To stop the inflammatory process in the prostate gland, an integrated approach will be required, that is, several types of drugs will have to be used.
As a rule, patients are prescribed antibacterial tablets, alpha-1-blockers and bioregulatory peptides. Treatment is supplemented with phytopreparations, muscle relaxants, antispasmodics, NSAIDs / hormonal agents.
Types and symptoms of prostatitis
The urologist chooses the tactics of treating prostatitis. When choosing a tactic, a specialist pays attention to the root causes that provoked 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, hormonal-dystrophic, vegetovascular and asymptomatic prostatitis.

Antibiotics for prostatitis
How to treat prostatitis in men, what medications are better to use? Experts say that with inflammation of the prostate gland, it is imperative to use antibacterial medications.
Medicines suppress pathogenic microflora, and thereby help to stop inflammation in the glandular organ. Preference is given to broad-spectrum antibiotics. Before prescribing any remedy, a man should have a BAC prostate culture.
Preference is given to drugs that belong to the following groups:
Patients can use antibiotics in the form of injection solutions and tablets. The duration of antibiotic therapy is at least 3-5 weeks. If necessary, several therapeutic courses are performed.
After antibiotic therapy, the patient should re-pass the LHC culture of pancreatic secretion.
Bioregulatory peptides may be prescribed to the patient during drug therapy. Many products in this segment can be purchased in pharmacies. Medicines are dispensed without a prescription.
The active substance of bioregulatory peptides is bovine prostate extract.
Bioregulatory peptides are available in the form of tablets, suppositories and powder for preparation of an injection solution. The tools help:
- Improve the trophism of prostate tissue.
- Normalize 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 regenerative processes in the prostate.
- To increase the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy.
- Prevent thrombosis in the vessels of the pancreas.
- Increase local immunity.
- Normalize the tone of the bladder.
- Increase the amount of lecithin grains in prostatic secretions.
The duration of the use of bioregulatory peptides is limited to a month. If necessary, medications can be used to prevent prostatitis and BPH.
Modern herbal medicines are widely used in urology. These medicines can be used to treat prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Herbal remedies help relieve inflammation, improve urine flow, normalize libido and potency.
Natural medicines are not recommended for men who have a predisposition to allergic reactions.
It has already been noted above that prostatitis is accompanied by pain during urination, sluggish stream syndrome, frequent urge to urinate and other dysuric disorders.
To relieve these unpleasant symptoms, the patient is advised to take alpha-1-blockers. Medicines help to relax the smooth muscle structure of the bladder neck, prostate and urethra. Due to this, the evacuation of urine 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, drugs are prescribed in conjunction with 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors.
Alpha-1-blockers should not be taken by men who have hypotension, liver failure, renal failure.
What other funds are being assigned?
To eliminate pain in prostatitis, the patient is prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. With inflammation of the pancreas, NSAIDs can be used, produced in the form of suppositories, tablets and solutions for injection.
Another patient may be assigned:
- Hormonal medicines.They are used when NSAIDs do not help relieve pain.
- Antispasmodics.Medicines help relieve perineal muscle spasm and pain.
- Muscle relaxants.The instructions for such drugs say that they help relieve spasm of the smooth muscle structure of the perineum, urethra and prostate.
- Multivitamin complexes.They are prescribed to boost immunity.
For ancillary purposes, patients can use herbs to treat prostatitis and adenoma. Before using folk recipes, it is advisable to consult with your attending urologist.
In addition to the use of drugs, other recommendations should be followed. In particular, doctors advise to follow a diet, give up bad habits, and lead an active lifestyle.
