A 21-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

i got a uti about a day ago, and i'm taking an antibiotic at the moment. i bought some cranberry pills, an urine pain relief for the burning, and a probiotic to avoid yeast infection. would any of these interact with each other?

Med interaction: hello ~ no you are on high ground with those 3. The most important one is the antibiotic so please take the whole course of that thanks

Pyridium is commonly used for the pain and discomfort associated with a bladder infection. It is absolutely not a waste of money if patient is very uncomfortable.

The cranberry is a waste of money. The probiotic is probably a waste of money. What is "an urine pain relief"? This is probably not needed. Usual dose for routine med for acute cystitis is 1 to three days. Longer is not often needed or desirable. You forgot to name the "antibiotic". That matters.
