Medication is clearing up the UTI quickly. But after taking 3 capsules in 2 days I have an awful headache, stiff neck, dizziness, dry mouth, lethargy, and now I feel like I'm coming down with the flu. I feel worse as this second day progresses. Did the medication work for the urinary infection? YES. But at what expense to my body? I will not take it again.

I hope it works yet UTI is so easy to get over & over. Want to try more natural stuff and see how it works instead of ... Show Full Comment
