Cystoleve powders are lemon flavoured powders used to relive the symptoms of cystitis in
women. They are dissolved in a glass full of water to give a clear sweet lemon flavoured
drink. They are packed in sachets containing 9.05g of powder, a carton contains 6 sachets.
The active substance in your medicine will reduce the discomfort of cystitis by making the
urine alkaline. This reduces the burning/ stinging pain felt on passing urine and inhibits the
growth of bacteria.
After absorption, sodium citrate is metabolised to bicarbonate. Bicarbonate ions are excreted
in the urine along with sodium ions. The urine is then rendered alkaline.
