Drug therapy, in turn, involves the use of drugs aimed at eliminating various problems. Drugs for the treatment of inflammation of the prostate are presented in different dosage forms, they can combine several actions simultaneously.

Dosage forms for prostatitis

Prostatitis drugs are presented in the following dosage forms:

  • tablets or capsules;
  • injectable drugs;
  • rectal suppositories;
  • microclysters and installations.

The latter can be done on the basis of both natural ingredients and the use of medicines.


You can't do without pills in prostatitis therapy. Treatment of chronic prostatitis in men can be performed with other dosage forms, but only during periods of remission. You will need to take pills during the exacerbation. Since most often the inflammatory process in the prostate gland is provoked by infectious agents, treatment necessarily involves the use of various types of antibiotics. In addition, the following groups of drugs prescribed according to the indications in each case can be used in the treatment of all types of prostatitis:

  • alpha blockers;
  • non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs;
  • muscle relaxants;
  • analgesics;
  • diuretics;
  • hormonal preparations;
  • immunostimulants.

In addition, complex preparations have been developed that have a combined effect on prostatitis.


Such drugs are needed in almost all cases of acute prostatitis provoked by pathogenic microorganisms. When the inflammation is caused by congestion in the pelvic organs, antibiotics can also be used if the tests reveal the activity of the so-called non-specific or opportunistic microflora.

Self-medication with antibiotics, uncontrolled intake, use of such drugs on the advice of friends or the Internet is strictly prohibited. To determine which drugs are needed in a given case, only a qualified doctor can rely on the test results. Some patients need a combination of several types of antibiotics. Determining the type of drug, doses, dosing regimens and duration of treatment is the sole responsibility of the urologist.

The following groups of antibiotics can be used to treat prostatitis:

  • fluoroquinolones- destroy the DNA synthesis of cells from pathogenic microorganisms, thus suppressing their vital activity;
  • tetracyclines- broad-spectrum antibiotics that suppress the pathogenic microflora, quite difficult for patients to tolerate;
  • cephalosporins- damage the cell membranes of pathogenic microorganisms by interfering with their life and reproduction, these antibiotics have many side effects, have a negative impact on the state of the gastrointestinal tract, so almost neverare prescribed in tablets and it is recommended to administer intramuscularly;
  • penicillins- block the synthesis of the protein needed by microorganisms to build cellular structures, these funds, unlike the previous ones, have almost no side effects and are taken in tablets;
  • macrolides- drugs with the least toxicity to the human body, are very well tolerated by patients, but are rarely prescribed due to unproven efficacy in the treatment of prostatitis.

The need for a course of antibiotics according to certain schemes and in certain doses is due to the peculiarities of their action. Only after reaching a certain concentration, which must be replenished at regular intervals, drugs begin to suppress the impact of pathogenic microflora. It takes ten days to a month to completely destroy it. If the course is not completed, as some patients do when they feel well, infectious agents can remain in the body, acquire drug resistance and, under certain conditions, begin to multiply again.

Alpha-adrenergic receptor blockers

This group of drugs is prescribed for severe urinary problems to relax the smooth muscles of the bladder and urethra.

Alpha-adrenergic blockers differ in their action - some act selectively on receptors, others do not have this selectivity.

Many alpha-blockers are hypotensive, so they are not prescribed to patients with low blood pressure. They have almost no side effects, prevent the return flow of urine and prevent re-infection of the prostate.

Analgesics and antispasmodics

With a pronounced pain syndrome, especially in the inflammatory-purulent course of prostatitis, you can not do without painkillers. The pain of prostatitis is so severe that the patient cannot even touch the affected area. Most analgesics do not affect the area of ​​pain, but relieve the sensitivity of the brain centers in the cortex. Therefore, it is not worth using them regularly, they do not provide real help to fix the problem.

Antispasmodics have another effect. These drugs relax the smooth muscles of the organs, relieve spasms.

Anti-inflammatory drugs

These drugs are aimed at eliminating inflammation, reducing swelling in the affected area, have antipyretic and analgesic effects, facilitate urination, but most often the inflammation is removed with suppositories and microclysters.

Preparations based on herbal ingredients

Natural preparations are recommended for use in chronic forms of the disease. They require a long course of administration, but they are able to improve prostate function, suppress the activity of pathogenic microflora, strengthen the immune system, which suffers in prolonged fight against infection.


Several types of antibiotics are recommended for intramuscular use in prostatitis.

Rectal suppositories

Rectal suppositories are considered the most effective way to relieve pain and inflammation. Their effectiveness is due to the fact that they bypass the bloodstream, liver and gastrointestinal tract, penetrating directly into the affected area. Doctors recommend its use in the treatment of prostatitis:

  • ichthyol candles;
  • candles with medicines;
  • candles with propolis.
