Been taking doxycycline 7 weeks prostatitus helped but not much can't take cipro (ciprofloxacin) need a stronger antibiotic what is another good choice?

Maybe none...: If doxycycline didn't clear it up, it is unlikely that any other antibiotic will do so. Most prostatitis isn't due to infection; antibiotics often tried but don't help much. Return to the doctor or clinic who prescribed treatment. If in doubt about doctor's expertise, you won't go wrong with one of your country's excellent NHS genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics. Or a urologist. Good luck! ...Read more

Also, SPIRONOLACTONE is much more effective, cheaper, and better tolerated than doxycy ...Read more
