Cipro and Levaquin are same class

If bacteria resistant to one then it is likely resitant to the other

You should get urinalysis with bacterial resistance pattern checked

I suspect a different class of antibiotic is probably best for you ...

Most of time suspectible bacteria would respond to 7 days of Levaquin though if bladder infection // 14 days if kidney infection

Are you male or female ? ( 30 days for prostate )

I hope that this information is helpful for you
