I broke out with skin blisters while taking Levaquin 3 years ago. Today my Doctor has put me on Cipro. My question is if I am allergic to Levaquin will I have the same reaction with Cipro

Although both medications are in the same fluoroquinolone drug class, I don't believe you'd experience the same type of reaction with a different brand. Your allergic reaction could've also been due to one or more inactive ingredients (binders/fillers) that may have been present in the Levaquin and not necessarily in Ciprofloxacin.

Have you started taking the Ciprofloxacin yet with any success?

I started with Cipro on Tuesday and have not seen any adverse reactions to it. I need to take it twice a day for 14 days so far so good. I will keep you apprised of the results.
