If Levofloxacin caused peripherial neuropathy will Cipro also if I take that as an alternate?

Hi there!

If levofloxacin use is associated with peripheral neuropathy in an individual, chances are that ciprofloxacin could have a similar side effect and is best avoided.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!

No. Even though they are both of the same drug classification (flouroquinalones), there is significant differences.  My experience is anecdotal, but significant. I cannot tolerate Levaquin at all, but take Cipro without any side effects. I know at least four other individuals with the same tolerance for Cipro.

All flouroquinalones can cause peripheral neuropathy along with a long list of other permanent side effects ...
