I am experiencing pressure in my bladder, particularly when standing,
Probably cystitis, follow the advice below.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I understand your concern.
The most common cause of bladder pressure is urinary tract infection or cystitis.
I recommend to do a complete blood count and a urine test to confirm the diagnosis.
Meanwhile, I suggest to continue using AZO for temporary relief three tablets a day.
I also recommend to drink liquids and especially cranberry juice.
If the diagnosis is confirmed I suggest to take prescription antibiotics such as Ciprofloxacine 500 mg twice a day.
This medication is taken for five days on prescription.
You should consult your doctor before taking it.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Follow up consultation
Hi again dear,
If the leukocytes are positive in the urine test the treatment consists of antibiotics.
Antibiotics' prescriptions are beyond the scope of online medical consultation.
In my daily practice, I suggest using Ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice a day for five days.
Please consult your doctor about the prescription.
Hope my answer was helpful.
