Due to the rise in antibiotic resistance in the UK, our clinical team have taken the decision to no longer offer antibiotics to patients from our online platform for certain conditions.

It is important that clinicians and patients across the UK take collective responsibility to only use antibiotics when absolutely necessary, to protect ourselves and our future generations.

Local initiatives are in place related to Antimicrobial Stewardship across the UK, and you can still get access to antibiotics from your local GP who will ensure that access to antibiotics is on a risk assessment basis. For some non antibiotic alternatives please check out the medications below.


Cystitis is a common, but unpleasant UTI (urinary tract infection) that causes pain when you urinate and you will feel the need to pee more often and urgently than normal. Common symptoms of cystitis include pain or burning sensation when peeing, urine that is dark, cloudy or smells strong and needing to pee more often than normal.

It is caused when bacteria that usually live harmlessly in the bowel or skin find their way into the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body). Working out why this happened can be tricky, but it can occur through having sex, wiping your bottom incorrectly after going to the toilet (you should always wipe front to back), inserting a tampon or urinary catheter or using a diaphragm for contraception.

Cystitis symptoms aren’t usually a cause for concern and most cases will clear up within a few days, you can usually use pain killers or over-the-counter cystitis relief products to manage symptoms.

However, if you are experiencing episodes of cystitis frequently or your symptoms do not improve, it is important to seek medical advice, as you may need regular treatment or it may be a sign of a kidney infection.

Antibiotics like MacroBID, which is commonly used to treat infections of the bladder, kidney and urinary tract, are often prescribed to those who have serious or frequent cystitis.

Antibiotics work by killing off the bacteria that causes an infection, helping your body to fight it so you can recover more quickly and easing your symptoms fast.

If your cystitis symptoms have not improved after a few days, fill in our quick questionnaire and our prescriber will identify the cystitis medication options for you, then we will ship your medication quickly and discreetly in plain packaging.
