Detailed Answer:

Thanks for choosing me at health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.prostatis can be very discomforting and troublesome.

In last 15 years lot many changes have occured among the antibiotics. Firstly the treatment should be using oral antibiotics. The oral antibiotics that would be useful are Azithromycin, Cephelexin, Cefexime.
All three were probably not available 15 yrs back but are useful. The best way would be to get a culture and sesnitivity test of your urine and semen and identify the right antibiotic and take it. The treatment for prostate infection take longer time than others.
If the oral medications are not helping then the IV medications should be tried. They will be effective.
Regarding the herb that you have mentioned , we have not used it in India and it would be difficult to comment on it. However if its not helping you anymore, its bettef you leave it.

Have patience, and things will be fine again.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
