The True Story of Cipro
By Andreas Schuld, Wendy Small and Trent Harris

Recently, the pharmaceutical company Bayer was forced to recall its fluorinated cholesterol-lowering drug Baycol (Cerivastatin) as it had caused deaths and serious adverse health effects worldwide.1, 2, 3 Baycol had been found to cause muscle destruction and wasting--a condition known as rhabdomyolysis--and displayed compounded toxicity when used with other drugs. It had been linked to at least 31 deaths.

The adverse reactions documented with Baycol were largely identical to those of numerous other fluorinated drugs--all of which had been withdrawn from the market in recent years. 3

As a result of the current anthrax scare, another fluorinated drug called Cipro has received extensive media coverage and the name has become familiar to millions almost overnight. As soon as the first cases of anthrax resulting from suspicious mail became known, there were wide reports of a hectic run on this drug.

Mass hysteria seems present as governments, pharmacies and individuals everywhere are stockpiling Cipro. Pharmacies are reporting record sales, and on-line prescription services and Internet sites are selling the drug at more than $7.00 per pill.

People everywhere--hyped into believing their flu-like symptoms are caused by anthrax exposure and misinformed by irresponsible media reports--are taking Cipro. Worse yet, they are giving it to their children.

What is Cipro?
Cipro is ciprofloxacin, a fluorinated quinolone, belonging to a class of fluorinated antibiotics which also include enoxacin, fleroxacin, temafloxacin, grepafloxacin, norfloxacin, sparfloxacin, tosufloxacin, lomefloxacin and ofloxacin.

Ciprofloxacin has been in use since 1987 for a variety of other indications and is the most widely used fluoroquinolone in humans and animals worldwide.4

In 2000, the FDA approved its use as a treatment for inhalational anthrax under its "accelerated approval" regulations.5 The FDA had actually taken the unusual step of urging Bayer-- the sole manufacturer for all countries except India--to file for such approval, supposedly in order to protect the public from future terrorist attacks. The US Department of Defense had already ordered reserves of Cipro during the 1991 Gulf War.6

Adverse Effects
Temafloxacin and grepafloxacin are two other fluoroquinolones now withdrawn from the market because they had caused severe liver and renal damage--and deaths, just like fluorinated drugs from other, different classifications, such as Baycol.3 The same information also exists for Cipro.

Fatal liver failure associated with ciprofloxacin was reported in the Lancet in 1994.7,8

Ciprofloxacin has been implicated in several cases of acute renal failure and is the fluoroquinolone most established to cause such renal dysfunction.4,9,10,11

Fluoride
The most common side-effects due to Cipro, reported in 2-16 percent of cases, are gastrointestinal in nature and equal those reported when children accidentally ingest "too much" fluoride from their toothpaste. These symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Why?

Ciprofloxacin administration always results in elevated serum fluoride levels.12 In a series of tests evaluating the safety of ciprofloxacin in children, serum fluoride levels increased after 12 hours in 79 percent of the children; on day 7 the 24-hour urinary fluoride excretion was higher in 88.9 percent of children observed.12

Rhabdomyolysis
Just as in the case of Baycol and other fluorinated drugs, Cipro can cause musculo-skeletal disorders such as rhabdomyolysis. Since the introduction of fluoroquinolones on the market in 1987, more than 200 cases of rhabdomyolysis, tendinitis, tendon rupture, etc. have been reported in the literature.4,13,14,15

In October 1994 the Japan Pharmaceutical Affairs Bureau was first to amend the product information for fluoroquinolones to state that rhabdomyolysis may occur.16

In 1996, the FDA also issued directives to manufacturers to include warning statements on all fluoroquinoline product inserts to alert patients and caregivers to the potential for tendinitis and tendon rupture.17 In the same year, the Sri Lanka Drug Evaluation Sub-Committee decided that the product information sheet on fluoroquinolone antibiotics should include the following warning: "The onset of tendon pain calls for immediate withdrawal of fluoroquinolone antibiotics."18

Achilles tendon rupture was shown to occur even after withdrawal of the drug with examination showing pathological ultrastructure alteration in tendinocytes. Just as in other cases of fluoride poisoning, studies in animals show that magnesium deficiency aggravates the induced tendinopathy.14,19

Fatal Drug Interactions
Just as with Baycol, drug interactions with ciprofloxacin have resulted in fatal outcomes due to potentiation of another drug’s effects including theophylline,4,20 methadone21 and warfarin.22

Just like Baycol and other fluorinated drugs, ciprofloxacin is a potent inhibitor of the thyroid hormone-regulated P 450 enzyme system in the liver. Of all fluoroquinolones, ciprofloxacin and enoxacin have shown the greatest inhibitory capacity.4

P450 IA2 prevents the metabolism and inactivation of methylxanthines, thereby causing increased serum concentrations of drugs like theophylline (found in tea) and caffeine (found in coffee and soft drinks), which in turn causes excess central nervous system and cardiac stimulation. As mentioned above, Cipro also elevates serum fluoride levels.

