  • one dose of Azithromycin taken and my eyes felt weird; stiff, gritty, gone by the next day. Haven't taken any more since

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • After 7 weeks on azithromycin 500mg IV daily, with pre-existing tinnitus, developed sudden hearing loss left ear. IV zithromax discontinued 3 days later. 4 days after Azithromycin discontinued, experienced vertigo; diagnosed with Meniere's disease.

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I have so many side effects that chronic fatigue seems simplistic. Almost every cell in my body has been damaged. I have seen over 20 doctors since my cascade of symptoms started (13years ago). They all play dumb, tell me my problem is not in their specialty, or offer me antidepressants. Yet when I look up actual research, I see that most of the pieces of the physiology of my syndrome have been known for years (some for decades).

    I also note that on this web site, there is no way to report a high number of side effects or simplify them as mitochondrial damage.

    I believe it is the intent of this web site, the AMA, drug companies, and most doctors to deliberately avoid "knowing" about the holocaust of poisoning that is occurring in the name of heath care.

    The logarithmical explosion of cancer, obesity, depression, allergies, auto-immune diseases, "rare genetic diseases," and diabetes (to name just a few) matches exactly the explosion of pharmaceutical consumption.

    It would be appropriate to apply the scientific method instead of the profit motive to further human health.
