    My granddaughter who is 6 just started taking Suprax yesterday for a UTI, and has already broke out in hives. I picked her up for my daughter today and was told by the Boys and Girls staff that she had broke out and was itching. I called my daughter and told her that she should stop giving it to her immediately. I gave her Benadryl to combat her hives.

    My 2 1/2 year old daughter was prescribed this for a urinary tract infection. Her syptoms seemed to decrease the first 3 days, but before she had even finished the medication we had to go back to the doctor because her symptoms were back full force! It was also incredibly expensive, and I have relatively good insurance.
