Traditional Chronic Prostatitis treatments like strong antibiotics are often ineffective and come with dangerous side effects. Q-UROL offers an efficacious option for alleviating prostate symptoms associated with chronic prostatitis, CPPS, dysuria, pelvic pain and/or genital discomfort especially for men who have tried Prosta-Q and are seeking additional anti-inflammatory support. Q-UROL offers all of the benefits of Prosta-Q, but with time release technology and extra strength anti-inflammatory power. Additionally, for men suffering from symptoms associated with the urinary flow and function often affiliated with BPH, and/or nocturia, Q-UROL’s anti-inflammatory action may provide relief while also promoting general prostate health. With the addition of Pollen Extract, Q-Urol has been shown in published urological studies to help maintain prostate health and specifically target pelvic or genital discomfort.

Q and A by with our Consulting Medical Advisory Board
What is Q-Urol?
Q-Urol is a nutritional supplement formulated to maintain prostate health. Q-Urol contains a series of natural, clinically proven ingredients including quercetin, pollen extract, as well as papain/bromelain to aid digestion. The problem researchers and clinicians experienced initially was that it takes unusually large, unrealistic amounts of these healthy foods on a regular basis to increase your body’s levels of these compounds to the amount that has demonstrated benefit from clinical studies. It is for this reason that maximum benefits are seen at the recommended doses in a time-release form.
Why use Q-Urol to address symptoms associated with pelvic or genital discomfort and sexual and urinary dysfunction?
Few dietary supplements or ingredients compared to Q-Urol have as much clinical research and support from some of the top urologists in the world. Q-Urol is one of the most popular products in the world utilized with or without prescription medications for pelvic and prostate health support. For example, it is actually used by pharmacists, primary care physicians, urologists and other healthcare professionals in several countries outside of the United States.
What indications support use of Q-Urol?
We suggest that physicians perform localizing urine cultures (and if possible expressed prostatic secretions) in all men prior to therapy. This test can be as simple as culturing a specimen of urine taken after the physician performs a prostate massage. We recommend that the physician sterilize any infection that is found in the prostate by using an appropriate antibiotic for at least four weeks. In men with extensive inflammation of the prostate, some physicians will often choose a course of antibiotics for patients if the patient has not been so treated before. Men with no evidence of active infection and those who have failed treatment with antibiotics are ideal candidates for the prostate supportive benefits of Q-Urol.
Can Q-Urol help me with addressing urinary flow and function symptoms often related to BPH?
While Q-Urol was not specifically designed to address urinary function issues associated with BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia), Q-Urol does contain anti-inflammatory action, which has been clinically shown to play a role in the progression of urinary symptoms. Q-Urol also promotes general prostate health. For men with urinary symptoms associated with BPH who also display prostate inflammation symptoms associated with prostatitis, Q-Urol offers a clinically proven option to address pelvic and genital discomfort as well as promote prostate health.
What is CPPS?
CPPS, also referred to as Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, is the term used for unexplained and persistent pain in the pelvic region. CPPS is distinguished from prostatitis, however these conditions commonly overlap.
How should you use Q-Urol?
We recommend one to two tablets taken twice per day with meals. If this is successful, many people can then take maintenance doses of fewer tablets per day. If the patient has no symptom improvement after two to three months, the product is unlikely to help him and other options should be discussed with a healthcare professional.
How long will it take for Q-Urol to work?
Some people notice improvement after the first few doses. Others find that they must take it for two to three months to see maximum benefit.
Are there any contraindications to using Q-Urol?
There is a theoretical risk that use of quercetin (which is found in Q-Urol) will interfere with the action of quinolone antibiotics (e.g. Cipro®, Floxin®, Levaquin®). Therefore, don't take these antibiotics with Q-Urol and consult your physician.
What side effects have you seen?
Q-Urol is generally well tolerated by most users. Some users have reported mild nausea if taken on an empty stomach or slight tingling in the extremities shortly after their first dose.
Q-Urol has helped me, but I still have urinary symptoms.
Some men find that Q-Urol is more effective for their pain than for their urinary symptoms. We have found that combining Q-Urol with an alpha blocker (e.g. FloMax® or another Farr Labs’ product, BP-Qmax) is a helpful approach for these men.
Can I combine Q-Urol with other natural products?
We don't recommend it. The product is specifically designed to be the most effective prostate supplement available and already contains the best natural compounds that have proven support for prostate health and integrity. There is no way of knowing how ingredients in other nutritional supplements or treatments will interact with Q-Urol. Even if the other products are considered "safe", they may interfere with the absorption of Q-Urol, or block its actions in other ways.
Q-Urol has helped me feel better. Do I have to keep taking it?
We recommend staying on a maintenance dose of at least one tablet per day for an additional two to three months. Some users find they can stop taking the product without recurrence of symptoms while others find they need to stay on the maintenance or even full dose to remain symptom-free.
Would you recommend taking all these ingredients separately?
Theoretically you should derive as much benefit from taking all these preparations separately, but unfortunately many brands do not have adequate batch-to-batch quality control such that one bottle works one month but another bottle doesn't work the next month. Other quercetin brands commonly combine quercetin with vitamin C. The high doses of vitamin C delivered with the quercetin can severely acidify the urine, making symptoms worse in some men. Most importantly, taking all these preparations separately will cost much more than taking only Q-Urol.
Is there any published medical literature to support the use of Q-Urol?
