Adrian Thomas Fferyllfa Pharmacy


Cystitis is inflammation of the bladder, usually caused by a bladder infection. It’s a common type of urinary tract infection (UTI), particularly in women, and is usually more of a nuisance than a cause of concern. Mild cases will often get better by themselves.

The main symptoms include:

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

See your GP if:

  • You’re not sure if you have cystitis
  • Your symptoms do not start to improve within 3 days
  • You get cystitis frequently
  • You have severe symptoms like blood in urine or fever
  • You’re pregnant, a man or a child

It may help to take paracetamol or ibuprofen, drink plenty of water, hold a hot water bottle against your tummy, avoid having sex and pee frequently.

Treatment service
(This service is for women only.)

We offer Macrobid (nitrofurantoin) antibiotics to treat cystitis. This antibiotic is very effective in treating bladder infections and symptoms usually improve within 24 hours. You can also order a course for future use so that you have it ready. You will need to call in and fill out a questionnaire / consent form and, if suitable, you can purchase Macrobid 100 mr capsules (6) for £10.
