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?

They're usually worth a try, but it's often best to stop after a couple of tries don't work and limit treatment to urine flow drugs, NSAIDs, etc. If documented bacterial infection, maybe consult with infectious disease specialist. ...Read more
