Please tell me, could ciprofloxacin 500mg can cure chronic prostatitis?

Not exactly: Only 5% to 10% of chronic prostatitis are caused by bacterial infection. Chronic bacterial prostatitis is treated with antibiotics up to 12 weeks, even though well-designed clinical trials have failed to demonstrate their efficacy. See your urologist for evaluation and treatment. Be well.
