Cystitis Treatment - Standby & Immediate Use Antibiotic
How can Anytime Doctor help me?We provide this regulated, specialist service for patients who wish to obtain medicine to treat cystitis. Cystitis is a common infection of the bladder, it causes burning sensations during urination and a frequent need to urinate. This service is only for women aged 18-55 who have previously been diagnosed with cystitis by a doctor or nurse and who could recognise the symptoms of cystitis if they appear.
Between 20 to 40 per cent of women will get cystitis in their lifetime. This service allows you to purchase treatment for immediate use if you currently have symptoms, or treatment for future use if you would like to be prepared for a future outbreak.
All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential (we do not inform your GP). You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of lengthy doctor waiting rooms.

Why are no prices shown for Anytime Doctor treatment services?At Anytime Doctor, we aim to offer you similar pattern of healthcare as if you were to visit your normal GP for a face to face consultation. We believe it is important that you complete a medical consultation and receive a diagnosis by a licensed doctor before you are offered treatment options. Once a doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your registration and medical consultation is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment after your consultation.

How does this cystitis treatment work?Your doctor can prescribe you trimethoprim, it is the most widely used antibiotic for the cystitis treatment. It will cure over 90% of urine infections.
How to take your cystitis treatmentYou should take this treatment twice a day for three days. Normally, symptoms start to improve after 24 hours. If your symptoms have not gone completely at the end of 3 days, medical advice is needed.
What are the potential side-effects (contraindications) of this cystitis treatment?All medication and antibiotics can cause side effects. Your cystitis treatment can cause indigestion, loose stools and rashes. The leaflet accompanying the treatment will list some of the rarer side-effects.
When answering your medical questionnaire for cystitis treatment it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before they prescribe you treatment.
How effective is this cystitis treatment?Trimethoprim is very effective if you follow your Doctor's prescribing instructions.
Limitations of cystitis self-diagnosis?The limitation of cystitis self-diagnosis is that there may be another cause of your symptoms other than cystitis. If this is the case, the antibiotic treatment a doctor can prescribe is unlikely to be effective and you would need to see your GP for a face-to-face consultation.
Who should not use this particular cystitis treatment service?You should not request this treatment service if you are allergic to trimethoprim.
You should not request this treatment service if you are pregnant, breast feeding or if you suffer from liver or kidney disease.
Looking after your cystitis treatmentThis treatment is for YOU only. Do not give it to others. It may not suit them. Do not take this medicine after the expiry date stamped on the pack. Keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children.
