General principles for the treatment of prostatitis

To begin with, we note that it is unacceptable to self-medicate inflammation of the prostate gland. Any medicines should be used only as prescribed by a doctor.

With the bacterial nature of the inflammatory process, antibacterial drugs are used, selected depending on the sensitivity of the pathogen. The dosage and duration of antibiotics are also selected individually.

In addition, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, herbal preparations that stop inflammation and improve metabolic processes in the prostate can be used.

If there are complaints of difficulty urinating, alpha1-blockers are indicated that restore urodynamics.

Various non-pharmacological methods are also of great importance. First of all, this includes prostate massage, carried out in a chronic inflammatory process. In addition, the treatment plan is actively complemented by a variety of physiotherapy procedures, such as laser therapy, electrical stimulation, and so on.

Effective Medicines

So what drugs have the best effect on prostatitis?

As for antibiotics, fluoroquinolones and macrolides are most often prescribed for prostate inflammation, but other groups of antibacterial agents can also be used.

If we talk about herbal preparations, then a remedy based on an extract of the fruits of a creeping palm tree can be used. It has anti-inflammatory, antiandrogenic, antiexudative action. This medication is actively prescribed not only for chronic prostatitis, but also for benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Another herbal preparation is a combination remedy, which includes Canadian goldenrod herb, licorice roots, perforated St. John’s wort herb, rhizomes with purple echinacea roots. This medication improves microcirculation in the tissues of the prostate, is active against certain bacteria, and reduces the severity of inflammation.

Another effective remedy for prostatitis is suppositories, the active ingredient of which is biomass obtained from insect larvae of the gypsy moth species. In 2020, scientists from the Kuban State Medical University conducted a study, the results of which prove the feasibility of using this drug in patients with chronic bacterial prostatitis.

Of the group of alpha1-blockers, tamsulosin is most often used, which helps to relax the smooth muscle fibers of the bladder neck and prostate, which leads to an improvement in urine outflow.
