I have prostatitis, but also take sotalol (80 mg twice/day).

Customer Question

I have prostatitis, but also take sotalol (80 mg twice/day). What antibiotic is safe to take with sotalol. Apparently cipro is NOT safe? Thank you for advice.

Hello

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

Bactrim (trimethoprim sulfamethoxazole) is an antibiotic that can be used with sotalol without problem.

mysticdoc :

Hence, Bactrim can be taken for the treatment of prostatitis

mysticdoc :

Dicloxacillin is another antibiotic that can be used with sotalol without any interaction.
