If I'm allergic to Cipro (ciprofloxacin) in medications can I take an antibiotic that's called Cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin, prescribed by a Nurse practitioner? She knows my history
I think you know. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is brand name for ciprofloxin. They are the same thing. What is the nature of your allergy? What happened last time you used it? What is the reason for an antibiotic now? Are you SURE you will benefit from it? If you are allergic to it, you will be sorry if you take it again. 70% of antibiotic prescriptions are not appropriate. If you are allergic to Cipro (ciprofloxacin), you may be allergic to all fluoroq.
Nope. Same drug. If you are allergic. Don't take it.
