Cystitis treatment to cure abdominal pain

This service is for women only.

Cystitis is a common infection of the bladder that can be painful when it occurs.

If you suffer from cystitis and can recognise the symptoms, we can provide effective treatment from our online doctor service.

We offer MacroBid® antibiotics to treat cystitis. This antibiotic is highly effective in treating bladder infections and symptoms usually improve within 24 hours. 

You can also order a course of your cystitis medication for future use, so that you have your treatment ready when your infection starts.

To place an order, fill in a brief questionnaire. One of our doctors will review your order and prescribe a suitable treatment. Existing patients should login first.

Medication Pack Size Price
MacroBid® 6 capsules £25.00
MacroBid® for future use 6 capsules £25.00

Dispensing and standard delivery included.
Click & Collect: free (available for next-day collection in Alpha XR Pharmacies)
Next Day Delivery: £3.99

How our service works

  • Orders received before 4pm will be sent out the same day. Orders received after 4pm will be sent out the next working day.
  • Your treatment will be posted to you via your choice of standard or next day delivery.
  • Someone will need to sign for the delivery, otherwise it will be held at your local post office.
  • The treatment arrives in plain, discreet packaging.
  • Order & Collect (our same day in-store pick up service) is also available in selected Alpha XR stores. 

The antibiotic MacroBid rarely cause side effects.

In rare cases, side effects can include:

  • Skin rashes
  • Diarrhoea
  • Feeling sick

The symptoms of cystitis will usually clear up within 4-9 days without taking any medicines. Drinking plenty of water can help to clear the infection faster.

Your local pharmacist will be able to advise on over-the-counter treatments that do not require a prescription.

Some people find that drinking cranberry juice or taking cranberry capsules can help to prevent infections recurring.

    Totally faultless service. Easy to use and far faster than the "call again tomorrow on the offchance there might be an appointment" whilst getting more Ill situation in most GP practices. Medication arrived quickly and excellent contact while you finish your treatment. Will definitely use more often.

    The only problem i could see was that the system said two working days when in fact the prescription was ready later that afternoon but i did not know that. Could have saved me two days of discomfort had i known it was available. Having said that easier than trying to get a GP appointment (if you can get passed the receptionist!)

    This was a brilliant service that allowed me to order antibiotics online without drs appointment - rather not have paid £25.00 but given that it was my only option as i was going on holiday the next day it was worth every penny .. great idea if u need medicine and can not get access to GP ..

    I used the online dr service to obtain antibiotics for a bladder infection. Overall it was very straightforward indeed but my infection started on a Sunday so was not able to pick up the meds for two very painful days. I would have been very happy to pay extra for the meds to be couriered to me and maybe this an option to consider? Also people should know that if you collect from a post office they will request ID, which was not made clear Overall though this was a great service and much preferable to waiting for ages in the drs reception for an emergency appt Cost was very reasonable indeed as well

    I was disappointed with the service. It states if item is ordered before 4pm they offer next day service. I needed a prescription urgently so ordered early and the prescription was,complete at 9.30 am. I paid extra for Saturday delivery, but the item was not dispatched that day. it eventually arrived on Monday.
