Drug and alternative treatment of prostatitis.

The inflammatory process in the prostate gland brings considerable discomfort to men's lives, and often leads to the development of more complex diseases, such as impotence, infertility, adenoma or prostate cancer. Prostatitis is most often diagnosed in men in adulthood, but it is often diagnosed in young men under the age of 40. The treatment of this disease includes a set of measures represented by drug therapy, physiotherapy, folk remedies and massage methods. But, despite this diversity, it still relies on oral medications.

drugs for the treatment of prostatitis

For the treatment of prostatitis, folk remedies and drugs are used.

why pills

Pills are the most popular drugs for prostatitis, and it is recommended that men drink immediately after confirming the diagnosis. This dosage form has a number of advantages over other drugs, however, with all this, it also has significant drawbacks.

The main reasons for prescribing pills:

  1. The need to eliminate the infection, which is often localized not only in the prostate gland, but also in other organs of the urinary and reproductive systems, the intestines, and the lymph nodes in the groin. In most cases, it can only be eradicated by taking funds that act systemically.
  2. Often the cause of prostatitis is impaired functions of the circulatory system. At the same time, normalization of work is possible only in the case of normalization of blood flow throughout the body, and not only in the prostate and small pelvis. This can only be achieved by taking drugs inside.
  3. Strengthening the immune system is an important component of the treatment of prostatitis. This can be done in two ways: by revising the diet or by taking immunomodulators and immunoglobulins. Tablets in this case are the most convenient and simple option for men. Treatment of prostatitis will not work without medication, unless it is at the initial stage.
  4. The normalization of metabolic processes in the prostate depends on the state of metabolism throughout the body. Most of the "responsibility" for these processes lies with vitamins, minerals and trace elements, which are more completely absorbed through the digestive tract. That is why vitamin-mineral complexes, as well as drugs to restore metabolism, are prescribed for prostatitis, mainly in the form of tablets or oral solutions.

Of course, this is not a complete list of the reasons why it is more convenient and beneficial for men to take pills. These include the absence of skin pricks, which inevitably remain after injections, the absence of psychological discomfort (men can also be afraid of injections), and much more.

What pills to drink - classification of drugs for prostatitis

With prostatitis in men, drug treatment is carried out with drugs of various groups. The list of mandatory drugs that doctors advise all patients to drink without exception includes:

  • antibiotics;
  • antispasmodics;
  • muscle relaxants;
  • anti-inflammatory drugs;
  • hormones;
  • immunomodulators and vitamins;
  • complex preparations for prostatitis.

It is necessary to drink all the tablets from the above list according to the instructions for use and according to the recommendations given by the doctor. It is important to remember that some drugs are better to "drink little" than to take them for a long time or in large doses. Hormonal drugs are considered especially dangerous in this regard!

Long-term use of men's drugs with a positive effect on prostatitis is indicated only for complex tablets or capsules, the composition of which is based mainly on herbal ingredients. It is recommended to drink them for at least 3 months in a row, and during treatment it is better to observe the exact dosage, because organic, like synthetic drugs, affect various processes in the body.

Herbal preparations need to be drunk for several months to get the desired effect.

Treatment without drugs: healing teas for prostatitis.

One of the ways to get rid of the manifestations of prostatitis, which has recently become popular among men, is herbal teas based on medicinal plants. The therapeutic effect of many of them has been scientifically proven, and the herbs that are part of decoctions and water infusions are included in complex preparations.

Herbs, like the synthetic compounds used for prostatitis in men, have the following effects:

  1. Uroseptic - cleanses the prostate tissues from bacteria, viruses and toxins synthesized by them. Such properties are possessed by tansy, centaur, bearberry.
  2. Anti-inflammatory - suppresses inflammation in the focus, that is, in the prostate gland. This property has calendula, yarrow, bearberry, hypericum and sage.
  3. Improves blood circulation and eliminates stagnation in the prostate. Chestnut and sweet clover help normalize the state of the circulatory system and restore the functions of blood vessels.
  4. Ginger, ginseng, mint and lemon have an immunomodulatory and restorative effect on the body of men.

In a word, herbal teas and decoctions can be drunk instead of tablets, but this is still not recommended. The best option is to supplement them with pills and other prostatitis remedies prescribed by a doctor. But even this should be done only after the specialist approves the use of a particular plant.

Important to remember! Decoctions and teas from medicinal plants have a fairly extensive list of contraindications, and when taken orally, they can affect the functions of all internal organs. In this regard, when treating them with prostatitis in men, the dosage must be strictly observed.

To achieve the maximum effect, urologists recommend using folk remedies for no more than two weeks. After a break of a week, the remedy can be changed to another. Parallel intake of several decoctions or infusions can have negative consequences. Taking folk remedies during remission is especially useful in reducing the likelihood of an exacerbation of the disease, and in the event of its occurrence, resorting to the help of medicines from the first aid kit.
