UTI treatments

There are different treatments available for UTIs that work in different ways or at different stages.

It’s important to understand the place for each.

When you have symptoms of a UTI

While taking treatments for a UTI, remember to drink plenty of water and empty your bladder fully each time you go to the toilet.

  • Antibiotics – The standard treatment your doctor may prescribe when you see them about a UTI is a course of antibiotics. These are generally quite effective in treating the cause of a UTI by killing the bacteria that are causing your symptoms.
  • Urinary alkalinisers – These treatments are used to relieve the painful symptoms of a UTI only. They work by raising the pH (making it more alkaline), thereby making urine more comfortable to pass. They will not treat the underlying cause of a UTI or prevent recurrent UTIs.
