Comment:
I was prescribed methenamine 1 gram twice a day for UTI prevention by my urologist. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me at all since I still got frequent UTIs while taking the drug. Worst of all, after taking methenamine with no problems for over six months, I suddenly developed sharp stomach pains/cramping and an itchy skin rash. Needless to say, I stopped using methenmine. Even so, it ... Show Full Comment

My husband had a stroke 7 years ago, and was suffering frequent, and severe, UTI's. Finally, he was put on this drug. He has been on it for at least 6 years consistently and the results have been great! No UTI's!

I was getting UTI"s so often that I was becoming resistant to antibiotic's. I ask my DR. what they used before antibiotics because this is common in older women.

Comment:
I started taking this medication since 4/23/13 and as of today's date, it seems to be working well. After another 2 months, I will let you know if any reoccurrence has happened on the UTI's. My problem is making sure I take it at the same time twice a day. Some days it is hard to jive the times. Even with a phone alarm for notification to take the pill.
