  • Thank you very much for this beautiful piece! I wish that I had realized that it was Iatrogenic Illness Awareness Month earlier!

    A little over a year ago, I wrote this about my journey through iatrogenic illness – http://www.collective-evolution.com/2013/09/14/a-journey-through-pharmaceutical-induced-illness/ It has resonated with many people and I hope that it helps you!

    Several studies have shown that fluoroquinolone antibiotics – cipro, levaquin, avelox and floxin – do similar damage to GABA-A receptors as what occurs in benzodiazepine withdrawal. Perhaps the stories on http://www.floxiehope.com – a site for hope and healing for those suffering from fluoroquinolone toxicity – can help those suffering from benzo withdrawal. I hope so!

    It is difficult to get all of those suffering from iatrogenic illnesses to band together. People are often married to their labels. I also suspect that many recognized diseases are iatrogenic – autoimmune diseases, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, M.E., etc. I wish that everyone would look in their medicine cabinet or medical records and ask, What poisoned me?

    Thank you for your activism!
