Chronic bacterial prostatitis= raised WBC and presence of bacteria

Inflammatory CHronic prostatitis/ Chronic abacterial prostatitis= WBC raised, no bacteria

Non-inflammatory Chronic prostatitis(prostadynia?)= no raised WBC, and no bacteria

Default Alfuzosin for Prostatic Hyperplasia

I was affected by Prostatic Hyperplasia. I took Alfuzosin. It took a few days for me to feel any noticeable difference. Once it worked its way into the system, it acted as described and provided relief with almost no side affects. The one thing I can not stress more is to make sure it is taken consistently (same time every day) for maximum effect and relief.
