Bacterial Cystitis Treatments

If you have been diagnosed with or think you may have bacterial cystitis, you can use the drop down menus below to find out about the different types of treatments that may be offered to you, as well as ways of helpling yourself. This information can be used in conjunction with support from your GP or health professional to help you find the right course of treatment best suited to your individual needs; enabling you to manage your condition and improve your quality of life.

Please use this information carefully and always speak to your GP or health professional, they can explain what is causing your problem and how the different treatments may help you. They will also talk to you about any side effects, these are extra problems that can be caused by the treatment. Together, you can decide which treatment is the most suitable.

An attack of cystitis can be treated by pain relief such as paracetamol and ibuprofen; this may help if you have a temperature.

If your attack lasts more than a few days and you still have a temperature, you should visit your GP again. Potassium and sodium citrate can be found in some medications which may relieve the symptoms of cystitis.

Your doctor may also prescribe some antibiotics to ease the symptoms and get rid of the infection.
