Effercitrate Tablets are a treatment for the symptoms of Cystitis and as an initial therapy in mild symptomatic Cystitis prior to an MSU (Midstream Specimen of Urine) result.
Effercitrate comes in the form of an effervescent tablet. When fully dissolved in water, the solution contains Potassium citrate and Citric acid. Potassium citrate makes the urine more alkaline, which helps soothe the bladder and urethra lining, helping to relieve the discomfort caused by the infection.
