Please advice me the best recourse for further line of treatment
Could be due to side effect of the anti psychotic drugs.
Thanks for query .Based on the facts that you have posted your problem of burning urination and painful ejaculation could be due to one of the following three reasons .
1) Side effect of the anti psychotic drugs that you are taking
3) Enlarged prostate .
Please consult qualified Urologist again for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis
3) Serum PSA.
If the clinical findings and tests results rule out either Enlarged Prostate or Prostatitis you will need to discuss with your Psychiatrist to modify drugs for depression and insomnia .
Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
