If I take cranberry AZO shorty after i took Plan B , is it possible for the AZO to decrease the effectiveness or flush out the plan b?

No: AZO will not interfere with the effectiveness of AZO which is good for treating the symptoms of a UTI but does not treat the infection. If you think u might have a UTI you need to be seen for a urinalysis and possibly antibiotics. That would also be a good time to discuss a more reliable method of contraception. Hope this helps. Good luck. ...Read more

Assume : Assume that when you refer to going to the bathroom often, that you are referring to having bowel movements. Trying antibiotics that belong to others is not a good solution. I don't know the cause of your symptoms or if you have crohn's disease. The main symptoms of crohn's disease include abdominal pain that is crampy, pain with bowel movements, liquid diarrhea, loss of appetite and weight loss. Additionally there can be fever and fatigue. You could also experience constipation, bleeding from the rectum, blood in bowel movements and tracts through the skin near the rectum which can drain pus or stool. Severe abdominal pain should be evaluated quickly. ...Read more

Is it safe to take azo cranberry pills for a uti/bladder infection while breastfeeding a 7 week old?

Is it safe to take azo cranberry pills for a uti/bladder infection while breastfeeding a 7 week old?

Safe for baby but...: Cranberry has always been controversial, but from recent research we know for sure it does not prevent or treat UTI. The "azo" component is phenazypyridine, a bladder anesthetic: it somewhat numbs the inside of the bladder and helps reduce symptoms, but doesn't cure UTI. You need to have a proper antibiotic by prescription. In any case, it won't harm your baby. ...Read more
