Antibiotic Alert: The Drug The Doctor Ordered Could Cause Deadly Side Effects

'A couple of months ago I took my teenage daughter to the doctor for an ear infection, and came home with a prescription for the antibiotic Cipro. I’ve taken it before myself, and thought nothing more about it – until I read the fine print in the insert that said it wasn’t recommended for patients under 18. That made me call the advice nurse, who assured me there was nothing to worry about. It also made me dig a little deeper, and start asking questions.

And then a couple of weeks ago the New York Times came out with a scary blog post about Cipro and related antibiotics, and I really began to wonder.'
