Are you aware of the devastating side effects of floroquinolones, levaquin, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) etc. Why aren't patients warned of this?

Quinolones. I'm not sure what you mean by "the devastating side effects of fluoroquinolones". I have prescribed many, many, many doses myself to children and adolescents and they are overall safe. It is known that they can cause a reversible arthropathy and it is also known, and warned about every time I prescribe it, that they can cause tendonitis and tendon rupture rarely. Your doctor should mention this.
