How can Anytime Pharmacy help me?

We provide this regulated, specialist service for patients who wish to obtain medicine to treat cystitis. Cystitis is a common infection of the bladder, it causes burning sensations during urination and a frequent need to urinate. This service is only for women aged 18-55 who have previously been diagnosed with cystitis by a doctor or nurse and who could recognise the symptoms of cystitis if they appear.

Between 20 to 40 per cent of women will get cystitis in their lifetime. This service allows you to purchase treatment for immediate use if you currently have symptoms, or treatment for future use if you would like to be prepared for a future outbreak.

All services provided by Anytime Pharmacy are safe, fast and confidential (we do not inform your GP). You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of lengthy doctor waiting rooms.

Choose same day click and collect from your local participating pharmacy. The benefit of collecting from your local pharmacy is that you can go to the pharmacy at a time that suits you, it's faster than a mail order delivery and no-one has to wait at home to sign for your medicine.

How does the Anytime Pharmacy service work?

Step 1:             Register online and complete the free online medical questionnaire consultation. A doctor will review your questionnaire and, if it is safe to do so, approve you for treatment. You do not pay for your doctor consultation.
Step 2: If you are approved for treatment you will be sent a text message asking you to log back into your secure patient record. You can pay for your cystitis treatment using a debit or credit card.
Step 3: You will be sent a FREE SMS (text message) when a doctor has sent your prescription to your nominated pharmacy. We advise you to call your nominated pharmacy to check your prescription is ready, then collect your medicine.

Why are no prices shown for Anytime Pharmacy treatment services?

Under current UK advertising law we cannot show you prescription-only-medicine (POM) prices prior to a medical consultation with a registered doctor. Once your doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your registration and medical consultation is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment.

All of our prices are fully inclusive, and so for prescription medicines the prices include the cost of the consultation, the issuing of a private prescription, and dispensing of the medicine itself. There are no hidden extras.

How does this cystitis treatment work?

Your doctor can prescribe you trimethoprim, it is the most widely used antibiotic for the cystitis treatment. It will cure over 90% of urine infections.

How to take your cystitis treatment

You should take this treatment twice a day for three days. Normally, symptoms start to improve after 24 hours. If your symptoms have not gone completely at the end of 3 days, medical advice is needed.

What are the potential side-effects (contraindications) of this cystitis treatment?

All medication and antibiotics can cause side effects. Your cystitis treatment can cause indigestion, loose stools and rashes. The leaflet accompanying the treatment will list some of the rarer side-effects.

When answering your medical questionnaire for cystitis treatment it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before they prescribe you treatment.

How effective is this cystitis treatment?

Trimethoprim is very effective if you follow your Doctor's prescribing instructions.

Limitations of cystitis self-diagnosis?

The limitation of cystitis self-diagnosis is that there may be another cause of your symptoms other than cystitis. If this is the case, the antibiotic treatment a doctor can prescribe is unlikely to be effective and you would need to see your GP for a face-to-face consultation.

Who should not use this particular cystitis treatment service?

You should not request this treatment service if you are allergic to trimethoprim.

You should not request this treatment service if you are pregnant, breast feeding or if you suffer from liver or kidney disease.

Looking after your cystitis treatment

This treatment is for YOU only. Do not give it to others. It may not suit them. Do not take this medicine after the expiry date stamped on the pack. Keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children.
