Well thankfully I don`t have a UTI where I would have to try this product. As much as I love to try new things, I`m hoping I never have to try this -- No offense Cystex! So I did take the liberty of doing some research on the product to inform you what others thought about the product. Well on Amazon.com I found 5 out ofÂ 5 star ratings on a variety of their products. That should tell you something right there. Want to see for yourself? Just go here and scroll through each product or here`s a few I pulled from randomly:
January 25, 2011This review is from: Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex 7.6 fl.oz (Health and Beauty)I know this is a fairly new product, so I feel obliged to let other UTI-sufferers know that it WORKS. At least, it did for me. I went through three different antibiotics and wasted countless doctor appointments trying to combat the source of my UTI. The antibiotics would create problems with my renal system and merely ensure another UTI was soon to follow. The ONLY thing that stopped the cycle was Cystex Liquid Cranberry. The recommended dose when you`re experiencing symptoms is 2 tablespoons daily - one in the morning, and one in the evening. Doing this for a mere two days ended my UTI cycle. Now, I keep a bottle on hand and take a single dose whenever I even suspect that fresh symptoms are coming on. I have not experienced a UTI since. And because the ingredients are natural, it`s no big deal if I take it on an overly paranoid hunch. I have also gotten into the habit of taking a dose after intercourse, just to flush out my urinary tract. It`s been my miracle brew. If you feel the onset of a UTI and are looking for a first line of action other than antibiotics, this may be your answer. It was for me.
Â Problem Solved,
August 3, 2010Amazon Verified Purchase(What`s this?)This review is from: Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex 7.6 fl.oz (Health and Beauty)For over a year I have suffered with swollen feet and water retention problems. I have tried cranberry juice and pills and received some relief, but this is much easier to take and seems to take care of the problem. Good product!
Â better than azo for quick pain relief,See, like I said, quite a variety of positive responses on this product. Enough for me to honestly say that if I ever do have an experience with a UTI that I will give it first shot, no questions asked! Now as an added bonus for me I was sent an additional Ladies Room Emergency Health and Beauty Gift Pack, which contains some female essentials filled inside a convenient toiletries purse, perfect to bring on the go. Items included are a compact mirror, a travel brush, a makeup kit, and an emergency PMS kit. Now not only is this practical, but it would be great as a prank/gag gift! I loved how they threw in the extra Hershey Kiss with the items. I mean let`s be honest, when it`s "my time of the month" I`m acting like a lunatic when it comes to chocolate. Good looking out there!Â Also, the make up and brush are no cheaply made products. Their high quality name brands from Sephora! I`m just amazed because usually little kits like this are made of cheap products, not quality. So needless to say I`m very happy with my experience with the Cystex products and goody bag I was sent. I`m impressed with a company having multiple positive ratings on multiple products. Therefore I have no other choice but to recommend Cystex any time you encounter a UTI!
October 10, 2010This review is from: Cystex Antibacterial & Analgesic Urinary Pain Relief Tablets, 100-pack (Health and Beauty)I cant speak to Cystex`s ability to prevent UTIs, as I dont use it as a preventitive (which is why i only gave it 4 stars-maybe that wasnt fair, but, oh well), but when you need really fast relief of UTI symptoms, definately go with this product! Azo cranberry is great as a preventative measure, and that is what I use to prevent infections. But when I stop taking it for a long time, and get a UTI, Azo`s pain reliever does not relieve the pain as quickly as Cystex does. It works really really fast! I cant remember exactly how long it took, but it was definately somewhere around 20 minutes.
