Levofloxacin is an antibiotic which is usually taken as courses of 5-7 days. It is taken for 28 days in cases of chronic prostatitis. Chronic prostatitis usually develops gradually and may present with discomfort, recurrent urinary tract infections, lower back and testicular pain, pain and burning during urination, blood in the urine, incontinence and abnormal urine color. It may develop gradually.
There are two main types of chronic prostatitis - chronic bacterial prostatitis (caused by chronic bacterial infection) and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). Chronic prostatitis most commonly affects men between the ages of 30-50, but men of any age can be affected. Before taking the antibiotics, get your prostatic fluid examined for any infection. If bacterial infection is found out then antibiotics may be taken.
I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
