Please note that the first line treatment for cystitis that is caused by a bacterial UTI is Nitrofurantoin, as there is quite a high bacterial resistance to Trimethoprim. Therefore it is wise to only use Trimethoprim to treat a UTI after a urine test has confirmed that the bacterial strain causing the infection is sensitive to Trimethoprim. Please note that this treatment is currently only offered for female patients. If you are male and are experiencing symptoms of a urinary tract infection, you should visit your GP or a sexual health clinic as this could be a sign of another infection or a more serious underlying problem.
When bacterial infections like cystitis spread, the individual cells need to produce DNA. To do this, these cells require a steady supply of folic acid. The cells produce the folic acid themselves, which is then used for the creation of new bacterial DNA. By doing this, the cystitis infection is able to spread faster than the body’s immune system is able to deal with it.
Trimethoprim is an antibiotic that works to prevent the infection from spreading. It does this by stopping the bacterial cells that cause cystitis from synthesising the folic acid that they need to be able to multiply. By acting in this way, this medication stops the spread of infection and renders the remaining cells extremely vulnerable to the immune system. This gives the body time to kill the remaining bacterial cells.
Trimethoprim is an extremely effective treatment for cystitis. This condition can cause a great deal of discomfort, with symptoms including pain when urinating and an uncomfortable burning sensation. As the bacteria can multiply so quickly, it can take a while for the body to naturally deal with the infection. This medication will help prevent the bacterial cells from multiplying and thus stop the infection from spreading. This means that Trimethoprim will significantly shorten the life span of the infection and provide quick and fast relief from the symptoms of cystitis.
Trimethoprim can also be used as a long-term preventative treatment for women who suffer from cystitis on a regular basis. For people who experience this as a recurring condition, this medication can be used to reduce the possibility of an infection developing and shorten the time taken for any potential infection to clear. This means that Trimethoprim is an effective treatment for cystitis in both the short and long term.
