Doctor terminates Levaquin patient.

It seems that some of us are abandoned by the very institution that put us in this predicament in the first place.  Another sad Levaquin ( Levofloxacin ) story.  It is hard enough dealing with this toxicity but the refusal of acknowledgement of fluoroquinolone poisoning makes it even more difficult.

 

I developed this illness after a dose of Levaquin and Macrobid.  I am 80 years old.  All I had was a mild bladder infection.  Now I cann’t tell you how many things are wrong and don’t know where to turn.  The doctor that prescribed these drugs terminated being my doctor stating I was uncooperative.  This is like telling a dog headed for execution to stop quivering.  I am so angry.  The new doctor apparently doesn’t know anything about this.  I took the report into his office and her refused to acknowledge them and told me to take them home.  Then he wanted an explanation of my symptems in a superficial manner.  What am I – a guinea pig that failed the test. Dolores

    This is a sad situation that unfortunately happens more often than most people realize. This exact thing happened to me. I was terminated as a patient by the very Dr. that prescribed me Cipro. As soon as I complained to that Dr. that Cipro had caused me all kinds of health problems, and suggested that he file an ADR report to the FDA he went berserk. I couldn’t believe the change in his attitude as soon as I mentioned that Cipro had caused me problems. Instead of showing any concern for my well-being, he threw my papers on the floor (that I had brought in to show him Cipro and all FQ’s had been known to cause health problems)…and started ranting at me about how great Cipro was.

    The apt. ended abruptly and a few days later, I received a letter from his office stating that I would no longer be accepted as a patient at his practice. No reason was given.

    I think this happens more than most people think. It’s criminal.

    How can a patient be injured by their Dr. and then dropped by that Dr. and left with no recourse? How can this happen in the U.S.A. in this day and age? Unbelievable!
