Medication Side Effects

6/3/2008: We are proud of this site's collaboration with Jason Uttley on fibromyalgia and fluoride poisoning, and we would like to do more with this new page, created in direct response to a reader who discovered the Advair she was taking for asthma contained fluoride as a stabilizer, after she had trusted her doctor to protect her from that sort of health conflict.

If you are concerned about fluoride in your own medications, the Fluoride Toxicity Research Collaborative has an excellent compilation of medications that contain fluorine, listed by drug category.

Generic Name Common Name
Ciprofloxacin Cipro
Enoxacin Penetrex
Flucloxacillin There are several
Gatifloxacin Tequin
Gemifloxacin mesylate Factive
Grepafloxacin HCI Raxar
Levofloxacin Levaquin
Linezolid There are several
Lomefloxacin Maxaquin
Moxifloxacin HCL Avelox
Norfloxacin Noroxin
Ofloxacin Floxin
Sparfloxacin Zagam
Trovafloxacin mesylate Trovan
