Thanks for contacting HCM.

I a sorry to hear that you have been having problems with chronic prostatitis. This is a very difficult infection to fully eradicate. In my practice I have treated patient with an oral antibiotic like Levofloxacin for 4 weeks. In addition taking the tamsulosin will help but that will take months to fully work. In my practice I would also a medication to stop your bladder spasms that are causing you to run to the bathroom so frequently. I would add Oxybutynin once or twice daily to reduce that frequency.

Hope this answers your question. Please contact us again for any of your medical questions.
