Cystitis treatment to cure abdominal pain

This service is for women under the age of 65 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. 

If you think you have the symptoms of cystitis or a UTI, but you're not quite sure, you can order our TestCard bundle. This is a simple at-home test you can take to find out if you have a UTI (Urinary tract infection) that also includes treatment. 

Before ordering your TestCard please check you have a compatible mobile device. If you do not have a compatible device, you will not be able to use your TestCard.

    These antibiotics were a god send as since this pandemic started our doctors have been terrible. The tablets worked well, felt much better by the second day. Great service and added bonus you can actually get to speak to a doctor if you need to. I will be telling everyone about this wonderful service.

    I suffered with different stomach issues for years which my GP put down as IBS and had bladder problems and I was always constipated but never really got diagnosed by my GP after having numerous of tests. I almost lost a hope to ever be normal again. Luckily I ordered the medication from Alpha XR doctor for to treat UTIs. I had 3 days treatment and all the symptoms are gone now. My sleep has improved and quality of life. Big thanks to Alpha XR team and their understanding after I explained how I was feeling and what tests I have done in the past. I had no side effects. Great service. Very quick as well.

    Such a godsend to get the prescription I needed so quickly giving me the chance to recover so much faster and no stress caused by trying to get through on the telephone to my surgery and trying to work only to be told I would have to wait several days for the result of a test before the doctor would even consider giving me a prescription - or two weeks for an appointment to see a Doctor- product was exactly as ordered.

    I was able to have contact with the the online Doctor. Completed online questionnaire regarding a diagnosis I had previously had which recurred. Took course of antibiotics which completed resolved the problem. Received follow up emails asking if I needed any more advice and if the medication had worked. Price for medication is expensive compared to a prescription but the care I received made up for the cost.

    These pills didn’t work. That doesn’t mean that they won’t work for other people but you get 6 pills for ALOT of money and they did not work for me. I am now abroad (in turkey) and have bought different antibiotics. You don’t need a prescription for antibiotics here. You can get them at a chemist over the counter easily. They are £2 and that is for 30 100mg tablets. (This medication is Turkish and called Piyeloseptyl ). I would say that you need 5 days worth of the macro bid 100mg tablets to make sure that they have worked instead of 3 but I’m no doctor. Anyway I also think the price is absolutely ridiculous and would advise anyone to go to a doctor or make an emergency appointment if necessary as it was for me as this will be cheaper!

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 ..
