I used to have recurring bladder infections and take cranberry pills and haven't had one since. They have worked 100%! I have been on them for literally years. I buy mine at Costco but started out buying them at Walgreens or Wal-Mart.

My sister uses D-Mannose every day and it's helped her tremendously.

D-mannose daily and Rephresh Pro B daily. It's a probiotic that eliminated all my utis & bladder infections within less than 2 weeks, which I was having weekly for almost a year. It may be a ph issue. Stay away from antibiotics if you can. I was also taking cranberry powder daily, but it made no difference whatsoever in my case. Good luck to you!

YESCranberry pills are great. Drinking the cranberry juice is preventative as well if at least 8 oz day.

Cranberry Juice 8 oz daily is recommended. Not cran cocktail……..pure cranberry juice.

@suzanne2, That's good to know and great they've helped your UTI's . I do keep cranberry juice and crasins on hand but a secret treat is Sonic's cranberry limeade…not as sweet as a cherry lime…doubt it does a thing for my bladder but is a tasty delight!

@fiesty76 The drink sounds tasty! A good treat on a Summer day.I am partial to cranberries. Always put crasins on my oatmeal.

I too have frequent UTIs. Thanks so much everyone for the many suggestions and links! I have had so many antibiotics over the years (I’m 73), so this is an issue too. Therefore, I have developed sensitivities and some allergies to most antibiotics.
