Hello!

Are you allergic to any medicines ?

Cipro may be effective but we have to be careful with long term use due to potential it can weaken tendons ...

Septra may be an option for you

If prostate gets infected then it may cause difficult to clear UTI ...

Urine cultures help to test bacteria vs various antibiotics for sensitivity/ resistance ...

I hope this information is helpful for you

Let me know If you have further questions or concerns

I Will be happy to get back with you
