    eat dried cranberries. they really do prevent. they don't allow the bacteria to stick to the bladder walls so are flushed out. whole cranberry juice not cocktail, which is mostly water. or cranberry sauce. sorry you feel so crappy.

      UTI man I feel for you. Those nights suck for sure. I just got through a bad bought myself. I went to the Dr. and swear I would be better off going to a veterinarian then the ones around here. Just because we are paralyzed every one thinks we could not possibly feel the pain. Anyway I finally got him to give me some antibiotics. I then went to an urologist and found out I have a kidney stone. But according to him it is in a place I can’t feel anyway so have no reason for the insurance company to pay for removing it.

      I find drinking plenty of fluids and making sure I am not constipated helps. But the nights of severe pain I have not answer just watch TV and try to get through it. Good luck I don’t mean to be a drag but needed to vent anyway thanks

        The only way I manage to stay UTI free is by taking a daily antibiotic.

          I have been on a daily antibiotic for 8 months and have not had a UTI. Prior to being on the antibiotic I had a UTI pretty much every month for a couple of years.

            Keep Bactrim/Septra on-hand. I self-medicate when I feel the symptoms coming. I'll be halfway done w/ a 3-day treatment by the time lab tests come back... figure I misdiagnose occasionally, but this has worked for me for many years.

            Those of you who take antibiotics daily, you're running a risk at building up a resistance to the drug. Sooner or later it'll quit working.

                daily antibiotic is a bad idea........im like scott i keep cipro in my drawer have for 20 years, when i feel one coming on i blast 500 mg of cipro 2x day for max 3 days, its gone. i get one every 2-5 yrs.
                i dont ever gtet lab work,.
                to op, the "SUPPS" your on are hard on your kidneys, u should double your water intake while on. also stop while u r on antibiotics.

                  Recipes for avoiding UTI's


                  I intermittent cath so here is mine:

                  Besides drinking water/cranberry juice and making sure cath area is prepped with betadine, I supplement with:

                  2 Visoquid Acid (50/50) x2 daily (morning and bedtime)
                  2 Green Source multivitamins x2 daily (morning and bedtime)
                  2 CVS Brand Max Cranberry x2 daily (morning and bedtime)
                  1 1000 mg time release Vitamin C (morning)

                  Visoquid acid can be up'd to 4x a day when people feel one coming on.

                  Thank God I have been near UTI free for two whole years.
                  And the truth shall set you free.

                    Visoquid acid? Even google isn't helping with that one.

                    I find that whenever I use supplements I get more sediment. It's a catch-22.

                      It's the generic Uroquid acid except CVS wont carry the generic.

                      Available by prescription.

                        Bactrim is an antibiotic. Septra is the same thing, different name.

                        Who wants you to take antibiotics daily?

                        If you're getting a UTI every month, you need to figure out why. It may be that you need to change some habits or use different (i.e. more clean) methods of cathing/whatever.

                            Uroquid and other mandelamine salts is appropriate for PREVENTION (although there is VERY weak scientific evidence) and is never an appropriate drug to use for an acute symptomatic UTI. Similarly, cranberries (which ONLY help to prevent e. coli UTIs and not those from other bacteria) and D-Mannose are only appropriate for preventive use, and never for treatment of an acute infection.

                            Self-treatment with antibiotics (obtained how????) is a fools mission. You are very likely to have the wrong antibiotic, which can result only in making the bacteria more resistant to that antibiotic in the future.

                            Preventive antibiotics are also very likely to just cause you to develop resistant strains of bacteria over time, and to make that specific antibiotic (Septra, Cipro, Levaquin, Macrodantin, etc. etc. ) totally useless for you in the future, in addition to the drug side effects and combinations that chronic antibiotic use may cause.

                            If you have a symptomatic UTI, with fever, chills, malaise, flank pain, AD, etc. etc, you need to get to your physician or ER. You are killing off kidney tissues more likely than not, and putting off treatment over time will cause deterioration of your kidney function.

                              I have to totally disagree with everything you said the first is mandelmine it works and there are plenty of people here that tell YOU this all the time, so please start to listen.

                              We obtain drugs by not taking the full 10 day supply or will fill a script with another refill, we cannot wait for a doctor to tell us we have an infection when we know we have one.

                              You have to understand we know are bodies you are great at answering some things and way off on others and this is one of those sorry.
