To eliminate inflammatory changes in the tissues of the prostate, the urologist often prescribes certain medications for the treatment of prostatitis.
Do not assume that a modern pharmaceutical agent will help every man suffering from the disease to cope with the disease.
The choice of medication depends on many factors and in order to recover quickly and prevent the transition from acute to chronic prostatitis, it is necessary to select all therapy after a thorough examination.
Which pharmaceutical products are used to treat prostatitis
For the treatment of acute prostatitis, medications are always necessary. Without its use, it is impossible to achieve complete cessation of inflammation and restoration of prostate function.
The man must follow the entire course of therapy until the end, the disappearance of symptoms does not indicate a complete cure.
Therefore, if you stop taking the medications, this will become the main reason for the transition from inflammation of the prostate to the recurrent phase, that is, chronic.
The drugs are selected based on the data obtained during the exam and can be prescribed in complex therapies with herbal remedies and folk remedies.
The doctor must take into consideration the detection of a specific microflora in the smear, the clinical signs and the patient's complaints, data obtained during the instrumental examination of the prostate.
Based on this, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and restorative treatment is selected.
Depending on the course of the disease, all selected drugs are prescribed in the form of injections, pills. Sometimes, instillations are used.
Basically, they are prescribed by a urologist in the acute inflammation phase and, in most cases, they are antibiotics.
Injectable drugs allow you to quickly achieve the desired therapeutic effect, but injections for prostatitis are administered in a hospital setting.
For severe pain, anesthetic injections can also be used.
For the treatment of prostatitis, they can be used for a long time. Tablet medications include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, antispasmodics and muscle relaxants.
In the case of prostatitis, the use of drugs that improve metabolism is also important.
Recently, bioregulatory peptides are frequently prescribed to improve the regeneration of prostate cells.
This involves introducing a drug solution into the urethra with a specific mechanism of action.
The introduction of the drug in the urethra provides for the earlier disposal of bacterial flora and allows a faster recovery of the inflamed mucous layer.
Another dosage form for the treatment of prostatitis. Prostatitis candles are used as pain relievers and anti-inflammatories.
You can also replace suppositories with microclysters with medications, whose action aims to improve microcirculation in prostate tissues.
Dosage forms to be used in the treatment of a given patient can only be decided by a doctor.
Some sick men cannot go without injections, others can be cured using pills. The choice of the method of therapy depends on the stage of the disease.
In the chronic stage, pills are mainly used, but often need to be taken for a long time.
The most popular and widely used drugs for prostatitis
When choosing a therapeutic regimen for his patient, the urologist takes into account all possible contraindications and the sensitivity of the pathogens detected to the drugs.
Since acute prostatitis in most cases is still a bacterial infection, treatment therefore begins with the use of antibacterial drugs.
But it is not limited to that, the doctor additionally selects other medications that help to improve blood circulation, relieve spasms and help cells.
That is, all treatment consists of using several drugs at the same time, with a different mechanism of action.
Remedies for bacterial prostatitis
If prostatitis is determined to be caused by bacteria, antibiotics should be prescribed.
First, they choose drugs with a broad spectrum of action, that is, those that can be destroyed at once by various types of microbes.
- Cephalosporins are most often administered by injection. The drugs are administered intramuscularly or intravenously for at least 10 days;
- Penicillins are used in the form of tablets with a specially selected dosage;
- Fluoroquinols are used if there is an intolerance to antibiotics from other groups. The drug can be used for two weeks.
Treatment for acute prostatitis
In the case of prostatitis in the acute phase of the disease, in addition to antibacterials, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and antispasmodics are necessary.
Under his influence, the inflammation subsides more quickly and the pain disappears with discomfort.
- Antispasmodics are available in injections and tablets. In a hospital setting, they are administered intramuscularly for pain;
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can also be used in injections and tablets. If a man also has stomach disorders, it is better to use injectable drugs, as this group of drugs adversely affects the mucous layer of the organ. Most of the time, injections or suppositories are used today.
Treatment of viral prostatitis
Viral prostatitis is rare. In addition to the influence of the virus on the development of the disease, a certain role is played, in this case, by the reduced immunity of man.
Among the agents that cause this form of the disease are the herpes simplex virus, the influenza virus and the infection with the human papillomavirus.
In addition to anti-inflammatory agents and microcirculation enhancers, the doctor prescribes antiviral drugs for the treatment of viral prostatitis.
You also need funds that increase immunity.
Medicines that relieve muscle spasms
Muscle relaxants in the treatment of prostatitis are necessary to reduce the tone of tense muscles. This reduces pain and makes it easier to urinate.
Medicines that improve blood circulation
In any prostatitis, circulatory disorders are always detected, which leads to the appearance of stagnation and does not allow the recovery of organ tissues.
Therefore, in complex treatments, it is necessary to use medications that improve blood circulation.
To normalize the filling of the blood vessels, a preparation with horse chestnut extract is used.
Other drug groups
As already mentioned, the selection of treatment by the doctor is based on much data revealed during the examination. And therefore, the treatment regimen of a patient with prostatitis can differ significantly from the treatment regimen of another patient.
In the case of prostatitis, immunomodulators are often prescribed additionally, under the influence of which the work of the immune system is improved more quickly.
In the chronic stage of the disease, an injectable medication is used, which strengthens blood vessels, improves cell regeneration and has a positive effect on urination.
In the treatment of prostatitis, this medicine is used repeatedly in cycles of 5-6 injections.
Biological supplements in the form of pills are popular.
These preparations contain a complex of trace elements that have a positive effect on prostate tissue.
Treatment of prostatitis should not be an independent choice. You cannot just go to the pharmacy and choose medications to restore prostate function.
This approach leads to the transition from acute to chronic prostatitis and is one of the causes of sexual dysfunction in the future.
A medical examination will allow you to accurately identify the cause of the disease and eliminate it with the help of a specific group of drugs.
In the drug therapy process, the urologist constantly monitors the changes that occur and, therefore, can adjust the medication intake, seeking to improve the effectiveness of the treatment.
Every man should remember that the appearance of pain and discomfort when urinating and only at rest is sufficient reason to go to the hospital.
Timely treatment of prostatitis with drugs and medication will completely free the patient from many problems in the future.
