Prostatitis symptoms gone with 2w cipro (ciprofloxacin) 500mg, but back right away. 2w cipro (ciprofloxacin) again has much less effect, 4w 250mg remaining. Stop now or keep at it?
Diagnosed with prostatitis. Given 2weeks cipro (ciprofloxacin), (cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin) symptoms went away, then returned 3 days after stopping. Back on cipro (ciprofloxacin) 2.5 weeks symptoms still there?
I am trying to cure my prostatitis naturally versus using cipro (ciprofloxacin) as prescribed because of the driug's awful side effects. Is this wise?
No: Untreated prostatitis continues to cause inflammation of your prostate; it can cause irreparable damage, and the infection can spread to your bloodstream, causing septic shock. The "awful side effects" of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) are fairly rare; there are millions of people who have used Cipro (ciprofloxacin) without ill effect at all. If you have had adverse effects in the past, let your doctor know to change to another. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Prostatitis, alergic to cipro, (ciprofloxacin) on amox 10 day 3x week. Is that long enough to cure issue? Net says 4 -6 weeks? On day 5 with only minimal relief.
The Net is right: Prostatitis is a difficult problem to treat. The prostate has a relatively poor blood supply and poor antibiotic penetration. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) or Bactrim twice daily for a month is the treatment. Sometimes, this may need to be extended to another month of treatment because of continued prostate pain and infection. This one is a real hassle -- recovery is slow. Hang in there! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have prostatitis and have been given cipro (ciprofloxacin). Everything I have seen says cipro (ciprofloxacin) has horrible side effects/debilatating. How safe is cipro (ciprofloxacin)?
It's OK: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) has a number of side effects, just like any antibiotic does. It's no worse than others. It's been used for a while for a number of different infections and I use it quite frequently and am yet to see a significant side effect from it. As with any antibiotic, i recommend that you always take a probiotic supplement to prevent diarrhea associated with the use of antibiotic. Take an otc one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Safe, not adviseable: Safe but i doubt that your husband would be up to it. Prostatis is very painful and uncomfortable. It is better to wait until treatment has completed. Sometimes a second medication is added for pain and obstruction that can also occur. Sepsis can also occur depending on the acuity and age of the patient although less likely in someone at this age. ...Read more
I was prescribed 15mg Mobic and Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for prostatitis. How long will it take to take affect? Also does this combination interfere with Uroxotral?
May not help much: It sounds like you have an ongoing prostate problem (suggested by taking Uroxotral) and now maybe increased symptoms and your doctor is concerned about infection. Antibiotics like cipro (ciprofloxacin) often are tried in prostatitis in case it's a bacterial infection, but often it isn't and antibiotic doesn't help. If it does, improvement should start within 1-2 weeks. No drug interference. Work w/ your doctor. ...Read more
