If you suffer from recurring UTI's, you'll want to read this....

If you've ever had a UTI (urinary tract infection), you know how painful it can be. I've only had a few infections in my lifetime but I have several friends who experience UTI's quite frequently. Unfortunately, the only way to treat a UTI is to take an antibiotic prescribed only by your doctor.

But there is now an over-the-counter product called Cystex that you can take to help alleviate your painful symptoms until you can get in to see your doctor. It can also be used as a preventative measure to help lower your chances of recurring UTI's.

Physician and pharmacist-recommended Cystex® Urinary Pain Relief Tablets is the only over-the-counter (OTC) medication that has a dual-action formula to help manage urinary tract infections (UTIs) while waiting to see a doctor. Unlike other drug store medicines, Cystex® helps to relieve the pain and burning associated with a urinary tract infection (UTI) while also inhibiting the progression of the infection with an antibacterial. It is the only OTC urinary pain relief medicine to combine a key pain-fighting analgesic, sodium salicylate, with an effective antibacterial agent, methenamine, to help stop the pain and progression of a urinary tract infection (UTI).

Board-certified urologist, Dr. Elizabeth Kavaler, author of “A Seat on the Aisle, Please! The Essential Guide to Urinary Tract Problems in Women” has teamed up with Cystex to provide helpful information, as well as answer any questions you have, about UTI's and overall bladder health in the form of a video series, called Know Your Bladder Better. In these informative videos, Dr Kavaler addresses several issues that most people aren't aware of, such as cranberry juice only being effective in the prevention of UTI's and not as a treatment and that squatting, instead of sitting, when urinating can contribute to the develoment of a UTI.

The Cystex site also has an area where you can ask Dr Kavaler a specific question that may not have been addressed already. Just visit the Ask the Urologist page and submit your question....easy as that!

You can buy Cystex at many retailers, drug and grocery stores throughout the US, as well as online, at http://www.drugstore.com/ and http://www.amazon.com/

The generous people at Cystex have offered to send one lucky winner their very own box of Cystex Urinary Pain Relief Tablets!

*Disclaimer: I have not used this product personally, as I do not experience recurrent UTI's. However, in the event that I were to develop a UTI, it's a product I would not hesitate to buy until I could get in to see my doctor.

This was a way different post. I drink cranberry juice when this ever happens. When I was PG I drank it all of the time so I would not have them.

For someone with a putrid, rancid, decrepit bladder ... this was some good info!

This could not have come at a more perfect time. I don't get them a lot, and they aren't painful, I just have to pee constantly throughout the night, and I think I might be getting another one. :(

I have used this and it works awesome. After having so many pregnancies my badder just does not work as well :) It is a great product.

Jennifer said...

Thank GOD. I've had a UTI two times, and they've happened on THE WEEKEND. No ding dang doctor is in the office on the weekend to offer prescriptions! Sheesh! Finally. I pray I'll never have to use this stuff, but hey, it's nice to have a security blanket. ;-)

I'm blessed to have never experienced this! Sounds like a great product for those who need it, though!

Michele said...

We've only ever tried drinking cranberry juice to do whatever it does - raises the acidity of the urine and kills bacteria, maybe? Anyway, it doesn't work too well. My 18yod has always gotten utis several times a year. I can't wait to try this remedy.

I'm also adding myself to your army of minions.

I would enter, but since I am nursing even if I got one I would be afraid to take anything. I am weird I know.

Fortunately I have never suffered from this but good to know!

Thanks for the info. I do have UTIs & I just wrote down the name of this to go buy because sure enough, I'll get one at Disney.

I had a UTI and even though this helped a little, my UTI came back. I tried another natural product called Clearmax that helped quite a bit and cleared up everything.

I have taken cranberry pills to help build my bladder's defenses. I have also gotten those at home test if you have a UTI kits!

Cranberry juice is the only prevention I've ever heard of.

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
