics at Claremont Graduate University, and fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers.

    Thank you for your work. I’m another one who’s had my life completely & utterly destroyed by Cipro. I’ve been housebound and more or less confined to living in bed for nearly six years now as a result of just twelve pills. Most people think death is the worst side effect a Rx drug can carry…they’d be wrong. I WISH it had killed me. Everything I ever had that constituted a life is gone anyway.

    • Very sorry to hear J. what happened to you–and to the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands and to the millions who still don’t know what hit them and have not yet realized they had been floxed. The only thing I can ask of you if you can to comment on the citizen petition so that the number of comments can pull the balance on the side of the people and not on the the side of the legal department of the manufacturer! I wish you the best! Many hugs! Angela

    • Thanks Sherry. that is for the letter. The 3 under it are the citizen petitions.. they just place the things on top of each other. When you go to the link and see blue boxes on the right for 3 documents, those are the 3 copies of my citizen petitions… The thing that says “comment period is closed” os for the letter that you see above a scan of! 🙂

    I will not try to tell my long and painful journey post Cipro. I just need you to know no one should have to go through hell because of a drug given them for a simple sinus infection. My doctor could have chosen any number of safer options but instead used a nuclear bomb. Sinus infection gone……..life as I knew it also gone. Please stop hurting people you are supposed to help!

    • Agree Gary but doctors don’t know!!! The FDA comes out with regulations and then has no power to enforce so the drugs must be pulled off the market for doctors to notice! I asked FDA and just about fainted from that response.

      Take Aspirin, for example. It was proven that it is not suitable for a first line defense against heart attacks or strokes and can in fact cause GI issues. Bayer appealed and FDA turned them down so they are NOT ALLOWED to recommend it as first line prevention! Yet I see TV commercials continue on using Aspirin as first line prevention every day! I asked FDA about that. They said they had no power of enforcement. So who does??? We do!

      I suppose the only way to get Bayer from pushing it and doctors from recommending it is by removing it from the market!

      Aspirin is not at that stage yet but Cipro and the rest of quinolones are. Until they get to be removed, doctors will be clueless and they will continue to prescribe! So if you want to help and have Cipro and the rest removed from the market, this is your time to act! Please visit the website at the link, press “comment now” on on one of the buttons attached to my application that is posted 3 times for some reason. It will take you 5 minutes to put in your comment and may help removing this drug from the market. It will not disappear from the market if people complain here but not THERE!!! Please put in a complain at the FDA!! The link is in the article!

      Thanks,
      Angela
