Is Doxycycline Effective in Treating Frequent Urination Caused by Prostatitis?
When treating prostatitis symptoms, for example, frequent urination, prostatitis patients will think of taking antibiotics such as doxycycline. However, this notion is radically wrong. Doxycycline is a common drug used in the clinical treatment of prostatitis, but it is not effective for all prostatitis. Doxycycline only has certain effects on patients with bacterial prostatitis.

Doxycycline belongs to the tetracycline class of broad-spectrum antibiotics. Microorganisms have close cross-resistance to this antibiotic with tetracycline and oxytetracycline. The oral absorption of this drug is proven effective. It is used mainly for upper respiratory tract infections, tonsillitis, biliary tract infections, lymphadenitis, cellulitis, chronic bronchitis in the elderly caused by sensitive gram-positive bacteria and gram-negative bacilli, etc. 
It is also used to treat typhus, Qiang Worm disease, mycoplasma pneumonia, etc. Besides, it can treat tetanus and other allergic patients. Its specific use can be consulted with the treating physician. Different methods are used for different patients with various infections. Therefore, doxycycline should never be abused.
Also, doxycycline may produce many adverse reactions. For example, 20% of the patients will have gastrointestinal reactions, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. The adverse reactions can be reduced when the drug is taken after meals. In addition, doxycycline may also produce certain adverse reactions, such as hepatotoxicity, phototoxicity, nephrotoxicity, brain pseudotumor, and vestibular reaction. 
Long-term use may lead to dual infections, such as drug-resistant staphylococcus aureus, gram-negative bacteria, and fungi. So prostatitis patients must take it only after an objective assessment of their condition by their doctor and must not take it on their own in case of severe adverse consequences.
Doctors are cautious when treating frequent urination caused by prostatitis with antibiotics in clinical practice. The medication is usually carefully administered with great caution based on the patient's drug sensitivity time. Prostatitis, such as non-bacterial prostatitis, does not require antibiotics because they are ineffective for this disease. Doxycycline is only effective for prostatitis that is caused by a bacterial infection.
In addition, each person's constitution and absorption rate of the drug is different, and some patients may be allergic to this drug. Hence, doxycycline is not effective for every prostatitis patient. When the patient has a mild urinary frequency condition, there may need not to use antibiotics. Their symptoms may be greatly relieved if they change their habits and get more rest. In this case, the doctor is likely not to recommend using doxycycline. After all, this medicine may be harmful to the body.
In contrast, the choice of herbal medicine to treat frequent urination caused by prostatitis is free of side effects and safe. For example, the herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can effectively kill bacteria, reduce inflammation and eliminate swelling. 
With its broad-spectrum antibacterial properties, this medicine can eradicate many bacteria and viruses, as well as mycoplasma and chlamydia, which cause diseases in the male genitourinary system. More importantly, Its clinical effect is satisfactory.
Because there are more types of prostatitis, it is important to distinguish the cause when treating it and make an accurate diagnosis before choosing doxycycline. Although this antibiotic is ordinary, it has merely a general clinical effect on the treatment of prostatitis. So patients should seek help from a professional doctor in time and choose the right medication.
