Floxed By Cipro: 11 People Share Stories of Fluoroquinolone Toxicity

To be floxed by Cipro simply means you’re experiencing the toxic side effects of the antibiotic, which are categorized as fluoroquinolones. Fluoroquinolone toxicity is capable of leaving potentially permanent disabling, crippling side effects involving damage to the nervous system, tendon rupture, damage to muscles, joint damage, and in some cases death.

How Common is Getting Floxed?

Fluoroquinolone-Associated Disability, also known as FQAD, is a life hindering condition caused by fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Antibiotic fluoroquinolone toxicity has a black box warning issued by the FDA many times brushed aside by traditional doctors. Millions of people are consuming antidepressants, opioid painkillers, ADHD medications, steroids, cholesterol agents, and antibiotics without knowing the long-term side effects of what they are consuming. Getting floxed is quite common, the more risk factors one has, the higher the risk of becoming floxed. Top Risk Factors include:

  • Prior fluoroquinolone antibiotic exposures
  • Other Fluoridated medication exposures (ex. Lipitor, prozac, flonase, diflucan)
  • Ibuprofen or steroid use concurrently with fluoroquinolones
  • Gadolinium exposure through contrast MRI
  • Recent use of other antibiotics


When a board certified Internal Medicine is paralzyed from the same medications he once prescribed, a life changing moment takes place. A common antibiotic called Cipro which has been disabling millions of people for over 30 years chose the wrong doctor to mess with. Dr. Ghalili’s life was shattered with just 3 pills of the antibiotic Cipro. He could no longer work and perform his duties as a physician. Being left in a wheelchair to rot was not going to sit well with Dr. Ghalili so he took matters into his own hands when none of his colleagues believed him. After making a 100% full recovery using regenerative medicine which he taught himself, Dr. Ghalili opened a state of the art center to take care of those neglected by traditional medicine. His office treats patients from all over the world and the testimonial videos are purely jaw dropping.

Stories of Patients Floxed By Cipro or Levaquin

In 2016, the US Food and Drug Administration recommended that fluoroquinolones should only be used in patients whose infections have no alternative treatment options or for serious infections. This new warning was issued based on serious side effects caused by fluoroquinolone toxicity.

The most important thing to remember about Cipro and Levaquin (ciprofloxacin toxicity & levofloxacin toxicity) toxicity is that its effect is cumulative. Your first Cipro toxicity treatment may be successful and not cause any side effects. Then subsequent treatments can trigger the start of subtle symptoms as toxicity builds. Here are the stories of twelve people who have experienced first-hand the paralyzing effects of being floxed by Cipro or Levaquin and how they were able to get their lives back.

Fluoroquinolone Recovery Treatments

Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Treatment consists of repairing the damaged mitochondria in the body. Fluoroquinolone causes radical damage and oxidative stress to cells. Fluoride is a known neurotoxin which is the main driving force of Fluoroquinolone damage. Traditional medicine has no answer and will worsen disabling symptoms. Dr. Ghalili’s condition became gravely worse from consuming pain relievers like ibuprofen which can severely damage every organ in the body after Fluoroquinolone exposure. 

The 5 Day Regenerative Program includes fully customized in depth comprehensive IV protocols, supplement recommendations, mitochondrial improvement, followed by specialized Cell Therapy. Dr. Ghalili has lived through this nightmare ordeal himself and is one of the very few physicians who understand the complexity of being a floxie poisoned by fluoroquinolone antibiotics.
