  • My brother was taking methadone for 6 years. He entered the hospital a for a urinary tract infection. He was given levaquin overnight in an IV. He came home the next day and died 2 hours later. Could his death been caused by an adverse reaction of the 2 drugs?

    Taking Methadone and having Levaquin is not a combination that kills. There are only two things here that can..I doubt it was the Methadone since it sounds like it was __scribed by the Dr. for pain. I have to take it now, as well, and hate it but have not choice. I live in constant pain and most of the time wish I had died, from Levaquin. Levaquin side effects are deadly. The death rate is higher than reported as it causes things like kidney failure, liver, heart, and more and the reports read what fails NOT WHAT MADE THESE ORGANS FAIL. SO more than likely it was the Levaquin. This list is large from all over the world--people dying from Levaquin. When I was Floxed-name from adverse reaction to Cipro, Avelox, and Levaquin, I surely thought I would or was dying. Getting in contact with others having the same issue, I realized I very well could die. Now I wish I did...anyway, I am ON methadone from the pain I was left in...48 years old now, 43 at the time, and never did or had done drugs in my whole life..not even in high school did I try them of ANY KIND. Now -I live on them and barely function. If he had to live the way most of us floxed do, I realize there is no consoling anyone with a loss, but if he could tell you, he would tell you he is happier where he is then the pain he would have been left in on earth. I am sorry for your loss, but please look up the side effects to Levaquin and go on Facebook about it. He was FLoxed and died and another statistic passed right on by and people telling you it was a mix or the Methadone...it was ONLY the LEvaquin.... SO sorry

  • My brother had MRSA and the nursing home was giving him Prednisone for Asthma. I know that Prednisone lowers the bodies amune system and what have allowed the MRSA to flourish. Is this true because when i told the staff of what i have discovered about this one medication they had been giving him for some time already they immediately took him off of it. He died due to the MRSA that was was in his blood and every where... Please advise..
    Thank you,
