Levofloxacin is suitable for mild and moderate infections caused by sensitive bacteria, such as bronchitis, laryngitis, tonsillitis, and other bacterial inflammation. It also has an antibacterial effect on prostatitis.
The pharmacological action of levofloxacin
Levofloxacin is the levoform of ofloxacin, and its antibacterial activity in vitro is about twice that of ofloxacin. Because prostatitis is a kind of inflammation caused by pathogens, levofloxacin blocks the replication of bacterial DNA by inhibiting the activity of bacterial DNA. Thus, it can play the role of broad-spectrum antibacterial, improving the antibacterial effect, and improving the relevant prostate symptoms.

It can kill Gram-negative bacteria, such as Escherichia coli or Escherichia coli, and has a good effect on urinary system diseases. Therefore, it has a good effect on the treatment of acute prostatitis and chronic bacterial prostatitis.
Combined with cephalosporin antibiotics, the effect is better. But levofloxacin has no effect on aseptic prostatitis, and most of the prostate belongs to chronic non-bacterial prostatitis, accounting for 95% of chronic prostatitis. So before using, it is very important to know whether it is bacterial prostatitis or not.
However, if the patients have no obvious clinical symptoms, they can only find evidence of inflammation in the examination of the prostate, no special treatment is needed. But if it is caused by pathogen infection, such as chlamydia and mycoplasma infection, patients should be treated with relevant drugs, such as Chinese herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.

It can not only effectively kill pathogens, but also effectively eliminate all kinds of uncomfortable symptoms of patients. And it can help patients improve the internal environment of the urogenital system, enhance immunity, so as to achieve the effect of treating both causes and symptoms, and preventing its recurrence.
But it mainly lies in the patient's self-care, like drinking more water, frequently urinating every day, quit smoking, alcohol and spicy, stimulating food, avoiding sedentary. Warm sitz bath and bathing in hot water every day are helpful for warm water to enter into the prostate around the front wall of the rectum through the anus, so as to promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis of the prostate and help to control and relieve symptoms.
