Unlike common infections, antibiotics are needed in prostatitis for a duration of 4 to 6 weeks. Analgesics are given to manage the acute symptoms for a brief period of time. Prostate alpha-blocker drugs are given to improve antibiotic penetration into the prostate gland. Many medications continue to be taken in chronic or persistent cases for a long period of time.
