Trimethoprim 200mg Tablets + Cymalon Sachets (Cystitis Treatment Pack)
Trimethoprim is an antibiotic that helps to kill the bacteria causing cystitis. It is the first line treatment for simple cystitis caused by the most common bacterial infections. Trimthoprim will clear up simple cases of cystitis caused by the most common bacteria.
Cymalon sachets offer effective relief from the symptoms of cystitis. They contain sodium citrate which helps to neutralise urine acidity during an attack of cystitis, providing welcome relief from the burning pain and irritation. They can be taken with antibiotics for immediate relief of symptoms whilst you are fighting the infection.
- Drink cranberry juice. Cranberry juice has been shown to stop bacteria sticking to the urinary tract and therefore can help with prevention and treatment of cystitis. You can alternatively take cranberry supplements.
- Cut down on cigarettes, alcohol and caffeine. These can also contribute to cystitis as well as strong and perfumed soaps and bubble baths.
Trimethoprim is an antibiotic used primarily for the treatment of uncomplicated cystitis. It is normally effective in up to 9 out of 10 simple cystitis cases and will help to cure the infection in a couple of days. Cymalon sachets are used to neutralise the urine and help to provide temporary relief of the burning and stinging on urination whilst the condition clears.
