What are Numark Cystitis Relief Sachets?

Numark Cystitis Relief are sachets containing sodium citrate dihydrate BP 4.0g to provide relief from symptoms of cystitis in women. This pack contains 6 sachets and is to be taken as a two-day course to fight painful symptoms of cystitis. It contains sodium citrate dihydrate which makes urine less acidic and therefore less painful when you pass water. The Cystitis Relief Sachets have a delicious cranberry flavour.

 

What is Cystitis?

Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder and commonly caused by a bladder infection. It is a common type of urinary tract infection (UTI), particularly in women. Mild cases will often clear up by themselves within a few days, but some people experience symptoms of cystitis frequently and may need regular or long-term treatment.

Symptoms of Cystitis

  • Pain, burning or stinging when you pee
  • Needing to pee more often and urgently than normal
  • Urine that’s dark, cloudy or strong smelling
  • Pain low down in your tummy
  • Feeling generally unwell, achy, sick and tired

Possible symptoms in young children include:

  • A high temperature
  • Weakness or irritability
  • Reduced appetite
  • Vomiting

When to see a GP

Although most cases of cystitis will clear up on its own, but you should seek advice from a GP if:

  • You’re not sure whether you have cystitis
  • Your symptoms do not start to improve within 3 days
  • You get cystitis frequently
  • You have severe symptoms, such as blood in your urine, a fever or pain in your side
  • You’re pregnant and have symptoms of cystitis
  • You’re a man and have symptoms of cystitis
  • Your child has symptoms of cystitis

Causes of cystitis

Most cases of cystitis occur when bacteria that live harmlessly in the bowel or on the skin get into the bladder through the tube that carries urine out of your body (the urethra)

It’s not always clear what causes this to happen but some things can increase your risk of experiencing cystitis including:

  • Having sex
  • Wiping your bottom from back to front after going to the toilet
  • Having a thin tube inserted into the urethra to drain the bladder (urinary catheter)
  • Being younger than 1 or older than 75
  • Being pregnant
  • Using a diaphragm for contraception
  • Having diabetes
  • Having a weakened immune system

Women may get cystitis more often than men because their bottom is closer to their urethra and the urethra is much shorter, which enables bacteria to get into the bladder more easily.

 

How does Numark Cystitis Relief treat Cystitis?

Numark Cystitis Relief contains the active ingredient sodium citrate dihydrate which works to relieve cystitis symptoms by making your urine less acidic. Making urine less acidic can help it to sting or burn less when you pass water. It also helps to prevent any more bacteria growing in your bladder, which helps to treat the infection. You should start to feel relief within a few hours.

Empty the contents of one Numark Cystitis Relief into a glass of water and stir until dissolved completely. Drink right away. Take one Numark Cystitis Relief sachet 3 times a day for 2 days. If your symptoms do not improve after 2 days, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
