Relapse and complications after treatment
The return of cystitis after the course of antibiotics taken becomes a reason for a comprehensive examination of the patient. This is due to the similarity of the symptoms of the disease with other ailments. Treatment with similar medicines for complications or recurring disease is not recommended. In this case, you should choose the best antibiotic and extend the time of its use. Doctors recommend a strong drug Uro-Vaks, which helps with both primary and re-infection. In order to prevent relapse, the use of cranberries in the composition of Monurel tablets is effective. To prevent re-infection, it is better to undergo a thorough examination for primary illness and strictly follow the recommendations of the doctor. With frequent infections, the solution is the vaccine. It forms immunity on the bladder mucosa. It is necessary to treat cystitis in this way for at least 2–3 months.

The need for complex treatment
There are two stages, which manifest the ailment: acute and chronic. In each case, an important approach is an integrated approach to treatment. In case of acute cystitis, therapy consists of:
- antibacterial drugs;
- abundant fluid intake;
- cessation of sexual life until complete recovery;
- diet food.
If the inflammation has passed into the chronic stage, the treatment contains:
- antibacterial drugs;
- anti-inflammatory drugs;
- pain medication;
- careful monitoring of the level of hormones in the blood;
- use of vitamins, which improve immunity.

Antibiotic treatment in children
The diagnosis of cystitis for children is a common phenomenon. The complexity of its diagnosis lies in the inability of the child to accurately describe the symptoms. Similarly to adults, it is first necessary to attribute antibiotics for cystitis in children. The difficulty lies in the limited choice of approved drugs. Augmentin is suitable for the treatment of the bladder. It refers to a broad-spectrum medium. Augmentin take children from birth. The antibiotic for cystitis Sumamed is produced in the form of a powder and the dosage is calculated depending on the weight of the child. Antimicrobial Ampicillin is one of the most affordable antibiotics for treating cystitis. Antimicrobial medicine Vilprafen is used to treat bladder inflammation in newborns. How much to drink it is decided by the pediatrician on the basis of the general state of health. In case of severe cystitis, a drip may be necessary.

Features of antibiotic therapy during pregnancy
When diagnosing inflammation in pregnant women, it is necessary to conduct a thorough examination and act on the symptoms and cause of the disease. In this case, without antibacterial agents can not do. Safe for a pregnant woman and fetus will be Monural and Amoxiclav. If necessary, catheterization in the bladder injected solutions with antimicrobial properties. Effective with the disease are herbal remedies.
Antibiotics for cystitis in women list of major groups
Antibiotic for cystitis in women is not used in every case of the disease, but still quite often.
Of course, they bring some harm to health, especially if they are used haphazardly, uncontrollably and without taking into account indications and contraindications.
But there are situations, including in case of cystitis, when refusal from antibiotic therapy is dangerous not only for health, but also for life. Decision on taking antibiotics should be considered.
It is necessary to take into account all the pros and cons, so that the treatment with these drugs will bring benefit, not harm.
Cystitis in women, by their nature, can be infectious and non-infectious. Non-infectious cystitis is when inflammation in the mucous membrane of the bladder is not caused by microorganisms.
There is an extensive list of chemical and physical factors that can cause cystitis. These are toxins, medicinal substances, allergens and other agents.
In this case, if the course of non-infectious cystitis is uncomplicated, antibiotic prescription is not required. However, even this form of the disease may require antibiotic therapy.
This happens when the underlying process is complicated by the addition of an infection.
For example, in case of radiation cystitis, due to a violation of cell division, the mucous membrane stops recovering and updating. As a result, erosions are formed on the inner surface of the bladder, which can serve as gates for infection.
Bacteria, hitting the bladder, penetrate the wall, due to the weakening of the protective forces, and cause a complication of radiation cystitis – suppuration. And then to cure the disease, antibiotics become necessary.
Infection process in the bladder is almost always an indication for prescribing antimicrobial agents.
