Trimethoprim tablets for urinary tract infections are an effective treatment for simple UTIs. It is the most commonly prescribed antibiotic by GPs for the treatment of simple urinary infections. This medication contains 200mg of the active ingredient which works to kill the bacteria which causes the infection.
For urinary tract infections, the most common length of course is 3 days. One tablet is taken TWICE daily. For more stubborn infections, it may also be prescribed for five days.
Even if symptoms dissipate before completing your course, you should make sure to finish the tablets prescribed. This is to make sure the infection has been completely defeated, to reduce the risk of it coming back.
Aside from Trimethoprim, there are a number of other antibiotics which are used in the treatment of UTIs. Macrobid (Nitrofurantoin), is also available via the online doctor service.
Apart from antibiotic treatments, there are a number of home remedies for cystitis. These can help relieve the symptoms associated with cystitis like stinging upon urination.
