Is Cipro effective and safe for epididymitis?

I am a 63 year old man on my third day of cipro for epididymitis. I am reading troubling reports of chronic problems. I assumed this would be cleared up in days or less. I am still having pain and swelling but maybe it s a bit better pain wise today

Hi,
Cipro is good antibiotic medicine for this type of infection.
Once antibiotic medicine start working you will feel better.
Go for long course of this antibiotic.
Take plenty of water as well.
At this age possibility of having prostate enlargement or prostatitis should be ruled out.
Ok and take care.
