Cystitis is an inflammatory reaction affecting bladder tissue. Inflammation occurs on the background of any infection: more often - bacterial, less often - fungal or viral. The treatment of such a disease is not always successful: relapses are often noted, and even complications develop. However, many patients have already found a solution to their problem, taking Fitolysin for cystitis. This herbal medicine is relatively new in the domestic pharmaceutical market. When and how to take this tool to achieve the most positive result?

Treatment of cystitis phytolysin

Does phytolysin help with cystitis? First of all, you need to understand that the independent appointment of medicines to get rid of cystitis is a dangerous occupation. At home, it will not be possible to find out the original cause of the disease, determine the form of the pathology and identify the pathogen. Cystitis can act as a separate uncomplicated pathology, however, it often becomes a consequence or a background malfunction with problems in the female genital area, with pyelonephritis, and genital infections.

An important condition for successful treatment of cystitis is an integrated approach to therapy. It is necessary to combine the intake of drugs that counteract the infection with antispasmodics, symptomatic and regenerating agents. Here is the vegetable phytolysin that is suitable as such a reducing agent.

Phytolysin, in fact, is a plant diuretic, whose action is based on the properties of its components. The drug helps to relieve the inflammatory reaction and eliminate spasm of smooth muscles.

Phytolysin components stimulate the dissolution of mineral compounds in the cavity of the bladder, preventing stone formation. And due to the fact that Fitolysin is a multicomponent drug, then its action is extensive and diverse. That is why the effect of the use of funds can be seen almost the next day after the start of treatment.

Indications Phytolysin

Fitolysin is used not only to eliminate the inflammatory process in the bladder, but also to treat other problems with the urinary tract:

  • acute and chronic inflammatory-infectious diseases of the urinary tract (inflammation of the urethra or prostate, pyelonephritis);
  • urolithiasis, if surgery is contraindicated or not indicated.

In addition, Phytolysin can be used to prevent cystitis, namely, to prevent the recurrence of the inflammatory process, or the formation of kidney stones, urinals or ureters.

Phytolysin at the first signs of cystitis acts almost instantly: visible improvements are already observed during the first days. Pain, discomfort and burning during urination disappear. Urging ceases to be painful and frequent, general well-being is normalized.

Fitolysin may be used for cystitis with blood in the urine. One of the components of the tool - the horsetail - successfully eliminates bleeding, and other components - for example, the bird mountaineer and herniation - stop the development of the inflammatory process, which is also important when blood appears at the end of urination.

It is allowed to take Fitolysin for acute cystitis, for the chronic form of the disease. In the latter case, the tool will help prevent recurrences. However, the duration of the course of taking Fitolysin in chronic cystitis should be 1-1.5 months.

Phytolysin for cervical cystitis (trigonite) can also be effective. However, to eliminate this type of disease, it is necessary to apply an integrated approach, where the drug will become only part of the overall treatment.

Fitolysin is appropriate for cystitis in women, men, and even children. Its use is safe, and the positive effect on the condition and functionality of the bladder is clinically proven.

Release form

The main form of release of Phytolysin is a paste: it has a dark greenish-brown color, a thick consistency and a specific aroma. The drug is packaged in 100 g of metal (aluminum) tubes.

Phytolysin paste from cystitis is quite convenient to use, unlike herbal infusions and decoctions: the paste is easy to dose, and the package itself does not take up much space, so you can easily take it with you to rest, work or travel.

Tablets for cystitis Fitolysin is an encapsulated form of the drug. Available in the form of soft capsules packed in blister plates and cardboard packaging. One pack contains 36 capsules. This dosage form is less common, and most often presented under the trade name Fitolysin Nefrokapsuly.

The production of the drug is established in Poland.

Phytolysin Analogs for Cystitis

To get rid of cystitis, herbal remedies are often connected to general therapy. With uncomplicated disease of non-infectious origin, in the absence of background inflammatory processes, the use of such herbal remedies can indeed be successful. However, the majority of patients still have to prescribe along with Phytolysin and other drugs that have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects.

If problems arise with the acquisition of Fitolysin, then, with the permission of the doctor, it can be replaced by other, similar in effect, herbal preparations.

  • Cystone is a plant diuretic and nephrolitic, which has bactericidal capabilities and enhances the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy.
  • Canephron is an agent that combines the extracts of wild rose, lovage, centaury and rosemary. Kanefron quickly relieves pain and cramps, has an antibacterial effect.
  • Lingonberry leaves - are sold as dry raw materials, packaged in filter bags. The infusion of the drug has an antiseptic and antimicrobial effect, especially in relation to Staphylococcus aureus.
  • Urolesan - herbal remedy in the form of drops, capsules, syrup. The basic components are fir, mint, wild carrot seeds, hop cones, oregano, etc. However, despite its bactericidal and diuretic effects, urolesin is more often prescribed not for cystitis, but for urolithiasis, pyelonephritis, cholecystitis. For more information, contact your doctor.

Many patients consider a drug such as monural to be classified as a herbal remedy for cystitis. Indeed, monural is used to treat acute bacterial cystitis, but it belongs to the category of broad spectrum antibiotics. Its action is due to the properties of fosfomycin - the active ingredient. But herbal remedy is a drug with a similar name - monurel. The effectiveness of monurel in cystitis is due to the cranberry extract contained in the preparation. Monurel is available in tablets and is suitable for long-term use. It is recommended for the treatment of cystitis, and for the prevention of recurrence of the disease.


Most patients respond well to the treatment of cystitis Fitolysinom. Rare complaints about the drug are mainly associated with a specific smell and taste, which not everyone likes. However, the fact that Fitolysin for cystitis is effective does not cause anyone the slightest doubt. The main thing is to remember that even after the completion of treatment, the state of the urogenital system cannot be released out of control in order to avoid the development of a repeated inflammatory process. It is highly desirable to additionally consult with your gynecologist and gastroenterologist, because it is often the problems in these areas that provoke the development of cystitis.
