In order to interrupt the inflammatory process in the prostate, an integrated approach will be necessary, that is, several types of drugs should be used.
As a rule, patients receive antibacterial pills, alpha-1 blockers and bioregulatory peptides. The treatment is complemented with phytopreparations, muscle relaxants, antispasmodics, NSAIDs / hormonal agents.
Types and symptoms of prostatitis
The urologist chooses tactics to treat prostatitis. When choosing a tactic, the specialist is attentive to the root causes that caused the inflammatory processes in the glandular organ.
According to the international medical classification, there are several types of prostatitis. Allocate abacterial (stagnant), bacterial, infectious, fungal, allergic, hormone-dystrophic, vegetovascular and asymptomatic prostatitis.
Typical signs of pancreatic inflammation are:

Antibiotics for prostatitis
How to treat prostatitis in men, which medications are best to use? Experts say that with inflammation of the prostate, the use of antibacterial drugs is imperative.
The drugs suppress the pathogenic microflora and thus help to stop inflammation in the glandular organ. Preference is given to broad-spectrum antibiotics. Before prescribing any medicine, a man should have a prostate culture with BAC.
Preference is given to medicines that belong to the following groups:
Patients can use antibiotics in the form of injectable solutions and tablets. The duration of antibiotic therapy is at least 3-5 weeks. If necessary, several therapeutic courses are held.
After antibiotic therapy, the patient must pass on the culture of pancreatic secretion from the LHC.
Bioregulatory peptides can be prescribed to the patient during drug therapy. Many products in this segment can be purchased at pharmacies. Medicines are dispensed without a prescription.
The active substance in bioregulatory peptides is bovine prostate extract.
Bioregulating peptides are available in the form of tablets, suppositories and powder for preparing a solution for injection. The tools help:
- Improves the trophism of prostate tissue.
- Normalizes blood circulation in the small pelvis.
- Increase potency and libido.
- Eliminate urinary problems.
- Increase libido.
- Stop swelling of the glandular organ.
- To speed up the prostate's regenerative processes.
- To increase the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy.
- Prevent thrombosis in the vessels of the pancreas.
- Increases local immunity.
- Normalizes the tone of the bladder.
- Increase the amount of lecithin grains in prostate secretion.
The duration of the use of bioregulatory peptides is limited to one month. If necessary, medications can be used to prevent prostatitis and BPH.
Modern herbal medicines are widely used in urology. These drugs can be used to treat prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Herbal remedies help to relieve inflammation, improve urinary flow, normalize libido and potency.
Natural medicines are not recommended for men who are prone to allergic reactions.
Alpha blockers 1
It has already been noted above that prostatitis is accompanied by pain when urinating, slow flow syndrome, frequent urge to urinate and other dysuric disorders.
To relieve these unpleasant symptoms, the patient is advised to take alpha-1 blockers. The medications help to relax the smooth muscle structure of the bladder neck, prostate and urethra. Because of this, urine evacuation is improved and the likelihood of urinary retention is reduced.
Alpha-1 blockers can be taken not only for prostatitis, but also for benign prostatic hyperplasia. For adenoma, the drugs are prescribed in conjunction with 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors.
Alpha-1 blockers should not be taken by men with hypotension, liver failure or kidney failure.
What other funds are being allocated?
To eliminate pain in prostatitis, the patient receives non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. With inflammation of the pancreas, NSAIDs can be used, produced in the form of suppositories, tablets and injectable solutions.
Another patient can be assigned:
- Hormonal medications.They are used when NSAIDs do not help to relieve pain.
- Antispasmodics.The medications help to relieve spasm and pain in the perineal muscle.
- Muscle relaxants.The instructions for these drugs say that they help to relieve the spasm of the smooth muscle structure of the perineum, urethra and prostate.
- Multivitamin complexes.They are prescribed to increase immunity.
For auxiliary purposes, patients can use herbs to treat prostatitis and adenoma. Before using popular recipes, it is advisable to consult your responsible urologist.
In addition to the use of medications, other recommendations should be followed. In particular, doctors advise following a diet, abandoning bad habits and leading an active lifestyle.
