Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Uti: Urinary tract infections can be very serious especially during pregnancy. Because of hormonal changes and dilatation of the ureters during pregnancy there is an increased risk of kidney infections. She should have a urine culture and appropriate antibiotics started. She should be followed closely by her obstetrician.

Could you take amoxicillin with cystex please I really need to know now?

Could you take amoxicillin with cystex please I really need to know now?

UTI Pain: Yes, you can take Amoxicillin and cystex together. Cystex is just for the pain of a urinary tract infection. Treating the infection with an appropriate antibiotic should get rid of your pain, too, once it has a chance to work. The good news is that uncomplicated UTIs tend to resolve very quickly.

I got some cystex tablets. Do these really work and are you supposed to take them everyday?

I got some cystex tablets. Do these really work and are you supposed to take them everyday?

Depend...: Cystex can ease the symptoms of UTI, but can not rid UTI-related bacteria since it is not an antibiotic. So, how to use it will depend on what the purpose for taking it, symptomatic relief? To put all the related things for good care together correctly, follow instructions in articles listed in http://formefirst. Com/onDealSickness. Html & http://formefirst. Com/onUTI. Html.

What do you recommend if I bought some cystex tablets. Do these really work and are you supposed to take them everyday?

UTI treatment: Contain Methenamine which is antibacterial agent plus Sodium Salicilate (similar to aspirin) which helps to relieve pain & incidentally is non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication & antipyretic. Only over the counter urinary antibacterial available in USA. 2 tablets 4x/day for UTI or 2 at night as a preventative. Better see Dr. To discuss & be treated if necessary. Other antibiotics > effective

Can I take cystex pills to pass a meth drug test if yes how many of them?

Can I take cystex pills to pass a meth drug test if yes how many of them?

No: The color change that occurs with taking cystex would not have an impact on the test to detect amphetamines in your sample. However, the color change itself may be enough to have the testers more closely scrutinize you with other tests. Barring sudden and unanticipated reversal by the federal government of it's "war on drugs", the best option is to get help and get clean. Easier said than done.

Can I take cystex and azo at the same time for more severe pain from uti?

Can I take cystex and azo at the same time for more severe pain from uti?

Yes, but...: Both may be used simultaneously but just potentially ease UTI-related irritative voiding symptoms, yet would not kill offending bacteria. Of course, don't use them overjealously beyond their recommended doses. If not symptomatically improved in 3 days, seek evaluation & counseling so to get right diagnosis for right care. How to?

Can you take extra strength tylenol (acetaminophen) while taking cystex plus?

Can you take extra strength tylenol (acetaminophen) while taking cystex plus?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) and cystex: There should not be a problem taking both Tylenol (acetaminophen) and cystex plus. Try adding more liquids to your daily intake, or having a glass of cranberry juice at bedtime, which will do much of what the cystex is intended to do.

Can I take cystex for urinary tract infection?

Can I take cystex for urinary tract infection?

No: You can take cystex to relieve the symptoms of a urinary tract infection but not necessarily the cause. It is designed to decrease symptoms UNTIL you get a chance to see your primary medical doctor. This medication is similar to pyridium, (phenazopyridine) for symptomatic relief, but does not turn your urine orange.

Can I take an OTC cystex with an antibiotic cephalexin for a uti?

Can I take an OTC cystex with an antibiotic cephalexin for a uti?

Yes: That's fine to take both. As a male however, you should get evaluated by a urologist because UTI in males is not that common, especially in your age group. Make sure you get a Urinalysis to confirm UTI.

I have an antibiotic for the UTI, but was told by my doctor that I can take AZO for pain relief. I have Cystex already at home, can I take that?

I have an antibiotic for the UTI, but was told by my doctor that I can take AZO for pain relief. I have Cystex already at home, can I take that?

Here are some. ..: For most uncomplicated UTIs in adult females, an effective antibiotics alone should suffice to improve and rid UTI-related voiding symptoms in 1-3 days. AZO is an add-on for helping relieve severe burning, but optional as long as being tolerable. Regarding Cystex, its effectiveness has been sworn by some but murky by others. So, you may use Cystex and see. If not better in 2-3 days, see doc timely
