Ciprofloxacin Can Treat Prostatitis; How about Cefprozil?

Prostatitis is a very common male urological disease; clinical treatment methods are varied; the most commonly used is the antibiotic drug treatment method. There are many types of antibiotics with different antimicrobial and treatment effects.

Ciprofloxacin is a synthetic third-generation quinolone antimicrobial with broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties, effectively treating prostatitis. Due to side effects, patients should follow the doctor's instructions when using it.

So, can cefprozil as an antibiotic cure prostatitis?


Cefprozil is the second generation of cephalosporin antibiotics; its antibacterial spectrum is relatively broad, for a variety of gram-positive bacteria have apparent antibacterial effects, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Streptococcus oxysporus and so on. Clinically, it is mostly used to treat infectious diseases of the respiratory tract, urinary tract, skin, and soft tissue caused by sensitive bacteria. Therefore, cefprozil can treat prostatitis.

However, there are limitations to the therapeutic eff

icacy of cefprozil in three main areas:

1. Limited types of treatment. Cephalosporin antibiotics such as cefprozil can treat acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis. Acute bacterial prostatitis is most often caused by infections with gram-negative bacilli such as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus or Pseudomonas, and cephalosporin antibiotics such as cefprozil are effective. Chronic bacterial prostatitis is also mostly caused by Escherichia coli, Aspergillus, Klebsiella infections, etc. Cephalosporin antibiotics are also effective against the above pathogens.

Most chronic prostatitis belongs to chronic non-bacterial prostatitis. This kind of prostatitis pathogen is unclear and may be caused by mycoplasma, chlamydia, fungi, viruses, and other infections. Erythromycin, metronidazole, and other antibiotics that cover the above pathogens are generally used, and cephalosporin is more difficult to treat infections caused by the above pathogens.

2. The treatment is not effective. There is a layer of lipid-like membrane of the prostate; this film protects the prostate. Many drugs are not easy to penetrate, so the therapeutic effect on the prostate is not apparent. Cephalosporins also have difficulty penetrating this membrane layer, so the treatment effect is not noticeable. If the patient has chronic prostatitis, it is recommended to use doxycycline hydrochloride, clarithromycin, azithromycin, or erythromycin and other drugs for treatment; these drugs deal with stronger and can enter the prostate gland smoothly to achieve the effect of treatment. Quinolone anti-inflammatory drugs, such as levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin hydrochloride, can also be used, but specific side effects exist.

3. There are side effects, such as drug resistance. When using cefprozil, patients should follow the regulations for adequate dosage and course of treatment, not intermittent use or long-term use. Otherwise, it is easy to produce drug resistance and other side effects.

Therefore, for chronic prostatitis, more and more patients choose traditional Chinese medicine treatments, such as Diuretics and Anti-inflammatory Pill. It is made of natural herbs and will not produce side effects such as drug resistance. Moreover, its herbal ingredients can penetrate the plasma membrane of the prostate, and the medicinal effect directly reaches the lesion area, eliminating the inflammation from the root and restoring the normal function of the prostate.

Cefprozil is therapeutic for treating bacterial prostatitis and is available in various dosage forms such as capsules, dispersible tablets, dry suspension, injections, etc., and patients should use it under the guidance of doctors. Cefprozil capsules should be avoided with milk and fruit juice not to affect the drug's effectiveness. During the taking of cefprozil, patients should also avoid drinking alcohol, eating spicy and stimulating food, trying to eat a light diet, and eating more vitamin-rich vegetables and fruits, which will help the disease recovery.
