Not all chemical drugs can totally cure prostatitis. Since the prostate has a special structure that makes it harder for commonly taken chemical drugs, mainly antibiotics, to penetrate the organ, the patients always fail to treat prostatitis through antibiotics. But it doesn’t mean that these antibiotics are useless when facing prostatitis. Usually, there are several thing you should notice when using antibiotics. How to choose chemical drugs? Chronic prostatitis mainly includes chronic bacterial prostatitis and chronic non-bacterial prostatitis. Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis accounts for nearly 90% of all cases. There is no clear pathogenic bacteria for this type of prostatitis, so antibiotics are not necessarily needed for the treatment. On the other hand, bacterial prostatitis does require antibiotics. Doctors point out that a combination of these drugs is recommended to help enhance the healing effect. The doctor will choose the appropriate antibiotic type and determine the dose. If you decide to reduce dosage or shorten the period of treatment because of concerns about potential toxicity or adverse reactions, or some conditions in work and life, it may result in the pathogen resistance, the drug resistance enzyme, the spread of the infection and other symptoms. How long should the patient take the drug? It is generally suggested that the minimum time for antibiotic treatment for bacterial prostatitis is a month or four weeks. It is also important that the drugs should be stopped if symptoms do not be improved. But if symptoms has been improved after four weeks, treatment should be continued for two to four weeks to thoroughly eliminate the pathogen. If the pathogen causing inflammation is sensitive to the antibiotics the patient use, it will be completely killed in the treatment, so there is no need to continue to use antibiotics. If the pathogens are still alive after treatment, the other pathogens usually will be free of the effect of antibiotics. So the treatment plan should be reconsidered. How to tell whether the prostatitis is truly treated by antibiotics? Patients always care about whether the prostatitis is truly treated after using antibiotics for a certain period. The following are the common reference criteria you can count on. Symptoms you usually experience have disappeared, such as burning and pain when urinating, and urinary frequency and urgency. Rectal palpation of the prostate is normal or significantly improved. No pathogenic bacteria have been detected in prostatic fluid culture medium. The results of the segmented urine tests are normal. In addition to antibiotics, natural formula Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is also a helpful choice for patients with chronic prostatitis, which has a great ability to eliminate bacteria and relieve painful symptoms. What's more, it doesn't bring about drug resistance. Patients can take the pill at ease.
