Prostatitis is an inflammatory disease of the prostate gland in men with dangerous consequences for male reproductive health. Prostatitis can be cured with inexpensive and effective medications that eliminate painful sensations and swelling, enhance local immunity, and accelerate the renewal and regrowth of prostate tissue.
Features of drug therapy for prostatitis
Prostatitis is an inflammatory lesion of the prostate gland, which can occur in an acute or chronic stage, and has a variety of causes. Medications for the treatment of the disease are selected individually, depending on its form and stage, as well as the age and general health of the man.
Medications for the treatment of chronic prostatitis in men:
- antibacterial drugs;
- alpha blockers;
- anti-inflammatory drugs;
- rectal suppositories;
- glucocorticosteroids (steroid hormones);
- muscle relaxation;
- vitamin complex.
Prostatitis can be bacterial or non -bacterial. In the first case, pathogenic microorganisms (staphylococci, streptococci) cause the disease, in the second - congestion in the pelvic area.
When choosing the most effective method of treatment, the cause of the development of the disease must be taken into account, which is determined based on the results of laboratory tests.
An effective drug for the treatment of prostatitis
Home drug therapy aims to eliminate the root cause of the disease, inhibit the development of inflammatory processes, as well as eliminate pain and discomfort.
The most effective drug should be selected only by the doctor based on the type of causative agent of the disease, its severity, as well as the age and state of health of the man.
Antibiotic therapy for prostatitis
Antibiotics are mandatory pharmacological agents in the treatment of acute or bacterial prostatitis in adult patients. Antibacterial drugs destroy pathogenic microorganisms that provoke the development of acute or chronic inflammatory processes.
List of fast -acting antibiotics for the treatment of prostatitis:
- fluoroquinolones - Ofloxacin, Norfloxacin, Ciprofloxacin, Lomefloxacin;
- tetracycline - Oxytetracycline, Doxycycline;
- penicillin - Amoxiclav, Amoxicillin;
- macrolides - Erythromycin, Azithromycin, Clarithromycin, Doxycycline.
Fluoroquinolones are broad -spectrum antibiotics, so they are prescribed for various forms and severity of inflammation. If the prostate is a chronic and advanced form, macrolides or tetracycines will be most effective.
The duration of antibiotic therapy for inflammation of the prostate gland is at least 4 weeks. For the treatment of prostatitis, antibacterial drugs are taken, produced in various pharmacological forms. These can be tablets for oral use, rectal suppositories, intravenous or intramuscular injections.
Use of anti-inflammatory drugs
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed if the development of prostatitis is not associated with bacterial pathogens or antibiotic therapy does not bring the expected results.
The best anti-inflammatory drugs for prostatitis:
- Tolperison hydrochloride;
- Oil palm fruit extract;
Anti-inflammatory drugs quickly relieve the symptoms of inflammatory processes, reduce muscle tone. Such pharmacological agents prevent the development of inflammation, eliminate swelling and have a significant analgesic effect.
With prolonged use, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have a negative effect on the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal tract, therefore such drugs are taken in the short term (up to 5-7 days) with mandatory weekly breaks. Pharmacy not only relieves cramps in the pelvic area, but also restores normal body temperature, reduces the likelihood of thrombosis, normalizes the function of the prostate gland completely.
Treatment with alpha blockers
Alpha blockers are drugs, their therapeutic effect is aimed at normalizing urination, as well as restoring erectile function in men. During the period of exacerbation of prostatitis, urinary dysfunction often appears. In such cases, the alpha blocker method is prescribed.
- Neostigmine bromide;
The pharmacological action of alpha-blockers is directed to the receptors of the sympathetic nervous system, which regulate the tone of the smooth muscles of the bladder. Drugs of this group suppress the activity of neurons that provoke uncontrolled pelvic muscle contraction. This helps relax the urethral muscles and normalize urination.
Alpha blockers are taken for a long time - up to 6-8 months. While using this drug, the outflow of urine is normalized, the painful sensation during urination disappears, the manifestations of inflammation are reduced and further development stops.
Use of rectal suppositories
Rectal suppositories are often part of the complex treatment of prostatitis and prevention of disease progression. This drug has many advantages over tablets and capsules - because of rectal administration, suppositories act directly on the focus of inflammation, providing a rapid effect.
Rectal suppositories reduce the negative effects of the composition of the drug on the kidneys, liver and organs of the digestive system. Suppositories contain effective, safe and natural ingredients - a collection of herbs, propolis, which are combined with antibacterial and anti -inflammatory substances.
