Today, prostatitis is a very common disease among middle-aged men. Scientists around the world have not been able to find the true cause of the appearance of this ailment, but they have deduced a pattern. Most often, prostatitis affects people whose close relatives have suffered from a similar illness. Here are some of the most effective medications used to treat prostatitis. But do not forget that you should start treating the disease only after consulting a urologist.
The use of antibacterial drugs for the treatment of prostatitis is currently considered the most effective method. Its benefits have been proven over many years of practice. These drugs have a very wide variety, which in turn allows the treating physician to select drugs, depending on the type of prostatitis. The effect of these drugs is that they completely kill the harmful microorganisms that cause inflammation.
Another important advantage of the use of such drugs is that antibacterial components can accumulate in the tissues of the prostate gland and, therefore, increase their concentration in human blood. For the effective treatment of chronic prostatitis, doctors use drugs from the group of fluoroquinolones.
The course of use of antibacterial drugs lasts about 4 to 12 weeks. But do not forget that you must first identify the symptoms, and treatment with antibacterial drugs will be much more effective.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
In addition to eliminating the causes of prostatitis, there are other challenges in treating this disease. After all, a sick man constantly experiences unpleasant pain in the groin area. If these sensations simply become intolerable, the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is prescribed, which have an excellent analgesic spectrum. They are usually taken in the form of anal pills or suppositories.
Excruciating pain in the groin area can be caused not only by inflammatory processes, but also by muscle spasms of the perineum. With these symptoms, medications that can relax the relevant muscle groups will be most effective. They can be both muscle relaxants and antispasmodics.
With pronounced urination problems, so-called alpha blockers can help. They will help affect the smooth muscles found in the wall of the bladder and the prostate gland. Usually a urologist prescribes a 6-month course for taking these drugs. They help to normalize the urine output and improve the secretion of secretions from the prostate itself.
