If im not allergic to bactrim can i be allergic to cipro (ciprofloxacin)?

Not likely: Just because you have an allergy to Bactrim doesn't put you at increased risk for developing an allergy to cipro (ciprofloxacin).

If you want to understand your drug allergy in more detail see a board certified Allergist for further workup and evaluation. ...Read more

Need expert help. Can someone allergic to penicillin or sulfa take cipro (ciprofloxacin)?

I would not expect : to see cross-sensitivity between ciprofloxacin (a flouroquinolone) and either a penicillin or a sulfa drug. All 3 are chemically different. While a person could be allergic to all three, it would typically be considered three different allergies, not a single allergy related to all three medications. ...Read more
