The most effective drugs for treatment of prostatitis

Running treatment of prostatitis – chronic and acute – is a complex event that requires the parallel use of a number of diverse drugs. Each case is individually generates the necessary list of drugs that depend on the history of the patient and of the disease and a number of other important factors.

the choice of medication

Types of drugs

Selection of cheap yet effective drugs from prostatitis is based on the understanding of the causes of the disease and its manifestations, however, the key aspects of any medication list should be considered antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. And, if the latter can be General in nature, the antibiotic therapy should be scheduled taking into account the counteraction of a particular type of causative agent, identified in the analyses.

Additionally, therapies may be used such medicines against prostate, as various antipyretics, analgesics, diuretics, alpha-blockers, antispasmodics, antiandrogens and laxatives.

To classify drugs, not only for the purpose, but in form of issue:

  • injection (injection): treatment of inflammation of the prostate gland with the help of injections is justified, first, in the case of severe condition of the patient, which requires immediate stabilization. Generally, concentrated the drug in the vials was diluted to obtain a solution and then administered to the intramuscular or the intravenous infusion of r;
  • suppository: medication in suppository form is relevant when carrying out planned therapy of chronic prostatitis or as drugs for the prevention of prostatitis. In some cases, suppositories are prescribed to increase potency, since the absorption of substances by the mucous membrane of the intestine provides the best penetration into the prostate tissue;
  • tablets and capsules: these drug forms are the most common standard regimen for treating chronic or acute prostatitis. Tablets are easy to dose and convenient to take, because most of the antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and anti-edema (alpha-blockers or inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase) issued in this form;
  • instillation: this is not so often used in prostatitis treatment method, the essence of which consists in injecting a medicinal solution into the urethra or bladder using a special syringe. The main purpose of the instillation – recovery of the damaged mucous membrane, destruction of pathogenic microorganisms and the suppression of inflammatory processes;
  • microclysters: small cold enema reduce local swelling, inflammation and pain in the prostate gland, while simultaneously impair drug transport in tissue. In the final stages of therapy, and after recovery can be carried out courses mikroklizm with solutions based on vegetable preparations. At sufficiently long retention of fluid in the intestinal mucosa absorbs its nutrients;
  • patches: skin patches, as mikroklizm, refer to ancillary measures in the treatment of prostate has on the body, faster, which supports the effect, complementing full medical therapy.
the study drug

When choosing a dosage form of the drug should also be taken into account, except for the state of the patient's own preferences. Some patients have problems with swallowing pills, while others rectal suppositories are contraindicated due to the presence of inflammatory diseases of the anorectal region. A significant role is also played by such factors as the availability and cost of drugs – do not always have the opportunity to pick up the speed and inexpensive cure for prostatitis, which has to take less efficient counterparts.


Selection of antibiotics requires a selective approach, as it is important to choose a medicine, overwhelming a specific type (or types) of pathogens inflammatory prostatitis. Why doctors studied smears taken from the urethra, urine samples and prostatic secretions.

It is very desirable to use antibacterial antibiotics, which possess both bacteriostatic and bactericidal effect, to the drug not only block the spread of infection, but to actively destroy harmful microorganisms.

Beta-lactam antibiotics, like aminoglycosides, preference is given to a lesser extent, although they are cheap. Unlike the fluoroquinolones and macrolides, characterized by their weak ability to penetrate the prostate gland tissue and create the desired concentration of the active substance. Fluoroquinolones are powerful bactericidal drugs, is markedly superior in this parameter, stopping the reproduction of microorganisms, drugs


This group of drugs is widely used not only for prostate, but also in case of BPH, and their effectiveness is based on the blocking of alpha-adrenergic receptors to prevent their contact with the noradrenaline and agonists. As a result, the receptors in the blood vessels do not receive vasoconstrictor nerve signals, thereby achieving their expansion, with a consequent improvement of blood circulation..

It should be noted that in urology are actively using selective alpha1-blockers, which act on the receptors in tissues of the bladder, prostate and urinary tract.

Reducing swelling of the tissues not only improves the excretion of toxins and fluid wastes of the body, but also tones the entire urinary system men, helping to get rid of, among other things, impotence, and reducing the erection.

Anti-inflammatory drugs

preet drugs

Prostatitis in men treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs/NSAID) that meet the requirements of efficiency, but at the same time safe for the body. The purpose of these drugs is suppression of the inflammatory process, which affected the simplicity and, perhaps, seminal vesicles, bladder neck and distal urinary tract.

After the decline of clinical manifestations of inflammation of the prostate showed normalization of the patient's condition that includes a decrease in body temperature, decrease swelling of the prostate gland, removing the obstruction of the urinary tract and suppression of pain in the genital area.


The use of hormonal drugs in the treatment of prostatitis should be allowed only if running a chronic course of the disease, which antibiotics, alpha-blockers and anti-inflammatory drugs are not able to normalize a disturbed hormonal balance.

Depending on the purpose, the patient can be assigned as androgens, which increase the level of male hormones (testosterone) in the blood and estrogens, which suppress the production of dihydrotestosterone, which causes tissue growth of the prostate.

All these drugs are dispensed strictly on prescription, and should be used only as directed by a doctor, as incorrect or improper dosage can be detrimental to the health of the patient.


Complicated course of acute prostatitis worsens with the development of immunosuppression, which may increase under the influence of a number of antibiotics and other drugs. For this reason, there is a need to strengthen the resistance (resistance) of the organism against the pathogenic microflora, which is carried out by using Immunostimulants.

Don't forget that the immune system also contribute vitamins a, C and E, so experts recommend to actively eat foods that contain these substances in large quantities.


Painkillers are usually needed in the early stages of therapy, when treatment has not yet managed functionally to improve the condition of the prostate, which patient feels pain during urination, bowel movements, prolonged sitting on a hard surface or physical activity.

As a rule, enough analgesics of medium strength, which are taken in accordance with the requirements of from one to three times a day. In these funds there are many structural analogues (generic drugs), and they are manufactured by many Russian and foreign companies, but doctors advised to give preference to domestic analgesics not to overpay for the brand.

Muscle relaxants

From the class of muscle relaxants in urology decided to appoint antispasmodics – medications that help relax smooth muscles, which is in a state of spasm. This therapy is effective for acute prostatitis, is an involuntary spasm of the muscles of the prostate and the entire pelvic floor.

herbal preparations

Course application of antispasmodics is superfluous: it is enough to take them in moderate doses during the first days or weeks of total therapy. Also, it is impossible to abuse these drugs to avoid the risk of dysfunction of the respective organs and systems of the body.


Herbal medicine prescribed for prostatitis, are most often Badami that are issued in the form of rectal suppositories, capsules or tablets. Popular extracts that form the basis of such preparations the bark of the African plum, the fruit of the creeping (or dwarf) trees. Is used less often, the extract of prostate gland of animals (cattle). There is also a group of medicines like homeopathic medicines for the treatment of inflammation of the prostate.

For prevention of prostatitis

Prevention of prostatitis requires, first and foremost, maintain a healthy lifestyle, including regular sexual activity. But for the maintenance of tone can be applied to a variety of drugs – as a rule, we are talking about dietary supplements of plant origin. As the manufacturers of these dietary Supplements stated their ability to help with the weakening of libido, impotence, erectile dysfunction and other disorders in the work of the male urogenital system, be careful to take them as preventive remedies for prostatitis.
