FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: HIPREX

User Comments:


For Prevention of Bladder infection “I am Coeliac so vigilant with diet. I have Urine retention (300ml). My specialist thought was contributing to my recurrent Urinary tract infections so started on Hiprex only last week 2xdaily along with Cranberry juice and a probiotic but have had a UTI for 4 weeks. Initially on antibiotics for two weeks prior to starting Hiprex for the UTI I have felt no improvement. I drink lots of water, no coffee, no dairy or gluten. How long it takes before I can expect Hiprex to start to have an effect?”

For Urinary Tract Infection “2 years ago I got my first ever UTI at 55yrs. I had 8 or 9 sets of varying Antibiotics nothing seemed to work. So GP placed me on Cirophlaxin 7 days & at the same time on Hiprex this year and told me to take Cranberry as well. Last 2 M/C/S tests have indicated that there are no significant bacteria detected. But I am worried about long term use and bone health as acidity adds to bone depletion as have been diagnosed with Osteopenia.”

For Kidney Infections “After becoming sexually active I began suffering recurrent UTI’s and bladder infections of which the only non-intravenous antibiotic I wasn’t resistant to was Macrodantin. However, this was only a short-term term solution and after collapsing and having a week-long stint in hospital from a kidney infection a specialist prescribed Hiprex. It has been 3 months since and all UTI-like symptoms have faded away and not returned. The only thing I have to fault is the stomach acid-like taste and it’s rather pricey but much, much better than being constantly in pain & discomfort. So far, so good!”

For Kidney Infections “I have had constant Kidney/UTI infections. The doctor has tried everything. He put me on a low dose antibiotic over a period of time, this worked for a while. Constantly, I would be on a double dose of antibiotics and after taking the course as directed and would have intercourse again the infection would come back. I’ve bathed and done all the right things but the infection would always come back. I have gone through early menopause and kidney/UTI infections are part of the course as your body starts having less hormones something we are not told. I went on a quest to find another alternative and tried Hiprex and haven’t looked back, I am very happy with the product Hiprex.”

For Bladder Infection “Seems to be working for me, but time will tell if it helps to prevent recurring infections, as like many, I am very susceptible to UTI’s. I have no antibiotic resistance that I know of, but I would rather not take them if I can avoid it! Re: concerns about formation of formaldehyde in the gut, that sounded scary to me too, but after a bit of reading I learned that formaldehyde does not accumulate in the body. The body metabolises it to formic acid, which acidifies the urine and kills the bugs (it is an antibacterial and often used as a preservative in food). That said, formaldehyde is a known carcinogen so I will be monitoring my use.”

For Bladder Infection “I have a lot of bacteria going on in my system all the time and the UTI’s are constant and horrendous. Like others have stated I just can’t be on antibiotics all the time so have been trying other things . D-mannose powder is wonderful but It’s quite expensive and when I’m really bad doesn’t always work . Just discovered the Hiprex tablets over the counter here in Australia at the Chemist. I looked it up on the net for information and how it works and didn’t feel really comfortable about the substance turning to formaldehyde in the gut “
