Levofloxacin is a very effective antibiotic against UTIs of all kinds including prostatitis. However, it is always better to have a semen culture done to find out which antibiotic the pathogens are sensitive to.

Hope this helps.

Ok doc i have symptomps like frequently urinate and burning on top of my penis and somtime itchy irritating and clear sticky discharge in every morning and when i masturbate i feel pain once my cum come out but i get 3 tested on 3 different doctor negative on chlamydia gonoreha and trichomoniasis right now im on 4weeks of doxocycline that my urolgy give it to me but i still have symptomps
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 11 months ago

You need to wait for the course of Doxycycline to finish and then get a culture and sensitivity test done before drawing any conclusions about the persistence of infection. I would also suggest that you avoid masturbation for a few days to let the inflammation in the prostate subside.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
