I was prescribed methenamine 1 gram twice a day for UTI prevention by my urologist. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me at all since I still got frequent UTIs while taking the drug. Worst of all, after taking methenamine with no problems for over six months, I suddenly developed sharp stomach pains/cramping and an itchy skin rash. Needless to say, I stopped using methenmine. Even so, it took...

UTIs started to occur monthly. My urologist put me on low dose antibiotic for 3 months then on methenamine plus Vitamin C and cranberry supplements. Now UTI-free for over a year. The relief is worth the nasty taste of the pills.

I found the tablet really hard to swallow so I crush it between to spoons and mix with a drop of milk.

It works! Years of UTIs and becoming antibiotic resistant or allergic led me to this approach. One year free from UTIs. Because I become resistant to meds so easily, I cut the pills in half and take half dosages...which are also easier to swallow. They are not easy to get down even then, but certainly worth the inconvenience and occasional gagging.

I’m 24 and have been struggling with IC and chronic UTIs for about 5 years now. Hiprex saves me from my latest bout of UTIs (4 in 3 months). I am hesitant to incur the long term effects but so far so good, although it does cause slight burning right after I take the tablet I find if I am not super hydrated. Thank god for this.
