Cystitis is a painful problem. Symptoms include a burning sensation when passing urine. Many women suffer from recurrent attacks of cystitis but maintaining bladder health can help prevent these. Most tablets and capsules contain a concentrated extract of cranberry, which has been shown to relieve and prevent cystitis infections. Tablets are suitable for vegetarians and anyone on a gluten-free or lactose-free diet. Take one tablet daily as a preventive measure.
If you already have cystitis, try effervescent tablets containing potassium citrate. Dropped in a glass of water, these tablets make the urine less acidic. This relieves the pain you feel when passing urine.
