  • The cran-grape juice, unless the number one ingredient is cranberry is too watered down. Look for a juice with cranberry as #1 ingredient.

    I don't think you can drink too much. Pee too much, probably, though! ;-)

  • I have never heard of cran grape juice poisoning. Carrot juice is another story.

    Check out the label on your juice though. You might find you are drinking something closer to fruit punch which wouldn't have quite as much benefits as some pure, sour cranberry juice.

  • I used to get them every time I had sex bc I went so long in between.
    It helps to pee afterwards. if you can.

  • No Cran-grape, it has to be pure cranberry juice and clear liquids.

  • Well I drink it ALOT because I love the taste. I just put cranberries on my page background, lol. But if your stomach hurts I would hold off. You dont have to drink a whole pitcher to make it work! A couple glasses of day should do it.

  • A nurse once told me that you can miss 100% cranberry with gingerale. It helps with UTI and it takes the bitter taste from the cranberry juice. I don't think you can OD on it, since I drank gallons of the stuff!

  • I believe there are cranberry pills in the vitamins section that have the same effects as liquid cranberries.
    I wish you well. My poor daughter has had 2 UTI's since giving birth 7 weeks ago and she's still in pain.

  • Cranberry juice does have a chemical that might cause kidney stones if you are prone to them. I am prone to kidney stones and it's on the list of things for me to avoid.
