I was prescribed 15mg Mobic and Cipro for prostatitis. How long will it take to take affect? Also does this combination interfere with Uroxotral?

I was prescribed 15mg Mobic and Cipro for prostatitis.  How long will it take to take affect?  Also does this combination interfere with Uroxotral?

May not help much: It sounds liek 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 often are tried in prostatitis in case it's a bacterial infection, but usually it isn't and the antibiotic doesn't help. If it does, improvement should start within 1-2 weeks. No drug interference. Work w/ doctor. ...Read more
