Is Doxycycline A Reasonable 1st Choice To Treat A Prostate Infection
The prostate is a gland that lies at the base of the bladder and surrounding a segment of urethra. It secretes a milky fluid that is discharged by excretory ducts into the urethra during the emission of semen. It is clinically important because enlargement of the prostate with age, and prostate cancer are two common ...Read more
Been on doxycline almost 30 days for prostate infection, I don't feel any better. How long does take for medicine to kick in?
I have pain that relates to prostatitis and have tried bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and doxycycline and also a round of Flagyl in case I had some other infection.
Chronic Prostatitis: I wold advise a couple of things. I think the naturopaths may have some advice for you as well and you may want to google naturopathic treatment of chronic prostatitis. Your antibiotic treatment choices are missing Cipro (ciprofloxacin) or any treatment for gonorrhea. Where you tested for gonorrhea and/or chlamydia? Have you tried saw palmetto the herb designed to help shrink a swollen prostate?See 1 more doctor answer
Prostatitis: Antibiotic along w non steroidal anti inflammatory (NSAID) are the most common medications used to treat prostate infection. Common antibiotics : cipro, (ciprofloxacin) bactrim. Common NSAID : Ibuprofen, naproxen. Usually an extended course of treatment > 2 weeks is needed because medications do not penetrate the prostate easily.
My doctor first said I may have prostate infection and prescribed me leflox 250 for 5 days still no result. What other treatment do u prefer Drrobert?
Longer treatment: Most prostate infections are treated with 30 days of antibiotics. Go back and see your doctor to see if you need longer treatment.
What could cause pain below the belly button when urinating? Already been treated for UTI and prostate infection.
Here are some. ..: To delve into the cause for your symptoms, doc needs to analyze the specific timing, degree, duration, & progress of the pain below belly button as well as voiding pattern. Conduct physicals, and testing urine (UA, residual urine) so to deduce if the pain is related with bladder or somewhere outside it. So, work with Doc hoping to reveal its cause & Rx/care. Besides, never ignore healthy lifestyle
Avoid spicy food: Prepare bland food. Avoid spicy or fried foods. Be supportive.
Several issues!: Chronic prostatitis is not always a current bacterial infection, but an immune reaction to bacterial debris within the prostate gland. If your prostatic secretions reveal a specific bacteria, then a culture with sensitivity will guide you to the appropriate antibiotic. Many cases of chronic "bacterial" prostatitis occur because treatment periods are to short!
ST yeast infection: Prostate infections are generally bacterial and really do not transmit from the person to their partner. The yeast infections have been linked actually to oral sex rather than other forms of intercourse. It's hasn't been shown to help to treat both partners for the yeast infection, but you can try acidophilus to help keep the infections to a minimum.
How common are serious side effects with the drug Bactrim? Is this drug safer than Cipro (ciprofloxacin)? I'm taking it for a prostate infection.
Prostate infection: Assuming your doc didn't have lab data demonstrating bacteria & antibiotic resistance (commonly referred to as culture & sensitivity), Cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin is better than Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole at getting into the prostate. All quinolones like Cipro (ciprofloxacin) carry a Black Box warning against tendonitis & tendon rupture, which while rare, is more common in elderly patients. Check out www. Drugs. Com for info
Yes: Our white blood cells are good markers for infection and inflammation. If the prostate has an infection, absolutely, your white blood cell count is likely to go up.
Prostatitis: Chlamydia is not known to infect the prostate. Most prostatitis is not due to any known infection;. Antibiotics are tried, typically for 4-6 weeks, but usually don't make any difference. If you had a positive test for chlamydia and have prostatitis, you have two separate problems. Chlamydia requires only a single dose of azithromycin, or 7 days of doxycycline.

No: Usually a guy never figures out how he got his prostatitis, but this just isn't possible. Some teens can damage themselves by squeezing at the last moment to prevent emission of sperms -- this is a cultural (i'd say superstitious) practice that's been written up in the medical journals; please don't do this, as this can cause pain and perhaps damage to the prostsate & vesicles.See 2 more doctor answers
Varicocele: No, not related at all.Get a more detailed answer ›
