No easy answer: Prostatitis is complex -- difficult to diagnose accurately, hard to know the exact cause, and different treatments are needed for various kinds. Symptoms alone don't always mean prostatitis is still present. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) might work, but only if prostatitis is definitely due to continued bacterial infection. You need to discuss w/ your doctor, preferably a urologist or infectious diseases specialist.
