Important Information - TRUS Biopsy Antibiotics

Before you come for a TRUS biopsy your doctor will be give you a prescription for 6 antibiotic tablets.

To allow the antibiotics to have the greatest protective effect we recommend the following tablet regime:

  • 2 x tablets on the DAY OF BIOPSY* (one in the morning and one in the evening) Preferably not longer than 6 hours before your anticipated biopsy time. For a morning biopsy please take early morning no earlier than 6am, and for an afternoon appointment please take no earlier than 11am.
  • 2 x tablets DAY AFTER THE BIOPSY (one in the morning and one in the evening)
  • 2 x tablets THE SECOND DAY AFTER THE BIOPSY (again one in the morning and one in the evening)

* some doctors and pharmacists will advise to start the antibiotics the day before the biopsy. WE would prefer if you following the regime above (and the same as outlined in your information booklet) and start the day of biopsy. The reason is that the antibiotics work better closer to the time of the biopsy.

Thankyou
