ATLANTA — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has created a panel to analyze the risks of major health complications that Fluoroquinolones may carry. The issue was first written about by Channel 2 Action News Investigation – Atlanta.
Levofloxacin is one of the major fluoroquinolone drugs available on the market. However, the drug has recently been connected to the death of an Atlanta area man in addition to several other alleged fluoroquinolone deaths.
Another Atlanta area citizen, Nicole Delaine, used the drug for a sinus infection and is now set to testify in front of the FDA panel regarding the health complications she was afflicted with after taking a small dose of Levofloxacin.
“I was poisoned, That’s how I feel. There’s no other word to describe what happened to me other than poisoning.” Delaine told Channel 2 Atlanta, “Using a fluoroquinolone for a sinus infection is like using an atomic bomb to kill a fly.”
Prior to taking Levofloxacin, Delaine was an active runner but found that she was unable to walk after taking only three pills.
Janssen Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Levofloxacin, issued a statement following allegations that their drug is too dangerous for use saying Levofloxacin “continues to maintain a positive benefit-risk profile for the treatment of infections when used appropriately according to the product labeling.”
However, victims like Nicole Delaine remain steadfast in their commitment to spreading awareness of the dangers fluoroquinolones expose consumers to saying, “I think it will kill me if I’m exposed to it again.”
