that particular antibiotic is generally prescribed for prostatitis. it's also the cheapest. there are others that are given in once a day dosing called levaquin. did your doctor do a PSA blood test? this is a test to determine if the prostate is overactive and will help rule out other problems. this test was helpful for me because it help my doctor diagnose my prostate cancer before it spreaded. not intended to alarm you! get the test done and inquire about a course of levaquin
I have a very good friend who has an enlarged prostate and he takes a medication called "Flomax". This seems to help him a lot. Maybe mention it to your doctor as a possibility for you----- or change doctors! It's your life we are talking about here and the quality of your life. There is no reason for needless suffering in my opinion.
I was a Flomax user and when I went to Iceland I tried a new product called Sagapro
I now use sagapro and have given up on the Flomax which did not work well on me.
Go to the web site www.sagamedicausa.com i was amazed at how it helped my swollen prostate, and it was all natural made from angelica.
My friends in Iceland tell me sagapro is now outselling Flomax and you dont need a doctors note.
I have heard about the Iceland product and told it works....I may try it next month.
Is Sagapro available in the USA?
Whatever you do, just be careful of the levaquin...the side effects can be very dangerous. From what ive heard, the fda has some sort of black label warning on this drug, the most severe warning a drug can have...next is to pull it off the shelf. I was on Levaquin for 5 days and have experienced much of the same side effects of others.
hey man, im only 24 and have gone through the same ****. they cant find anything right? so dont take there ****** drugs. i am on my way to curing this myself. research candida infection. im telling you it'll be your saving grace, and for some reason doctors always say that's a women thing, cause its basicallly a "yeast infection". just look at different sites for different symptoms, and dont be sceptical. if antibiotics dont work you gotta try an anti-candida diet. im tellin you. you'll read this and eventually try when nothing else works. its a really hard diet to follow, but you can do it. tell me, after ejaculation(maybe in the past) has it kinda hurt to pee with a clear non-stinky discharge, not like an std, but a little different, i bet you have had this and thought it was normal or nothing to wory about because it goes away real quick, and may have only occured a few times. well for all of you who have non bacterial prostatitis and cant stand it i beg you to look into the candida thing. i have only gone a month on this "mccombs plan" thing, but it is just starting to pay off. i feel obligated to tell everyone on every forum because they have helped me take the chance to try this diet, and im convinced i have found a cure.
I am going to the doctor tomorrow for non bacterial prostitis after being in the ER. I am on flomax and an antibiotic. I will tell them about this. I have these systems! Thank you for the heads up....
