because they weren't effective then and they aren't effective now. they're running out of Cipro and they're desperate. when we run out of pennicillin, you'll see how quick Vic's Formula 44D gets approved to treat the 'thrax!

Would like to see your source but Penicillin Tetracycline Doxycycline Ciprofloxin Levaquin All treat it. It is an easy bug to treat with many antibiotics. Not near as scary as smallpox! cpermd

...or sarin... hey, did anyone ask themselves prior to the florida confirmations why the media was answering questions about the thrax that nobody was asking? at least we know now that if we see on the 6 o'clock news, all this info on sarin, that its only a few short weeks before we learn of a weeks-old sarin attack!

A Doc on TV just said that they were using Cipro at first because it is efffective against the greatest number of different strains of anthrax. What the FDA just said is that the generics have now been proven to be effective against these strains that are showing up. Penicillin has always been known to work against some strains of anthrax, but not others.

They are not the same drug, but they are in the same family of antibiotics, as is ampicillin. To some extent, if the names sound similar, the antibiotics are often (but not always) related. Ciprofloxacin and lomefloxacin, tetracycline and doxycycline, and so on and so forth. . . .
