  • Anyone use D-Mannose?

    Even though I take regular medicines, I also like to take natural supplements too. D-Mannose can help get rid of a uti naturally. I am more interested in using it prophylactically before and after sex but not sure how many to take. Right now I take macrobid after sex prophylactically but want to try this as a natural uti preventer instead. For a uti the directions say 3 capsules 5x/day, for maintenance it says 1 capsule 3x/day. For sex??? I used 2 before, 2 after and 2 at bedtime. Any of you have a regimen you follow?

    It binds to any e-coli taking it away from the bladder wall and then you just urinate it out. Its kinda like the idea behind cranberry but safe for ICers.

    Gelnique for frequency/urgency - works great
    Macrobid after sex
    Prilosec, continuous birth control pills
    synthroid .088mg, mucinex-d, restasis

    Supplements: Desert Harvest Aloe vera, Cysta-q, prelief, magnesium and calcium, Vit D, flaxseed oil

    Diag Mild IC Jan 11 but have had symptoms for 25 years. Also have GERD, TMJ, IBS-C, chronic dry eye syndrome, hashimotos thyroiditis, non-allergic rhinitis.
