The most effective medications for prostatitis

Prostatitis has become a common disease not only among men over 50, but also among young people. One of the reasons is self-medication: the use of inappropriate medicines for prostatitis does not eliminate the disease, it only alleviates the symptoms. The choice of medication must be justified by the type of disease and the nature of its course.
