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.

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.
@suzanne2, That is what I had for breakfast this morning! Like minds!!
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.
Are you diabetic? Have you used D-Monnose?
I don't know if I have ever asked this question before on this forum but, has anyone ever heard of the Urovax or Uromune vaccine for UTI's?
I don't know. It is a simple sugar and I think the dosage without infection is half a teaspoon a day and 1 teaspoon a day if there is infection. There is a question section for the product on Amazon where you can ask. I found the reviews very helpful on how to use, too. Even though I don't get infections anymore, I take 1 teaspoon daily in 4 oz water at noon just to be on the safe side. I use the product that comes in a white bag with orange person on it. It was life changing for me.
Do you know if this D-Manose interacts with prescription meds
D-Mannose does not have any drug interactions. I don't think that diabetics can use it though.