The liver has been identified as a target organ of fluoroquinolone toxicity in animal studies.23 As early as the 1930s, scientists at Bayer and Knoll had discovered that all organic fluoride compounds tested (including those used for fluoroquinolone production) interfered with thyroid hormone activity in liver and muscle tissue. Meanwhile, they also showed "anti-bacterial" activity. This led to the development of many fluorinated medications, including the numerous compounds then used very successfully in the treatment of hyperthyroidism.24,25 A Dr. Kraft of the Knoll corporation invented many fluorinated "medications." When it was discovered that some of these organic compounds had the same detrimental effects on teeth and bone as inorganic fluoride (although much less actual F ion was involved) he even filed patents on behalf of Knoll for use of these compounds in dental preparations.26,27

Pregnant women should never take ciprofloxacin. Cipro transfers through the placenta. It inhibits P450 1A2 which has been shown to be critical for neonatal survival as it influences the physiology of respiration in neonates. Mice lacking this cytochrome died shortly after birth and showed symptoms of severe respiratory distress.28 Respiratory distress is also a side-effect of ciprofloxacin in adults.9 Cipro also transfers through breastmilk.

Resistance to Bacteria
Taking Ciprofloxacin can spur germs to mutate so that future bacterial infections become untreatable. During the last decades a dramatic increase in bacterial strains multiresistant to antibiotics, particularly Cipro, has been reported.30,31,32 This increase has led to the occurrence of incurable bacterial infections with a fatal outcome, and a particularly serious problem in connection with hospital-acquired infections.

For example, Clostridium difficile has become one of the most common acquired organisms in hospitals and longterm care institutions. The organism typically infects patients whose normal intestinal flora has been disturbed by the administration of a broad-spectrum antibiotic such as Cipro. The diarrhea and inflammatory colitis associated with infection represent a serious medical and surgical complication leading to increased morbidity and mortality, and prolonging hospital stays by an average of nearly three weeks. This is especially true for the elderly and for patients with serious underlying diseases who are the most likely to develop the infection. Diarrhea associated with C. difficile represents a major economic burden to the healthcare system, conservatively estimated at $3-6 billion per year in excess hospital costs in the US alone.33

The emergence of "antibiotic resistance" is a result of the overwhelming use of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine. High rates of fluoroquinolone resistance have been reported in many countries.30 For example, in Asia Cipro can no longer be used to treat gonorrhea, because the disease has become resistant to the drug.34

While the FDA approved Cipro as the first-line treatment against anthrax in August, 2000, a few months later, in October, 2000, it asked Bayer to remove Baytril--its equivalent for animals.

The FDA has also proposed banning the fluoroquinolones, which chicken and turkey farmers have given to birds in their water since 1995 to help shield the animals from infection. The agency acted after linking the drugs to a large increase in Campylobacter bacteria immune to the medications. Nearly 18 percent of one common strain that infects humans is now immune to the very same drugs which were considered the last line of defense against the infection.

Campylobacter is the leading bacterial cause of food poisoning in the United States. Typically contracted through raw or undercooked meat, the germs afflict more than 2 million people and kill some 500 each year in the US, according to the CDC.

While Abbot voluntarily withdrew its version of the antibiotic (SaraFlox), Bayer decided to challenge the FDA. The company had the option to comply with the proposed ban or seek a hearing to determine whether such a move was justified. Bayer refused to comply with the ban, a move that kicked off a lengthy process that could take years.35 Meanwhile Bayer gets to poison the world, and make huge profits from it.

According to one report, the American Medical Association has advised its members to prescribe Cipro very cautiously, citing the fact that the worldwide problem of antibiotic resistance poses future dangers worse than the anthrax attacks of today.34

Photosensitivity
Photosensitization can result when light interacts with chemical agents in the skin and eyes. This process can produce undesirable clinical consequences, such as phototoxicity(exaggerated sunburn), photoallergy, or photo-carcinogenicity. People receiving Cipro or any other fluoroquinolone are warned on the product inserts not to expose themselves to direct sunlight. Rashes develop on the areas exposed.

