In brief: Symptom relief

True bacterial prostatitis should be treated with an extended course of appropriate antibiotics.
At times, your physician may prescribe other medications including non-steriodal anti-inflammatory, anticholinergics, alpha-blockers to help treat the symptoms. However, bacterial prostatitis should improve with antibiotic therapy.