The exceptions are cases when the nature of cystitis is clear (for example, it periodically occurs in a woman after sexual intercourse), it has just begun, it does not bother much.
Then it is allowed for 1-2 days to be treated with herbs and folk remedies, but with a mandatory assessment of the effectiveness of the measures taken. If there is no effect, then the woman should start taking antibiotics.
Appointment of antibiotics is necessary even when it is obvious that the process is purulent or there are symptoms of hemorrhagic cystitis (with discharge of blood).
Also, antibacterial drugs prescribed, if the disease began abruptly, and the severity increased quickly.
Another of the situations when antibiotics are needed is if a woman has a chronic disease that weakens the immune system and promotes the development of infection (for example, diabetes, HIV, there are other diseases on this list).
Indications for the appointment of antibiotics
Above were listed general situations when antibiotics may be required in principle.
Sometimes it is difficult to correctly navigate the large number of manifestations of various forms of the disease.
In order not to be mistaken and in time to determine the moment when it is time to start taking antibiotics for cystitis, you can rely on a list of those symptoms that indicate the bacterial nature of the disease.
Indications for prescribing antibiotics are presented in the following list:
- fever – this symptom means that the inflammatory process is not limited to the bladder – toxins have entered the bloodstream and caused a general reaction of the body;
- admixture of blood or pus in the urine – these symptoms indicate the intensity of inflammation and the severity of cystitis in women and men;
- changes in blood and urine tests, reflecting bacterial inflammation (leukocytosis with an increase in the number of neutrophils in the blood, detection of red blood cells, leukocytes, or bacteria in the urine);
- severe pain when urinating (sometimes they are so strong that women are afraid to go to the toilet);
- severe concomitant pathology;
- if there is pain of a permanent nature, not related to urination;
- with frequent or early relapses of the disease (when a new episode of the disease occurs a few days after improvement);
- with the ineffectiveness of treatment with folk remedies and herbs for 1-2 days or with a deterioration of health against the background of such treatment.
Spasms of cystitis
Unfortunately, antibiotics for cystitis in women do not always help. There may be several reasons for this: the bacteria are resistant to the drug, the antibiotic is taken incorrectly or the cause of the disease is not a bacterial infection.
The cause of cystitis in women can be viruses, protozoa and fungi. In order to get rid of them, you may need drugs from other classes.
When prescribing antibiotics it is necessary to adhere to several principles. This will help with a greater degree of probability to hit the target and cope with the infection as quickly as possible.
These principles (presented in the list below) are valid when prescribing an antibacterial drug from any group:
- when choosing an antibiotic for cystitis, it is important to take into account the result of urine culture with the release of the pathogen and determine its sensitivity;
- bacteriological examination for the selection of an antibiotic should be done in all cases of chronic or often recurrent cystitis, as well as with treatment failure;
- if a bacteriological examination of urine has not been carried out, preference should be given to an antibiotic that is susceptible to the most common causative agents of this disease (Escherichia coli, staphylococcus), or to a drug with a broad spectrum of activity;
- Since antibiotics can be excreted from the body in different ways (through the intestines, with bile, through the kidneys), it is better to use drugs that are excreted in the urine to treat cystitis in women – this will ensure a sufficient concentration of the active substance in the bladder cavity;
- antibiotics for cystitis, as well as for other diseases, should be taken at regular intervals (for example, if it is recommended to take it three times a day, the interval should be 8 hours);
- It is important to observe the recommended duration of the course so that it does not happen that some bacteria survive and become resistant – this leads to the transition of the disease to the chronic form and to the ineffectiveness of repeated use of this drug;
- with antibiotic therapy, it is important to adjust the composition of the normal microflora of the body so that dysbacteriosis does not develop (eat dairy products, drink probiotics).
The list can be continued with other recommendations – antibiotic treatment should be accompanied by the intake of large amounts of liquid so that toxins formed during the death of bacterial cells are eliminated.
If necessary, can be used and drugs of other groups – painkillers, antispasmodics. Antibiotics are usually combined with medicinal herbs and traditional methods of treatment.
