Cystitis

Cystitis is a urinary tract infection which is an infection of the bladder usually caused by bacteria from the gastrointestinal tract. It usually affects women, and is commonly more of a nuisance than a cause for serious concern. The Family Clinician can help you with a simple short course of antibiotics without the need of a face-to-face doctor consultation.

Combination treatment to kick the infection out.
A course of Nitrofurantoin (Macrobid) or Trimethoprim which are antibiotics can be used to clear the bacteria in a matter of days. You can also use painkillers and a lot of water to relieve symptoms such as abdominal pain or pain when urinating. Fill in our online consultation and we can offer you the most suitable antibiotic to help treat your infection.
Nitrofurantoin works in a different way from other antibiotics. When you take it by mouth, most of it gets filtered out of your blood and into your pee. This concentrates the medicine right among the bacteria causing the urinary tract infection. Nitrofurantoin kills the bacteria by entering their cells and damaging their genetic material.

Trimethoprim kills bacteria by stopping them making a substance called folic acid, which they need to survive.
It is important the entire course is completed so all the bacteria are eradicated.
Make sure you read the patient information leaflet carefully as there may be hints and tips on how to use your medication correctly or feel free to call us for some advice. However, there can be occassions where the treatments don’t work or suit you. In this case we recommend you contact your GP at your earliest opportunity for further advice.
