I have been on the same thing. Postatitis started a year ago and even though it is better now, it still comes and goes. Still have a feeling in the testicle that something is not right, but had many tests that show it can't be anything else. I was on cipro and it didn't seem to work all that much, and it does cause all sorts of problems. I made me physically sick and a doctor told me that it was not possible - yet I was fine when stopped taking it. I also get a sore feeling in my stomach and sore nipples believe it or not. Be careful using cipro. I was also on Tequin - I think that was the name - for prostatitis and it seemed to work better.
