Playing Antibiotics’ Crippling Side Effect?

You might want to reconsider taking fluoroquinolones, a type of antibiotics, after learning about Dr. Andrew Ordon's health scare.

Dr. Ordon believes he had a bad reaction to fluoroquinolones and explains says he developed Achilles tendinitis, which was very sore and lasted a few months. He was also left feeling tired and had trouble concentrating. After he got an MRI, a tear in his Achilles tendon was found, and he attributes these health issues to the fluoroquinolones.

To help him heal, he visited internal medicine specialist Dr. Mark Ghalili to get a customized IV treatment protocol that actually helps rebuild the mitochondria within the tendon. 

Dr. Ghalili says the IV treatment Dr. Ordon received helped to increase collagen production, reduce pain and increase stamina. Like Dr. Ordon, Dr. Ghalili also had a negative reaction to this type of antibiotic and says he had brain fog, could not walk or care for himself and was confined to a wheelchair for 5 months. He tells us he has treated hundreds of patients for issues related to the use of fluoroquinolones.

Dr. Ordon says after enduring this health scare, he will no longer take or prescribe fluoroquinolones. He urges everyone to ask questions about the antibiotics your doctor is prescribing, like if you really need it, what are the side effects, and if there are other options with fewer side effects
