The most common drugs for treating prostatitis
Treating prostatitis with drugs is a rather complicated procedure, requiring the doctor to choose the right medicine that not only helps to relieve pain, eliminate symptoms and other manifestations, but also help eliminatethe root cause of the disease. The disease itself can also have different origins, manifest in an acute or chronic form, bring many inconveniences to the patient, be limited both in nature and lead to complete infertility.

Macrolides are rarely used in the treatment of prostatitis, as they are aimed against certain types of bacteria, such as mycoplasma and chlamydia. By the way, a disease like chlamydia is often accompanied by prostatitis, so doctors will prescribe several tests at once to identify problems with the prostate gland in the early stages.
In the case of an acute manifestation of prostatitis, the attending physician may prescribe several different drugs at the same time. This approach allows you to effectively cope with both the symptom and the disease itself.
The vast majority of pain relievers are prescribed for acute pain syndrome, an indispensable companion of chronic, but often more severe forms of prostatitis. The use of drugs of this group outside of the framework of drug therapy with the aim of eliminating the disease is completely discouraged, since the body quickly gets used to them, and in order to achieve the analgesic effect, Increased dosage, may adversely affect the liver and kidneys.

In addition, these funds are actively used for preventive purposes, helping to avoid the occurrence of the disease or its recurrence.
Vitamins and supplements
