  • I went the ER once for a UTI b/c it was a weekend. They gave me the appropriate meds for it and sent me on my way. I did have to wait for about 3 hours but it was better than waiting the entire weekend. Hope you feel better soon!

  • Uristat or Cystex ( sold OTC at most pharmacies) and watered down cranberry juice-

  • Drinks water, blueberry juice and cranberry. DO NOT drink the stuff with sugar. The bateria thats causing the UTI will feed off of the sugar and make it worse. Eat some fresh or frozen blueberry, lots of antioxidants. Take cranberry pills. You can get some over the counter pain pills produced by AZO, safeway does carry them. I would also go to a health food center, ask them about UTI preventatives and current issues. I take some stuff called UTI Vibrance to keep them away, and it works great!! But you need help ASAP. Good luck and sorry your hurting

  • Drink water with a teaspoon of baking soda in it once a day. It tastes terrible, but it works.
