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?

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.
