To stop the inflammatory process in the prostate gland, an integrated approach will be required, that is, various types of drugs will have to be used.
As a general rule, patients are prescribed antibacterial tablets, alpha-1 blockers, and bioregulatory peptides. The treatment is complemented with phytopreparations, muscle relaxants, antispasmodics, NSAIDs / hormonal agents.
Types and symptoms of prostatitis
The urologist chooses the tactics to treat 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. Assign abacterial (stagnant), bacterial, infectious, fungal, allergic, hormonal-dystrophic, vegetovascular and asymptomatic prostatitis.

Antibiotics for prostatitis
How to treat prostatitis in men, what drugs is better to use? Experts say that with inflammation of the prostate gland, it is imperative to use antibacterial drugs.
Medications suppress pathogenic microflora and thus help stop inflammation in the glandular organ. Broad spectrum antibiotics are preferred. Before prescribing any remedy, a man must have a BAC prostate culture.
Preference is given to drugs that belong to the following groups:
Patients can use antibiotics in the form of injectable solutions and tablets. The duration of antibiotic therapy is at least 3-5 weeks. If necessary, several therapeutic courses are held.
After antibiotic therapy, the patient should undergo the LHC culture of pancreatic secretion again.
Bioregulatory peptides may be prescribed to the patient during drug therapy. Many products in this segment can be purchased in pharmacies. Medications are dispensed without a prescription.
The active principle of bioregulatory peptides is bovine prostate extract.
Bioregulatory peptides are available in the form of tablets, suppositories and powder for the preparation of an injection solution. The tools help:
- Improves trophism of prostate tissue.
- Normalizes blood circulation in the small pelvis.
- Increases potency and libido.
- Eliminate urinary problems.
- Increase libido.
- Stop inflammation of the glandular organ.
- To accelerate the regeneration processes of the prostate.
- To increase the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy.
- Prevents thrombosis in the vessels of the pancreas.
- Increases local immunity.
- Normalizes bladder tone.
- Increases the amount of lecithin grains in the prostate secretion.
The duration of the use of bioregulatory peptides is limited to one month. If necessary, medications can be used to prevent prostatitis and BPH.
Modern herbal medicines are widely used in urology. These medications can be used to treat prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Herbal remedies help relieve inflammation, improve urine flow, normalize libido and potency.
Natural medications are not recommended for men who are predisposed to allergic reactions.
Alpha 1 Blockers
It has been noted above that prostatitis is accompanied by painful urination, slow flow syndrome, frequent urination, and other dysuric disorders.
To alleviate these unpleasant symptoms, the patient is advised to take alpha-1 blockers. Medications help relax the smooth muscle structure of the bladder neck, prostate, and urethra. Due to this, the evacuation of urine is improved and the probability 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 along with 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors.
Men with hypotension, liver or kidney failure should not take alpha-1 blockers.
What other funds are being allocated?
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 injectable solutions.
Another patient can be assigned:
- Hormonal drugs.They are used when NSAIDs do not help relieve pain.
- Antispasmodics.Medicines help relieve pain and spasm of the perineal muscles.
- Muscle relaxants.The directions for these medications say they help relieve spasm of the smooth muscle structure of the perineum, urethra, and prostate.
- Multivitamin complexes.They are prescribed to increase immunity.
For complementary purposes, patients can use herbs to treat prostatitis and adenoma. Before using folk recipes, it is advisable to consult with the attending urologist.
In addition to the use of medications, other recommendations should be followed. In particular, doctors recommend following a diet, giving up bad habits and leading an active lifestyle.