But in any case, the reception of any other means of cystitis in parallel with antibiotic therapy should be coordinated with the doctor.
It is very important to take into account possible contraindications to a particular drug, especially pregnant and lactating women. Some of the antibiotics prescribed for cystitis in women may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus.
It should also be remembered that the liver and kidney disease, accompanied by their insufficiency of function, may require a dose adjustment of the drug.
The main groups of antibacterial agents
The entire list of antibiotics can be divided into several groups by chemical composition, spectrum of antimicrobial activity, as well as by some other criteria.
Drugs from some groups are often prescribed for cystitis, from others less often (for example, if the results of bacteriological examination of the urine prove the sensitivity of the pathogen to them).
Even within the same group of drugs there are drugs that have more or less activity. As a rule, earlier antibiotics are less effective.
This is due not to the fact that they are worse, but to the fact that over time, more and more strains of bacteria acquire resistance to a particular drug.
The main reason for this is uncontrolled medication, when the drug was chosen without sensitivity, the course was not completed, or there were gaps in taking the pills.
Below are the main antibiotics for cystitis in women, the list is, of course, not complete, but these drugs are used most often.
1. Fluoroquinolones are the most commonly prescribed antibiotics. Their list includes: Ciprofloxacin, Norfloxacin, Pipemidovaya acid, Levofloxacin and others. They are available under different trade names.
These antibiotics have a wide spectrum of activity, require not very frequent use (1-2 times a day), resistance to them is slowly developing.
2. Nitrofuran derivatives – the next group in the list, used quite often. When cystitis apply Furadonin and Furagin. There are other antibiotics in this group, but with cystitis they are practically not used.
Resistance to these drugs is also rarely formed, but side effects in the form of nausea and dyspepsia are common.
3. Penicillins – with cystitis are appointed less frequently, although they also have a high activity. Their list includes a large number of injectable forms that are used to treat severe and complicated urinary tract infections in the hospital setting.
Of the most commonly used antibiotics of this group, Amoxicillin should be noted. It is also available in combination with clavulanic acid (Amoxiclav), which makes it more stable.
Cephalosporins. The list of these drugs is represented mainly by injectable forms. There are several generations of these medicines. The latest generations are one of the most powerful antibiotics.
In cases of cystitis, they are also rarely prescribed, mainly with a proven sensitivity of the pathogen and the absence of effect from other drugs.
4. Antibacterial drugs of other groups (tetracyclines, erythromycins, sulfonamides) are used less frequently. Their use is possible in the treatment of cystitis caused by a specific flora (gonococcus, mycoplasma), and also with proven sensitivity.
5. Among other antibiotics there is a tool – Fosfomycin (Monural). It is very effective in cystitis and other diseases of the urinary tract, as it is excreted through the kidneys in unchanged form.
For the treatment of acute uncomplicated cystitis, a single dose is sometimes enough.
Preparations to fight other pathogens
In some cases, cystitis is caused not by bacteria, but by other pathogens. On their list are viruses, fungi, protozoa and parasites. Then antibiotics from the list presented above are not suitable. Requires special preparations.
It is possible to suspect that the disease is caused by one of these pathogens, according to the characteristic symptoms, if any (for example, of a cheesy type of flakes in the urine with cystitis of candidal nature).
Or with the failure of standard antibiotic therapy. Sometimes these pathogens are detected in the study of urine by laboratory methods.
For the treatment of cystitis caused by these rather rare microbes, are used:
- with the defeat of the fungus of the genus Candida – Fluconazole – antifungal agent with a systemic effect (there are also local remedies for fungi);
- viral cystitis (for example, herpetic or adenoviral nature), antiviral agents of various groups (eg, Ingavirin, Cycloferon) are used;
- if the cause of the disease is the simplest (for example, trichomonas), Metronidazole, Ornidazole, Tinidazole is prescribed;
- If parasitic invasion with a lesion of the bladder is detected, medication is selected in accordance with the type of parasite.