Effective suppositories for prostatitis for men:
- Ordinary pumpkin seed oil;
- Interferon alpha-2b;
- Prostate Extract;
- Ichthyol candles;
Rectal suppositories based on pumpkin seeds are also used. Anti -inflammatory drug with analgesic effect - Diclofenac is considered effective.
Often, for the treatment of prostatitis, Bovgialuronidase -containing azovimer suppositories are used. They accelerate the renewal and recovery of prostate tissue at the cellular level. Rectal suppositories effectively stimulate blood circulation in the small pelvis, stop the inflammatory process, eliminate swelling and pain, and even normalize the outflow of urine.
Advantages of hormone medications
Hormone drugs for the treatment of prostatitis are used exclusively in the most severe and advanced cases. Glucocorticosteroids can only be prescribed by a urologist; self -treatment in this case is unacceptable.
The action of hormonal agents aims to eliminate the causes of the development of inflammatory processes and prevent their further development, restore the normal state of the prostate gland and restore full erectile function.
Glucocorticosteroids are most effective in exacerbating prostatitis. They quickly relieve pain cramps, normalize urine flow and reduce swelling. Flutamide and Cyproterone can be prescribed to older men to reduce androgen activity and prevent the proliferation of prostate tissue.
During treatment, keep in mind that glucocorticosteroids reduce the body's immune defenses, therefore, hormone medications are prohibited for men with HIV. Hormone medications are used if antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs are ineffective. In case of deterioration, Prednisolone is most often used.
Use of sedatives
Many men experience prostatitis with great difficulty, accompanied by erectile dysfunction, deterioration of sexual performance and decreased quality of intimate life. As a result, the disease has a negative impact on the functioning of the nervous system, causing stress, anxiety and depression, anxiety attacks and aggression.
In such cases, sedatives are prescribed to the patient:
- Valerian officinalis rhizome with root extract + Melissa medicinal herb extract + Peppermint leaf extract;
Often, sedatives of natural and herbal origin are used, which relieve the constant nervous stress against the background of sharp pain in the prostate area, urinary disorders and deterioration of overall quality of life.
With long -term treatment of chronic diseases, accompanied by severe mental disorders, stronger antidepressants are used - Paroxetine, Trazodone. Such pharmacological agents are used only in accordance with the instructions of a physician.
If prostatitis is accompanied by severe spasm in the prostate gland area, painkillers are prescribed. They not only stop cramps, but also stimulate blood circulation in the pelvic organs, normalize the outflow of urine, and reduce the tone of the smooth muscles of the perineum. In such cases, muscle relaxation can be used - Baclofen, Tolperisone hydrochloride.
- Prostate Extract;
- Sodium metamizole;
- Acetylsalicylic acid.
In many cases, painkillers are used in the form of rectal suppositories, such as Benzocaine, which contain natural belladonna extract.
When treating with anesthetic drugs, it should be remembered that they have an exclusively symptomatic effect - they stop painful cramps in the lower abdomen, but do not affect the cause of the disease. Therefore, analgesics are only used in complex treatment, concurrently with antibiotics or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Take immunomodulators and vitamins
Decreased immunity contributes to the rapid development of inflammatory processes, making the body vulnerable to various viruses, infections and pathogens. Therefore, in addition to the drug treatment of prostatitis, a course of immunomodulators and multivitamin complexes must be prescribed.
Common remedies to enhance general and local immunity:
- Echinacea purpurea herb juice;
- Thymus extract;
- Azoximer bromide;
- Meglumine Acridone Acetate;
- Sodium oxodihydroacridinyl acetate.
Taking immunomodulators and vitamin complexes in the early stages of the disease helps prevent the development of dangerous complications such as urethritis. An effective supplement for the treatment of inflammation of the prostate gland are a variety of supplements based on natural medicinal ingredients, as well as treatment with folk remedies.
The most useful are complexes, which include propolis and other beekeeping products, pumpkin seeds, peony dodge, beaver flow, stinging nettles, fire creepers, as well as burdock and sabal. Creeping fruit extract, Adenosine.
Effectiveness of prostatitis treatment
The effectiveness of drug treatment of prostatitis depends not only on properly selected pharmacological drugs, but also on the lifestyle of the man. A healthy and balanced diet, avoiding alcohol, having sex and exercising regularly will help speed recovery, be an effective way to prevent prostate disease, and help maintain men’s health.
