HI, I went to the doctor and got the big Cipro pill, but am scared to take it. I am IBS-D also, and don't want to be off work, because I can't leave home... I went to the health food store and bought Super Cranactin, by Solaray. This is my first day, I am going to take 4 each day, plus cranberry juice and lots of water for 4 more days, and go back and get tested to see if it is better. I have had the UTI for a week now. I don't know if this is the right thing to do for sure, as I have only had one other case years ago. I talked to a nurse friend and she thought I would be ok trying it before taking the Cipro. Trial and error, I guess. My symtoms are not unbearable at this point. I am usually healthy, if I stay on Heathers diet, so I am afraid the Cipro will strip all of the good bacteria out of my system. Maybe I am overreacting, but I have been so sick with IBS in the past, that I don't want to take a chance with the antibiotic wrecking my stomach........I don't know if this will help, but this is what I am doing for now. Good luck

Everything somehow always works out for the best.
