Suppositories are administered rectally. Dissolution and resorption of the drug occurs in the rectum.
The prerogative aspects of using this method are:
- The speed of penetration of the drug into the prostate gland increases the therapeutic effect.
- The lack of direct contact with the digestive organs minimizes the manifestation of side effects (nausea and dyspepsia), and also reduces the risk of intoxication.
Rectal administration accelerates the process of tissue regeneration of the prostate and normalization of urination, which provides a faster therapeutic result than using tablets.
Therapy with tablets is advisable for inflammatory diseases or mechanical damage to the anus, perianal zone and rectum. In addition, the tablet form does not require special conditions of use and storage (candles should only be stored in the refrigerator).
The question of choosing the form of Vitoprost for the treatment of prostatitis is decided by the urologist (andrologist), taking into account the individual nature of the disease and the characteristics of the man’s body.
Vitaprost is a medication designed to eliminate prostatitis. The disease is an inflammatory lesion of the endocrine gland (prostate) located in the pelvic organs in men. The treatment of inflammation is carried out by an andrologist or urologist.
The tactics of therapy depend on the following conditions:
- The nature of the course of the disease (acute or chronic).
- The nature of the occurrence (bacterial or non-bacterial).
- Individual characteristics of the patient (the presence of allergic reactions and concomitant pathologies, age category).
Comprehensive treatment includes the use of medicines, diet therapy, rational physical activity, massage and special gymnastics, and traditional medicine.
