Urinary tract infections can be uncomfortable and if left untreated, they can become severe. Trimethoprim is the treatment of choice for prevention and cure of these infections. It is a type of synthetic antibiotic and it has been included on the World Health Organisation’s list of essential medicines.

Trimethoprim works by killing the bacteria causing the infection. Some sexually transmitted diseases can also cause cystitis; if you have and other symptoms such as itching, pelvic pain or sores around the genitals, you should consult your doctor.

Trimethoprim is referred to as a bacteriostatic antibiotic and works by inhibiting the DNA synthesis of bacteria through reducing levels of tetrahydrofolic acid. This process ultimately prevents the multiplication and spread of bacteria, eventually killing them off. The treatment usually eradicates the infection after a couple of days.

You can benefit in the following ways by initiating a course of Trimethoprim to treat cystitis:
  • Take advantage of its potency in targeting cystitis
  • No more pain when passing urine and no more pain during sexual intercourse!
  • Rest assured that treatment will be speedy, provided the correct dose is consumed for the prescribed duration
Trimethoprim tablets are to be swallowed whole with a glass of water. The course must be completed to ensure that the infection does not return or become resistant to the antibiotics. Trimethoprim can be taken on an empty stomach or with a meal.

For the best results, you should aim to take the tablets at the same time each day. If you experience worsening symptoms after beginning treatment, such as acute pain or fever, you should go to your GP as your condition may need subsequent treatment.

Trimethoprim usually cures most cases of cystitis, however, if you experience symptoms after the course of antibiotics has been completed, we recommend that you visit your GP.

This treatment is only available for use in women. Cystitis in men indicates that there may be a more serious issue that needs further medical attention.

One Trimethoprim 200mg tablet should be taken twice a day, twelve hours apart for three days. You must complete the course to ensure the infection does not return or become resistant to the antibiotics. You can also get more information on this topic by contacting the SmartMeds Clinic team or by speaking to your own GP.

Trimethoprim 200mg tablets
Trimethoprim is the most common treatment and is very effective. However, you can reduce your symptoms and help the process by doing drinking plenty of water, refraining from sexual intercourse until you are better and taking over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen to aid pain relief.

You can purchase potassium or sodium citrate-based remedies to treat the symptoms developed from cystitis. These come in the forms of power diluted in water and make your urine less acidic, which reduces discomfort. Visit our SmartHealth Store, where you can find alternative therapies for cystitis and much more!

Try to cut down your intake of alcohol, caffeine or citric drinks, as these will irritate your bladder. You can experience additional comfort by using a hot water bottle on your lower back. Finally, ensure you get plenty of rest, allowing your immune system to recuperate.
