Prostatitis is the most common urological disease today. And the reason for this is that the factors that lead to the development of prostatitis are very common in men's daily lives. In general, the treatment of prostatitis is a rather complicated process, which consists of a complex of procedures, medications, therapies and massages. To achieve disease remission and help avoid the pain symptoms of prostatitis, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, pain relievers, and immune system-strengthening medications help.
Methods of treating prostatitis with drugs
Several methods are generally recommended for treating prostate cancer, namely:
- Candles.Applied rectally, it affects metabolism in the prostate. For 30-40 minutes after application, it is recommended to remain in the supine position. The course lasts five to ten days. Contraindications: sensitivity to the components of suppositories. Possible side effects: allergies (itching and burning).
- Injections against prostatitis.The drugs also stimulate the immune system and strengthen the vascular system.
- instillations.This type of therapy allows the drug to be delivered directly to its destination - the drug is administered through the external opening of the urethra. It is recommended to inject about 5 ml of the drug mixture, while the bladder should be emptied before the procedure.
- Microclysters.This method is often called "folk" due to the use of infusions and decoctions of medicinal plants commonly used in traditional medicine. It is based on temperature and simultaneous medicinal effects, which increases its effectiveness. As a rule, it is recommended to carry out microclysters before going to bed - so that after the procedure the prostate does not succumb to tension and possible hypothermia. As medicines, infusions of water of sage, calendula, chamomile, mother herb are used. The solution is injected into the rectum (in an amount not exceeding 100 ml), where it must be absorbed. Microclysters are generally used in parallel with antibacterial drug treatment.
- Pills for the treatment of prostate.Most often, for the treatment of a disease such as prostatitis, broad-spectrum antibacterial agents are used, especially if the causative agent of the disease has not been identified. Such drugs can be divided into three groups: drugs from the tetracycline group, drugs from the penicillin series, drugs from the fluoroquinolone group.
Antibiotics for the treatment of prostatitis
Let's look at the last group of drugs for the treatment of prostatitis in more detail.
Fluoroquinolones are modern antibacterial agents that have been developed relatively recently. Because of this, they have quite a number of advantages over other broad-spectrum antibiotics. The drugs of this group practically do not cause immunodeficiency in patients. Representatives of fluoroquinolones have an even wider range of effects on microorganisms.
Tetracycline group preparations are used as an antibacterial treatment for prostatitis less frequently than fluoroquinolones. Typically, specialists prescribe antibiotics for chronic and infectious prostatitis. With a non-infectious form, the treatment method remains controversial and little explored.
In the treatment of prostatitis, antibacterial drugs are not prescribed immediately, but only after the doctor examines the patient for the infection. During this period, symptomatic therapy is usually recommended, which aims to combat inflammatory processes and pain symptoms.
Antibiotic treatment lasts about four weeks or more with mandatory clinical monitoring of the patient's condition. In the absence of a positive treatment result, antibacterial drugs are refused, but not earlier than two weeks from the start of the course.
After successful antibiotic therapy, a sufficiently long period of good health can be achieved in the patient. However, as a rule, painful sensations return with time, so treatment with antibacterial drugs alone should not be considered sufficient. Good results are obtained by a therapy program that aims to increase the body's local and general resistance to pathogenic factors. In that case, you can count on success, or at least a long remission.
Prostatitis: what to ask at the pharmacy?
Next, I would like to draw attention to the drugs for the treatment of the prostate, which today have gained popularity in the market and are the most purchased drugs for prostatitis.
Herbal preparation with Sabal palm fruit extract. The drug is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia of the first and second stages, as well as chronic prostatitis. Directions for use: Take one capsule a day after meals, drink plenty of fluids, do not chew. Contraindications: sensitivity to components. Side effects: gastralgia (occurs very rarely). If we evaluate the experience and the feedback of the patients, the tool today is the most bought.

The drug normalizes the processes of spermatogenesis and microcirculation, increases the tone of the bladder muscles.
