Yes. Men with infectious prostatitis are treated with antibiotics. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Levaquin are too of the more common antiobiotics that are used because of their ability to penetrate the prostate tissue. However, antibiotic choice depends on a number of things including a patient's allergies and other medical history, whether or not they have had prior antibiotics, and the community bacterial pattern.