Upon UVA-irradiation, the "fluorine" of numerous fluoroquinolones such as lomefloxacin and fleroxacin, are "lost" as fluoride.36

According to a US government report, "We have discovered that anions can activate visual photoreceptors in the dark. One anionic activator is the commonly used dental agent fluoride. The data on in vitro preparations indicate that these anions modulate photoreceptor bio-chemistry and may affect photoreceptor sen-sitivity. . . "38

Medline has many articles on fluoride and G-protein-coupled photoreceptor activation.35

Fluoride Poisoning
In summary, Cipro causes fluoride poisoning. But will any practitioner know how to deal with this, considering that the American Dental Association has shielded all practitioners from proper knowledge of fluoride toxicity?

Dangers of Fluoride
Revised October 2006
Please inform yourselves
Parents of Fluoride Poisoned Children (PFPC)This is a website about fluoride.
Perhaps more accurately, it is a website informing on fluoride toxicity.

It is mainly about fluoride poisoning occurring in our children - from any and all sources - be it soy products, toothpaste or other oral dental products, fluoride tablets, tea, air pollution, vaccine contamination, groundwater pollution, household products, contaminated beverages and food products, fluoridated salt or milk, anesthetics, mattresses emitting fluoride gases, Scotchgard, Teflon, antibiotics, as well as the fluoridation of public water supplies.

You can see pictures of crippled kids and adults and learn about the massive fluoride poisoning from industry pollution occurring in India and many other countries.

On this and associated websites there are links to over 60,000 studies from peer-reviewed scientific journals from around the globe, detailing fluoride toxicity, defining and detailing biochemical pathways involved in the development of various diseases, including “dental fluorosis”, various cancers and underlying thyroid hormone dysfunction, Alzheimer’s Disease, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and many more.

Another website is devoted to scientific literature.

There is info on the damage done by fluoride to the environment, to animals and to plants.

There is also info on fluoride in drugs.

"Though apparently vague and non-specific, most of the symptoms of Fluoride toxicity point towards some kind of profound metabolic dysfunction, and are strikingly similar to the symptoms of Hypothyroidism." (University of Western Ontario, 2002)

As we are convinced that all fluoride toxicity is related to disturbances caused in thyroid hormone activity (see: Symptoms), we have devoted many pages to the long-observed “fluoride-iodine” antagonism, including a very detailed history page. Tables are provided highlighting the biochemical evidence..

Soon there will be a resource page for parents, treatment options, a true toxicological profile on fluorides, and much more.


EXCELLENT audio interview on Fluoride from David Kennedy, DDS TONS of info explaining the issue concisely. Also info on contacts to help you get fluoride out of your communties water

Wholly Water
Fluoride is the 13th most abundant element, so it is impossible to remove it all. But you can reduce the risk of getting an overdose by taking the following precautions:

Avoid anything that you know that contains fluoride.

Use fluoride-free toothpaste: Boot's Non-fluoride, Tom's, Tea Tree, Vademecum, Sarakan, Kingfisher Natural Propolis, Weleda, Aloedent and others, available from supermarkets, Boot's the Chemist and health food shops.

Eat foods low in fluoride: milk, eggs, red meats (not organs), fruit with a protective rind (watermelon, lemon, banana, coconut), fruits packed in their own juices (pineapple), and those canned in non-fluoridated or low-fluoridated countries.

Don't drink tea: Tea contains between 4.4 and 12 ppm of fluoride. Just one cup can be enough for an overdose.

Take vitamin B6 and C supplements.

Take supplements of calcium and magnesium salts to help reduce fluoride absorption from the stomach and assist in elimination.

Maintain good general and dental health with varied vegetables (lightly cooked or raw)and fresh fruits. Reduce intake of starches and sugars.

Stay away from areas that fluoridate water supplies.

Avoid using non-stick kitchen ware: Non-stick coatings, such as Teflon, are made of fluoride. Scrapes and other damage can release a significant amount of fluoride into cooking.

Avoid fluoride-containing drugs : If you are taking the following, contact your doctor for a fluoride-free alternative: Prozac (fluoxetine), Rohypnol (flunitrazepam), Diflucan (fluconazole, Flixonase or Flixotide (fluticasone), Stelazine (trifluoperazine, Fluanxol or Depixol (flupenthixol) or Floxapen (flucloxacillin), and asthma drugs that use propellants containing fluoride: Ventolin and Becotide.
