A friend sent me an email once about home remedies and it mentioned Alka Seltzer as a cure for UTIs.
At the time I was suffering from UTIs once a month or so and I would always end up at the urgent care after suffering for hours. I would have to endure the waiting room, the embarassing doctor visit, a trip to the pharmacy and then more time to wait for the drug to kick in. All the while I was in agonizing pain! These were very painful, time consuming and expensive episodes.
So one day, instead of feeling the UTI coming on and dreading the hours to follow, I took Alka Seltzer right away. Boy, did it work fast! Within 1 hour I didn't even remember I was starting to get a UTI!
I've had enough UTIs in my time to know the warning signs, so now when I feel one coming on I take Alka Seltzer right away. Works every time.
This is not going to work if you already have a full-blown UTI. You need to see a doctor in that case - especially if you see blood in your urine.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I have lupus, which causes frequent headaches, muscle/joint pain, acid reflux, and digestive difficulties, all of which I prefer to treat with Alka-Seltzer whenever possible. I've found that it works literally within minutes if I take it at the first sign of those symptoms, and now it's a rare occasion when I feel that I need my expensive, addictive prescription pain medications. However, the flavor is best described as "lemon-lime soda with soap powder mixed in." And the taste is impossible to get rid of. I strongly recommend buying the "original" flavor, which tastes awful as well, but at least it doesn't linger.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
