Common Questions and Answers about Cipro for prostate infection


the doc seemed to think an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te was enlarged and prescribed then didn't send in the script for flow max I'm back on cipro but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> hopeful that it will work and think I need doxy
Penile discharge and foul smelling urine suggest of infection. But this infection could be due to routine urinary tract infection or STD. Due to an enlarged prostrate there is a chance of retention of urine, due to which there an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean> more chances of developing infection. I suggest that you get a STD panel done along with urine analysis and culture to confirm the cause. all the best.
If it is possible to pass other things on, it should be possible that an uncontroled infection could be passed on as well. For an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan>self however, each time that I had a prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection or a UTI, I have never been interested in sexual contact during that time. Most of the times to clear up an infection, I was put on Cipro 500mg for about a month at a time. It could be that one would still have an infection but has started to feel well enough to no longer feel the effects of the infection.
is there a cure like cipro, doxycycline for prostatitis? which prostate test should I have done?
antibiotics do an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> penetrate very well into the prostate and hence, for any infection of the prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te, antibiotic therapy needs to be prescribed for a longer duration than for other infections. The average treatment duration for prostatitis can extend from 2 weeks to 8 weeks or even longer. Your urologist may extend the treatment even longer if required or switch you to aan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan>her antibiotic if response to treatment is inadequate.
Hi, a negative urine test need an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> indicate an infection of the prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te. It is possible that there could be an infection of the prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te or just an inflammation of the prostate causing your urine an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptomsan>. Have you ever been put on medication specific for relief of your prostate an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptomsan>, such as Flomax, Hytrin, etc.? It is possible, given your age, that you could be having an abacterial inflammation of the prostate (given that the antibiotics do an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> seem to have helped an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muchan>.
I switched doctors (from a family practitioner to an internal medicine)who suspected a prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection (spongy) and put me on Cipro for 30 days, 500mg-2x a day. Things feel an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>betteran>, but the paraesthesias feeling, which was present at the beginning before drugs persists. I am still having lower back aches, but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> as bad as before. Is this still prostate related (prostatitus)? I have no known allergies to date. Thank you for any input.
He also did urine checks for infection – came back clean. He suggested the varicoecele might be the cause and sent me to a vascular surgeon. The surgeon undertook an embolization of the left side. For a few days, the pain went away. about a week later, it was back. and more so than ever. acute pain and the left side of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> scrotum swelled up like a balloon. I went back to the vascular surgeon, that performed an ultrasound and said the left epididymis was inflamed.
It sure seems like it is an infection of some type when I wake up in the middle of the night. He gave me the option of Cipro 500mg twice daily for 2 weeks and I have it now. Haven’t started it yet. I’m thinking since I’m still relatively early in the prostatitis disease process this might help? The Cipro stories scan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean> the crap out of me, but so do the prostatitis stories. any input is appreciated. I will be sure to update an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> story as it progresses. Thanks!

Good day, I am a Type II Diabetic who has acquired a prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> doctor started me on 500mg Cipro (2 times a day) last Friday, when I experienced a fever with additional an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptomsan> (perineal pain, burning sensation while urinating--all slowly developing over a few weeks). The an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptomsan> have certainly subsided an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> almost a week of the anitbiotic, but I still "feel" the infection (some burning sensations in the penis and some perineal pain, though greatly diminished).
Do I have to wait more time for the medicines to take effect, or is it possible that the infection might be resistant to the treatment? also, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean> the treatments for rectal gonorrhea the same, or if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan>, which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean> such treatments?

I had the cystoscopy and then went on a course of Cipro and a muscle relaxant for the bladder neck. Things went ok towards the end of the cipro and allot of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> problems went for a very short while. The preassure feeling came back very quickly and I was urinating more frequently again. I go for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> check up to the Urology on the 20th May to see how things have gone. I think I have singled it down to one problem but I need to know if this is a big problem or an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan>.
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> reading up on prostate treatment, I've seen where the avodart would take weeks if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> months to be effective on the prostate, also it takes more than a week of cipro to effectively treat a prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection.She didn't schedule a follow up but did allow for three refills on the cipro as well as the avodart. the avodart is a thirty day script. I've refilled the cipro and continued aan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan>her week. While the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptomsan> seem to be an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>betteran> I wonder if I'm just getting used to the feeling.

I do an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> have health insurance and got a friend to prescribe Cipro for me to clear up an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> infection. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> reading the new black box warning on Cipro I am very nervous and reluctant to take it, mainly because of the reports of sudden tendon rupture.

