Symptoms related to uncomplicated lower UTIs such as Cystitis in females can be adequately treated with either alkali-based neutralizing sachets or antibiotics.

  • Alkali Salts: these are available in sachets and work to relief cystitis symptoms by neutralizing the acidic environment produced by bacteria within the bladder. It is important to note this treatment only provides symptom relief but does not have any antibiotic effect.
  • Antibiotics: short three-day courses with antibiotics such as Nitrofurantoin is widely considered first line treatment for uncomplicated Cystitis. Trimethoprim may be considered in those who cannot tolerate Nitrofurantoin as both are highly effective in treating uncomplicated Cystitis.