As can be seen from the above, the list of antibacterial agents currently used is quite impressive. They all have their niche in which their use is most justified.
Therefore, it is up to the doctor to decide which antibiotics should be taken by a woman with cystitis, since recovery depends on proper selection.
A mistake in the choice will, at best, lead to a lack of effect from the treatment, and at worst, will cause additional problems.
Antibiotic for cystitis in women: Instructions for use
The disease can take anyone by surprise. Often it appears unexpectedly, and immediately makes itself felt with unpleasant symptoms. Doctors prescribe antibiotics for the treatment of cystitis.

Children are also affected. Most often provokes a disease in them E. coli. Treatment of cystitis with antibiotics is prescribed after a full examination and determination of the reaction of the pathogen to the components of the medicine.
The disease in children can be congenital or acquired. Often it is asymptomatic. Therefore, it is important to be examined periodically in order to identify health problems in time.
All of these drugs are recommended after 12 years of age. These antibiotics are effective for inflammation of the bladder. For very young and newborns use cefuroxime. Course duration is a week.

How is the treatment?
In case of cystitis, an antibiotic is prescribed only after a complete diagnosis of the body. It is important to identify the cause that provoked the development of a dangerous infection. On the basis of this knowledge is prescribed a recipe.
Anti-inflammatory tablets may be prescribed:
They should be taken within 2-3 weeks. And also antispasmodics can be prescribed:
These are additional funds that are often prescribed. During treatment, it is necessary to inform the doctor about all the reactions of the body during the course of treatment. It is important to be constantly monitored.

Antibacterial drugs for a single dose
There are remedies that can cope with the disease in a single dose. Such drugs have been released recently. By their production the latest medical developments are used. Preparations of wide action:
- monural and its analogue fosfomycin trometamol;
The active substances of these agents are concentrated in the places where the infection is located. This achieves maximum efficiency. These drugs are recommended to drink with the acute form of the disease:

Life after taking the medicine
After successful treatment, the main danger is relapse. Perhaps this is when patients do not comply with the recommendations of the doctor, increase or decrease the dosage. This often happens when people resort to self-healing.
Cystitis after antibiotics can turn into vaginal candidiasis or vaginosis. This is due to the fact that the structure of the vaginal microflora is disturbed after a course of treatment. She needs time to recover. Against this background, new diseases may appear.

Antibiotic for cystitis: features, varieties
- The best drugs
- Additional therapy
Cystitis is a serious disease in which the bladder is severely inflamed. Hypothermia, an infection of the genitourinary system, or inadequate hygiene of the intimate area can cause this condition.
Cystitis can be acute and chronic. Most often, it affects women precisely because of the peculiarities of the physiological structure of their urogenital system.
Many patients are trying to independently treat cystitis without going to a doctor, because they believe that the disease does not require close attention from a specialist.
In fact, this is a big mistake, because an incorrectly chosen medical therapy can cause complications in a person in the form of dysbacteriosis, deterioration of the liver and kidneys. Medicines, especially antibiotics for cystitis, must be selected by the attending physician. This is done individually for each individual patient, depending on the form of cystitis, his neglect, associated diseases, as well as the age of the patient.
Moreover, in case of incorrect or untimely treatment without medical supervision, cystitis can easily become chronic, which threatens the woman or man with frequent relapses, that is, repetitions of the disease and constant pain.
It is also important to note that before prescribing an antibiotic for cystitis, the patient needs to analyze the sensitivity of the bacteria that have struck the body to this drug substance. Only a properly selected antibiotic for cystitis will be effective in treatment.
An antibiotic for cystitis is prescribed to suppress the activity of the infection. This medicine is mandatory in the treatment of bladder inflammation, urological diseases, as well as urethritis and pyelonephritis.
It is worth noting that not all antibiotics can be taken for cystitis. Most of them have strict contraindications, such as patient’s pregnancy, child age or severe kidney disease. For more information about contraindications can be in the instructions for these drugs. An antibiotic for cystitis can be of different forms of release (powder, tablets, injections). This does not really affect its effectiveness.