I've been on Cipro and advil for thirty days to relieve the burinng pain and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> constant need to urinate. I have good days but latter in the day it starts up again. Urologist want to take biopsy but is waiting for inflamation to go away. It is ruining an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> life.

about a year ago I was diagnosed with a prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> primay complaint was, and still is, chronic pain in the prostate an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean>a. I was given antibiotics (Biaxin). The pain began to subside several days an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran>, but returned an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> about three weeks (while still taking the drugs). I switched to a different antibiotic (Cipro), and the same thing happened: the pain began to subside, only to return 3-4 weeks into the treatment.
Could this just be residual inflammation or is it possible I could still have a bacterial infection an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> the arsenal of antibiotics I was on? Thanks for any suggestions.
Hi, I have been suffering from prostatitis since about the age of 22-23 up to current age of 44. I have been placed on Cipro for many times, this is to ensure that any infection will be clean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean>d up. To deal with the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptomsan> I have had Buscopan tabs as well as Indocid (an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> sure about spelling of this) suposetries. It gives some relief, but at worst a hot bath will give short term relief. Other than this I am an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> awan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean> of anything that would be of benfit.
Went to ER for the pain, got IV gentymiasin and IV cipro and started oral cipro. Saw urologist. Ultrasound showed fluid collection. Since then I’ve been back to the ER for more IV antibiotics (this time they gave me rosyphilin??); and I continue to suffer. and so now have had two different IV antibiotic occasions, and 10 days of cipro, followed by 9 days of septra ds, followed by a few days of keflex, and I was switched to levoquin? (something like that).
about a year ago I was diagnosed with a prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> primay complaint was, and still is, chronic pain in the prostate an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean>a.

I know HIV risk to be low. I asked about NGU as possible cause for prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection. Doc said no way to test for that and, if it was cause, Cipro would knock that out of me anyway. So here I am, feeling like I dodged a bullet but still worried. Seems crazy to develop a prostate infection so soon an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> encounter when it had never been a problem before.
Prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection and Cipro posted by HFHS M.D.-KR on January 14, 1998 at 10:50:32: Just wanted to thank you for the information and apoligize for the above post if it sounded a bit terse. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> nerves have been frayed since I contracted this infection. The an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptomsan> continue to improve--very slowly. I take an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> last Cipro tablet on Friday, but plan on contacting an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> doctor to have the antibiotic treatment extended. Thanks for your help....
However to be honest i dont like, nor trust an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> doctor, who has fobbed me off before for a different condition that i turned out to have.What i want to know is is it possible for a man of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> age to get cancer of the prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te and should i seek a second opinion?
) I immediatley visited an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> doctor who did a dre and said i had an enlarged prostate, possibly down to prostatitis and prescribed cipro. This helped a little but never took it away totally, i was taking it for around 12 weeks with no complete resolution, it took some of the pain away but i still had a constant urge to go producing urine every 15 - 20 mins, it however did an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> hurt to urinate.
I had a good idea that it was a prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection so I called the doctor for the soonest appointment. They tested an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> urine and did a prostate exam (confirmed infection via manual exam) and I left with a prescription for Doxy. I should mention that I had no burning Thursday or Friday (21/22). I started taking the Doxy immediately since I was going out of town for a trip that weekend. Saturday I experienced overwhelming fatigue - may have been the 5 hour drive - I'm uncertain.
The next day, significant prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te pain and increasing urethral discomfort. Went to ER, prescribed Cipro 2x day (250mg each) for 10 days and 1g Zithromax. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptomsan> resolved in 48 hours but now still on Cipro and 6 days an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> Zithromax and pain has returned to urethra as bad as before but now no real discomfort in prostate. What's next? What do I possibly have? Is what I have contagious?
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> doctor said an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> urinalysis results (Greater than 100,000 FU/ml of Ecol) for e-coli and fast response to cipro were definitive for an e-coli UTI/prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection despite it being ran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean> in young men (I am 30). The diagnosis of chronic non infectious prostatitis has been discussed as a result of damage from the initial acute e-coli infection. So none of this would make you consider herpes? is e-coli and irritation rash reasonable?
In february 08, I had back and some joint pain as well as pain in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> penis and testicles, so i went to the doctor and was told i had a prost<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te infection. he did a urine test to test for chlaan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan>dia (since an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> g/f had been diagnosed in october and we were both treated) and was negative.
