Chronic prostatitis is hard to cure, so treatment aims to control the symptoms, states MedlinePlus. A doctor prescribes antibiotics, alpha-adrenergic blockers and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to control the condition.
A doctor prescribes long-term antibiotics to ensure bacteria is not the cause. If there is no improvement, the patient should stop using the medications. Alpha-adrenergic blockers help to ease the muscles of the prostate gland, and it takes up to six for these drugs to work, notes MedlinePlus. A doctor recommends nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for some men to help ease the symptoms. Chronic prostatitis is the swelling of the prostate gland and can be painful and distressing, states NHS Choices.
