I have had recurrent bladder infections and have been prescribed both Levaquin and Cipro. Both have worked well but the cost of Levaquin is extremely high compared with Cipro Within two days of taking Cipro I see and improvement in my symptoms.

I have neurogenic bladder and along with normal restroom use, I also have to catherize twice a day since January 2000. So infections and irritation is just part of my life.

Took Cipro many years ago and had some sight problem ... Show Full Comment
