How can doctors prescribe a medication with such deleterious side

How can doctors prescribe a medication with such deleterious side effects as floroquinolones, without notifying their patients of the possible life-long injury they can cause, and offering an effective, less dangerous alternative? Why don't doctors follow their oath that says, "First do no harm"?

2 of my children along with myself have some form form of the flu. Fever, body aches and cold symptoms and cough. We are in Mexico and will fly home to the states tomorrow. We went to a Mexican doctor and were prescribed some meds. My children are 3 and 6 years old. I would like to know how effective these drugs are and the side effects. I would like to make sure it is safe to give them to my children. The meds are pipazetato, celestamine NS ( which contains loratadina and betamethasone) and anti flu-DES ( which contains amantadine, clorfenamina and paracetamol)

I have been on methadone for approx. 5 years now at a dose of 30mg taken 4 times daily. This has not only stopped any unpleasant withdrawl symptoms but has also offered considerable relief in easing chronic pain from a severe back injury 11 years ago. For the first 3 years of taking the medication I found that while it was effective in these areas their was an exceptional side effect in that it absolutely obliterated any interest in sex or even the ability to physically have sex. Also I found that I had next to no energy, making many things I used to enjoy fall by the wayside which in turn led to severe depression. After extensive talks with my Doctor I was sent for blood analysis and it was found that my level of testosterone was so low it barely registered. I was then put on a 3 week cycle of injections of 2mls of Delatestryl and for the past several years I have been the person that I used to be (it gave me my life back). Know I have been given a new Doctor at the clinic I attend and he has informed me that he is only there to prescribe methadone and will not be responsible for any other prescriptions. I do not have a family doctor and our emerg has said that this falls outside their domain. The walk in clinic treats every individual that I know so badly that their is no doubt in my mind that they will refuse to continue this presciption. (to give you some perspective on our walk in clinic - I went their several mnths back with sever pneumonia and the Doctor looked at my chart once and told me that I would get know %$#&# narcotics from him and to leave immediately) Any suggestions on how to get across to my knew methadone Doctor (who has only been in prescribing methadone for 2 months) just how much this would severely negatively impact my life?
