I have not had a UTI for years and then all of a sudden two days ago I felt like I was getting one…urgency and burning when I urinate. I did not want to go the antibiotic route unless I really had to so after some online research I decided to go to Walmart and buy Cystex Cranberry Liquid Supplement along with 100% Cranberry juice. I started taking it yesterday. The directions state to take up to two tablespoons once a day, I took two right away and then about 12 hours later took one more tablespoon and then another one this morning. In addition I have been drinking lots of water and the cranberry juice and I can honestly say it’s much, much better. It seems to be working. I know that you really can’t let a UTI go and I won’t. If it continues like it is I don’t think I will have to go to the doctor. I think the key is catching very early on, which I think I did. It’s worth a try, especially early on. And unlike some liquid supplements the taste is not bad at all!
I should add that I take Aleve on a daily basis so I’ve just continued that and that has helped with the little bit of pain I had when this first started.
