Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

As you have been confirmed of having mild prostatitis and UTI(nocturia.
According to the culture sensitivity report you are already on i suggest you to continue them as per advise of your treating physician.

Regarding Alfusin10mg, which is effective in nocturia caused by BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).But it is negative by ultrasound in your case. So i dont think it will help you in this regard.

So i suggest you to complete full course of antibiotics as prescribed by your treating doctor and then go for culture sensitivity to rule out whether the infection is completely cured or not.

If you need any further clarifications,

Welcome back,

The frequency of the urination depends on the severity of infection. So once the infection is resolved, you should be feeling better - back pain, burning urination and frequency of urination will be better once the infection is resolved..

Based on the details provided, you should be able to see some progress day by day. If symptoms persist, the sensitivity of infective organism needs to be reviewed by tests. .

Prostatitis needs antibiotics for longer time because of the poor penetration of antibiotics in to prostatic tissue. Nevertheless, symptoms should recover gradually. So continue using antibiotics for correct course period recommended by your treating doctor.

Let me know if you need clarifications.
