Hello I have had prostatitis or some sort of infection "down there" for months now, and tried all sorts of antibiotics. Amoxicillin, bactrim, doxycycline, rocephin. They all showed slight improvement at first but then the infection came back full swing.
I recently went to a urologist who prescribed Cipro. I've taken it twice, but my prescription is for 30 days, once a day. I have shown marked improvement in the infection/pain. More so than any of the other treatments.
At the same time, I came across all this data online about tenden rupture, toxicity, retinal detachment, and loads of other scary side effects. I feel OK, but I've only taken two so far. I'm afraid to take more, but it is the only medication that has shown real improvement so far.
I am going back to my doctor tomorrow to ask for a different antibiotic that is safer. Is there any reason why this particular antibiotic seems to be working and not the others? Are there other antibiotics that fight similar bacteria that I haven't tried that aren't in the class of these scary flouride antibiotics!?
Also, in your humble opinion, if I have taken 2 pills so far and noticed no side effects, only improvement, is it safe to stay on cipro and finish the course?
Would appreciate any advice.