The following types of antibiotics that may be prescribed for the treatment of cystitis will be identified:
- Penicillins. They are well tolerated by patients and rarely cause side effects. With the right dosage, penicillins effectively act on bacteria, suppressing them.
- Cephalosporins are drugs whose treatment duration should not be more than two weeks. The best drugs in this group are Digoral, Cefalexin and Cefaclor.
- Fluoroquinols (Ofloxacin). They are usually used in the form of infections. With their help, you can quickly suppress the infection in any neglect of cystitis.
- Nitrofurans are capable of destroying the membranes of bacteria, thereby causing their death.
Also, the attending physician may prescribe an antibiotic from a cystitis group of macrolides, fluoroquinols or phosphonic acid. To date, the most commonly prescribed antibiotics are Monural and Nolicin.
Antibiotics for cystitis in women: the best drugs
As already noted above, for inflammation of the bladder, the patient requires well-chosen antibacterial therapy. Antibiotics for cystitis in women are selected individually, depending on the causative agent of the disease. Practicing self-medication in such a state will, at least, not be rational, and even dangerous for the body.
These are the most effective antibiotics for cystitis in women:
The drug Monural is effective against gram-positive bacteria.
It can be prescribed not only for the treatment of cystitis, but also in the treatment of urethritis and pyelonephritis. This cystitis antibiotic in women is produced in the form of granules, which must be dissolved in water. Contraindications to receiving Manural is renal failure and childhood.
During pregnancy, it can be taken, but only in the second and third trimesters, and only on prescription. Nolitsin is an antibiotic that belongs to the quinoline group. It can be used to treat both acute and chronic cystitis in men and women. A digital is also a frequently prescribed antibacterial drug that can be used to quickly get rid of infection and inflammation.
Cystitis: antibiotics for treatment and complementary therapy
Cystitis, antibiotics for the treatment of which are included in the main list of prescribed drugs, can cause relapses and exacerbations of inflammation even after taking these drugs. Especially often this happens when the patient has performed self-medication and has incorrectly selected the dosage or the antibiotic itself.
In this case, the bacteria may not be completely destroyed, and after only a few days after discontinuation of the drug, it begins to multiply again and cause inflammation of the bladder. In addition, if cystitis (antibiotics for treatment are required) was eliminated with antibacterial drugs, then the patient may have candida vagina and dysbiosis. In order to prevent this, during therapy it is necessary to additionally take probiotics to normalize and protect the microflora. The best of these drugs are Linex and Hilak Forte.
In addition, in order to maintain immunity and microflora in the body, during the treatment of cystitis with antibiotics for treatment it is necessary to do the following:
- Take vitamin complexes.
- Sour milk products daily. This may be kefir, cottage cheese, ryazhenka or yogurt. The main thing is to eat these foods regularly. So you can keep the microflora in good condition and protect it from failures.
- Take an echinacea tincture.
- Eat more fruits and vegetables.
It is very important to drink plenty of fluids during the treatment of cystitis. This will help to quickly overcome the inflammation. Also, a sick person is recommended to stay in bed and temporarily abandon the intimate connection, so as not to disturb the urinary system once again. To properly treat cystitis, you should practice complex therapy.
It provides treatment not only with antibiotics, but also with the following drugs:
- Anti-inflammatory drugs.
- Antispasmodic pain medication.
- Drugs that improve the work of the kidneys. It is better if they are plant-based.
Also, a sick person in this state must comply with the diet, as it is the basis of successful therapy. Thus, the patient needs to completely give up alcohol, salty, spicy and sour.
Instead, the ration should be based on cereals, soups, boiled fish and meat. You also need to enrich the diet with vegetables and fruits. Women during lactation need to use more fermented milk products. Cystitis, the antibiotics for the treatment of which the doctor must select, usually responds well to treatment, but only when it is not running.
