Fourteen pills of ciprofloxacin started Lisa’s journey through fluoroquinolone toxicity and transformed her from strong and active to a weak and anxious person. Lisa Bloomquist was left wondering, “What happened??”
Even after her recovery, she still wanted answers about what happened in her body when an adverse drug reaction led her into the scary world of mysterious multi-symptom illness.
Her journey, as well as advocacy work and research, are chronicled on www.floxiehope.com. She is honored to further learn and connect through Fearless Parent Radio.
