If you suffer from recurring UTI's, you'll want to read this....

If you've ever had a UTI (urinary tract infection), you know how painful it can be. I've only had a few infections in my lifetime but I have several friends who experience UTI's quite frequently. Unfortunately, the only way to treat a UTI is to take an antibiotic prescribed only by your doctor.
But there is now an over-the-counter product called Cystex that you can take to help alleviate your painful symptoms until you can get in to see your doctor. It can also be used as a preventative measure to help lower your chances of recurring UTI's.
Physician and pharmacist-recommended Cystex® Urinary Pain Relief Tablets is the only over-the-counter (OTC) medication that has a dual-action formula to help manage urinary tract infections (UTIs) while waiting to see a doctor. Unlike other drug store medicines, Cystex® helps to relieve the pain and burning associated with a urinary tract infection (UTI) while also inhibiting the progression of the infection with an antibacterial. It is the only OTC urinary pain relief medicine to combine a key pain-fighting analgesic, sodium salicylate, with an effective antibacterial agent, methenamine, to help stop the pain and progression of a urinary tract infection (UTI).
Board-certified urologist, Dr. Elizabeth Kavaler, author of “A Seat on the Aisle, Please! The Essential Guide to Urinary Tract Problems in Women” has teamed up with Cystex to provide helpful information, as well as answer any questions you have, about UTI's and overall bladder health in the form of a video series, called Know Your Bladder Better. In these informative videos, Dr Kavaler addresses several issues that most people aren't aware of, such as cranberry juice only being effective in the prevention of UTI's and not as a treatment and that squatting, instead of sitting, when urinating can contribute to the develoment of a UTI.
The Cystex site also has an area where you can ask Dr Kavaler a specific question that may not have been addressed already. Just visit the Ask the Urologist page and submit your question....easy as that!
The generous people at Cystex have offered to send one lucky winner their very own box of Cystex Urinary Pain Relief Tablets!
