Cystitis Treatment for Repeat Cases

Following a recent review by our clinical team, our doctors do not consider it appropriate to supply this treatment via an online consultation only. If you are seeking this or similar medication, we advise you to make an appointment with your regular doctor who can properly assess your suitability for treatment.

Cystitis is a bladder infection caused when bacteria which enter the urethra travel up into the urinary tract. Cystitis can be very uncomfortable for suffers, but if treated is not serious. Left untreated however, infection can spread to the kidneys.

PharmacyDoctor can provide you with a private prescription for Cystitis medication following an online consultation with our UK registered doctor.


Bacteria can enter the bladder during sex, by wearing tight clothing or by wiping back to front when you go to the toilet. Women tend to be more susceptible to infection than men, and this is because their urethra is shorter and closer to the anus. Women who are sexually active, pregnant or going through the menopause are most likely to have cystitis. Other causes include problems emptying your bladder, diabetes, blockages to the urinary tract, inserting a urinary catheter, bowel incontinence.


The most commonly reported symptoms of cystitis are:

  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Pain when urinating
  • Need to urinate at night
  • Traces of blood in your urine
  • Changes to the appearance and/or smell of your urine
  • Pain in the lower back or abdomen
  • General feeling of malaise or fever

If you have a fever, seek medical attention immediately, as this could be a sign the infection has spread to the kidneys.


Cystitis is normally treated with a course of oral antibiotics in order to prevent it spreading any further up the urinary tract.

For mild to moderate infections in women your doctor should prescribe trimethoprim for 3-5 days. In order to for the medication to take full effect make sure you complete your course of treatments, and take all of the tablets as prescribed.

If you are a man, or are pregnant and are experiencing the symptoms of cystitis it is recommended you visit your GP.

Many women experience repeat bouts of cystitis and may find it helpful to keep a short course of antibiotics handy.
