  • Seriously? I don't think so. Might feel like it's gone but then again the majority of people would be legally intoxicated if they drank an entire six pack.

  • hmmm I just googled and it said that it would make you pee more and move the infection out... You could try.. I always drink cranberry juice if I think I am starting one and it always helps...

  • It may knock you out, but not the bladder infection.
    What will do it is cranberry juice. Find the one with the highest juice content, I use the juice made for cooking. Drink a good 12 oz before bed, then do it again the next day until you feel better, then continue for at least one day longer.

  • It can actually CAUSE an UTI, or make it worse. Cranberry juice, water and yogurt are good alternatives.

  • false, alcohol usually makes mine worse...I try to avoid drinking anything but juice and water when I have a bladder infection.

  • False. It will probably make it worse.
