Common Antibiotics May Cause Delirium, Confusion And Hallucinations
I have long had severe reservations about quinolone antibiotics, like Levaquin and Cipro. I have had these concerns since I conducted clinical trials to test new antibiotics (including a variety of quinolones) before they went to market. Now I have further concerns about them because of their overuse as an alternative to busy physicians trying to puzzle out what's wrong with the patient, and because practice "guidelines" promote their overuse.
