Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Bacterial Prostatitis and have been taking antibiotics since two weeks.

Bacteria Prostatitis takes long time to get cured hence one has to take antibiotics for more than 4-6 weeks.

Combination of Sulphamethoxole and Trmethoprim is proved to be more effective in bacterial Prostatitis,Please start taking it with consultation of your Urologist .

Ensure to drink more water to keep urine dilute.

Please if possible have a prostatic massage by a trained hospital staff every day, this will help to reduce the congestion of the prostate and to be free from infection earlier.
