No one can take zero medicine in his or her life-spam. Actually, we are surrounded by lots of medicines. However, just like a coin has two sides, medicines can also bring us damages by taking them incorrect. Therefore, we should know some knowledge of medicines. Maybe you are quite familiar with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory and diuretics, but do you know what the difference between a diuretic and an anti-inflammatory are. 

The definitions of the diuretic and the anti-inflammatory are different
 According to the new edition of Oxford Dictionary, diuretic is medicine that cause an increase in the flow of the urine. The anti-inflammatory is medicine that used to reduce inflammation. 
The functions of them are different
 Based on the definition of the diuretic, it is east to know that this medicine is used for patients who have urine problems. By consulting doctors, patients with urine symptoms, such as frequent urination, urgent urination, weak flow of urine, cannot empty the bladder and dribbling, are more often to take them. Therefore, the function the diuretic is relieving stranguria and improving urine problems. As for the anti-inflammatory, this herbal pill is used to eliminate the inflammation which is a localized physical condition in which part of the body become reddened, swollen, hot and often painful, especially as a reaction to injure or infection. Therefore, the clearing away heat and toxic materials is what anti-inflammatory has.
The diseases that the two medicines can cure are different
 After knowing the definitions and the functions of them, it is quite easy to know what kinds of diseases that the two medicines can cure for. For diuretic, it is more frequently used on diseases that can bring urine problems like bladder infection, cystitis, IC, UTI and so on. And the anti-inflammatory is more frequently used for diseases like orchitis, mumps, epididymitis, pelvic inflammatory disease or inflammation after surgery. 
Although the two have so many differences, they can be used together. In fact, a better effect can be gained by combining them together. As I know that one herbal medicine - Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is the one that has the two functions together. This herbal medicine can eradicate disease like prostatitis or bladder infection radically. Take the prostatitis for example. Since Prostatitis is commonly caused by bacterial infection and also can bring the urine problem to patients, so the effect will be half less if taking the two separately. By combining the two together, prostatitis, generally speaking, can be radically cured within three months.
