Pharmacological groups of drugs

The list of groups of medicines used to treat prostatitis looks like this:

  1. Antibiotics. Their action is aimed at removing microorganisms that have become pathogens of the disease. All are used only if bacterial infection is recognized as a cause of prostatitis. Three main groups of antibiotics are commonly used: penicillins, tetracyclines, and fluoroquinolones.
  2. Antiviralmedicines. They are used when the cause of prostatitis is a viral infection.
  3. Alpha blockers. They help to relax the smooth muscle tissue of the prostate and facilitate the outflow of urine in the patient. They can completely suppress the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, which causes uncontrolled contraction of the smooth muscles of the internal organs. There are drugs that act specifically on the sympathetic nervous system, only to stop its effect on the prostate.
  4. Not a steroidanti-inflammatory and antispasmodic drugs. Such therapy stops the symptoms of prostatitis and reduces the tone of the muscles of the organ and perineum.
  5. Hormonalmedicines. They are used to treat inflammation, reduce swelling in the organ, and normalize the process of passing urine.
  6. Phytotherapydosage forms. Made using natural plant ingredients. An excellent way to reduce inflammation, relieve prostate swelling, and reduce pain and discomfort.

Types of drugs

Today, you can buy the following types of drugs in pharmacies, which are differentiated by the way and place of exposure:

  1. Tablets and capsules. The difference between these forms lies in their structure - the former has a dense consistency, while the latter consists of a gelatinous shell and the drug inside. Both dosage forms should be taken orally (orally) orally, before, during or after a meal. In addition, some medicines need to be washed with liquid (water);
  2. Solution for injection (injections). With this type of therapy, the drug enters the body almost immediately. Intramuscular administration is most commonly used, although some solutions are administered intravenously;
  3. Candles- This is another effective way to treat prostatitis. The advantage of rectal suppositories is that they simultaneously have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. It is inserted directly into the rectum, at which time the patient should be in a supine position and remain in that position for at least half an hour after administration of the drug. During this time, the suppository has time to dissolve and be absorbed by the mucosa. The treatment process is usually 5-10 days;
  4. Instillations. It is used quite infrequently and only in the hospital. This was due to the mode of administration, which puts the drug almost at the center of inflammation and therefore the latter disappears rapidly. The medicine is injected through the urethra, the penis of a man, using a catheter. This is only possible under stationary conditions and by experienced medical personnel;
  5. Microclysters- This is another type of medicine used to treat prostatitis. These dosage forms are based on herbal decoctions and their main advantage is their anti-inflammatory effect. True, there is one thing, but not all doctors recognize this type of treatment as a full-fledged medicine. Microclysters are considered one of the tools of alternative medicine that is only suitable for the prevention of prostatitis in men.

Before making a diagnosis, the doctor prescribes diagnostic tests for the patient and performs an examination.

Depending on the symptoms of the disease observed, the stage of prostatitis, and how far it lasts, the type and treatment regimen are determined. For each form of prostatitis, the therapy and medications used will be different. It is important to consider the following factors:

  • a man has chronic or acute prostatitis;

  • individual intolerance to certain drugs or their ingredients.
