Finally a Black Box warning on Levaquin and other quinolones

It took decades for this warning to finally appear on the quinolones. The warning label is a Black Box warning on Quinolones for tendon pain and tendon rupture. I wish they would have added one for all of the neurological adverse effects. I think these side effects outnumber all of the tendon disorders. Hopefully future warnings will appear about the devastating central nervous system effects.

    So far this is a small step in the right direction. The FDA has ordered the makers of Quinolones to place boxed warnings on their FQ products BUT…. that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will get done. The makers could still appeal this and stall the process for years to come. Also, the warning is still only about the same old tendon rupture issue. There are many other ADR’s that are much more serious and devastating including CNS problems that were not included and need to be. I think this is a cop-out by the FDA and once again they are not doing their job to fully protect the public from these dangers. At this point in time, there still is no box warning on these toxic and extremely dangerous drugs.

    Sadly, I doubt that there ever will be a box warning at the rate this could drag on in the courts…but I’m still hopeful that it does happen eventually.

    I certainly agree more needs to be done. I won’t be satisfied until every american is given his/her right to make a fully INFORMED decision about taking these drugs.

    I have been given over 76 Levaquin tablets since 2000- 2007, and since that time I have had shoulder/arm tendon pain. In June of 2007, I tore a tendon in my left foot, a very unusual tear the ortho Dr. stated, instead of an horizontal tear, mine torn vertically. I have suffered so much in the past 7 years, and when asking my Dr. about the side effects of levaquin, she just laughed and said” All drugs have side effects.” I can barely walk, always in pain, and the Dr’s do not want to blame it on Levaquin. I wish I could get my life back before I started taking Levaquin, and to tell the rest of the world, do not take Levaquin, your life will never be the same.

  11. When financial affairs span euros, sterling, dollars or other currencies, even seemingly small rises or falls in rates can add hundreds, if not thousands, to bills paid in one currency when income is generated in another. Over the nine weeks to the end of March 2013, for example, the value of sterling oscillated by 2.6 per cent against the euro – in four separate waves. Over the same period, sterling lost a hefty 4.3 per cent against the dollar, yet it came out even against the South African rand.

    You help yourself in the beginning; by learning to think for yourself and understanding that whilst anyone can trade forex, to be successful, you must learn to BE a forex trader. Most people who do include properly related bonuses with their products do include the bread on the top, but including an additional bonus to fill in the gap for those who may not be ready for your main product is an awesome idea.

    Google’s digital online marketing course is unique in that it’s set up as a competition, rather than a course. You’ll compete against marketers just like you in areas like Search Advertising, Social Analytics, Video, and Search Engine Marketing. I’m sure that, especially to a beginner, this sounds overwhelming, but don’t worry; they offer an actual Digital Marketing course to help you learn and understand the concepts of online marketing before attempting the challenge. At the end of the course you’re awarded a certificate of completion, and they even offer prizes to the winners of each region of the competition (for Europe, America, the Middle East, and Asia) in the form of donations to non-profit partners and even trips to their Headquarters for the Global and Regional winners.

    3. Developing a call-to-action: We talked about using a call-to-action in the second step as a part of your marketing funnel, but what is a call-to-action exactly? A call-to-action (CTA) is an image or text that prompts visitors to take action, such as subscribe to a newsletter, view a webinar or request a product demo. CTAs should direct people to landing pages, where you can collect visitors’ contact information in exchange for a valuable marketing offer. In that sense, an effective CTA results in more leads and conversions for your website. This path, from a click on a CTA to a landing page, illustrates the much desired process of lead generation. In order to increase visitor-to-lead conversion opportunities, you need to create a lot of calls-to-action, distribute them across your web presence and optimize them. A good CTA should be attention grabbing and help lead a potential customer further into your marketing funnel.
