June 17th 2017

Is famed comedian Jerry Lewis the latest victim of Fluoroquinolone antibiotics Cipro or Levaquin?

Does anyone know if the antibiotic was Cipro or Levaquin, that the FDA says should not be used for uncomplicated UTIs? What little that has been reported matches the symptoms of Fluoroquinolone poisoning.

“LAS VEGAS (KSNV NEWS3LV) — Famed comedian Jerry Lewis is in the hospital for a 12th straight day. The 91-year-old legend was admitted June 2 to be treated with antibiotics for a urinary tract infection.

Since then, Lewis has developed other complications, according to people close to the entertainer. It was believed Lewis was on track to be discharged from the hospital over the weekend, but his health worsened late last week.”

Lewis, 91, lives in Las Vegas.
