                      I would not combine drugs in an bladder wash, irrigation, or instillation without having your pharmacist check for any adverse interactions between the ingredients.

                        I switched to the Gentamicin after using Theracyn daily for the past several years and wound up catching a UTI from hell with a strain of staph bacteria that was not affected by Gentamicin. I have a SP catheter and plugged the catheter after instilling while showering and dressing - approx. 30 minutes. I wonder if that's long enough? I haven't decided if I'm going to try again or not.

                          Gentamicin instillations are not proven effective for someone with a foley or super pubic ALL studies that have had success are for those that IC

                          As for the other question above I mix my evening gentamicin with Hydro cleanse

                            In this article by a urologist on the use of gentamicin bladder irrigation for the prevention of symptomatic urinary tract infections in neurogenic bladder patients there is a reference to 2 small studies, with positive results for all types of bladder management including indwelling catheters https://www.urotoday.com/video-lectu...e-cameron.html

                            and here's a link to University of Michigan urology dept instructions for instillation in indwelling catheters
                            http://www.med.umich.edu/1libr/urology/BladderInstillationGentamicinIndwelling.pdf
                            so there must be some support and evidence for using with indwelling catheters
