Azo-Cranberry (cranberry) for Urinary Tract Infection: “While Azo-Cranberry is good for preventing UTI's, I am concerned about the side effects. I had been taking Azo daily for two years and experiencing dizziness, foggy brain, nerve pain, headaches, tinnitus, and of course extreme tiredness. I thought at first it was just part of menopause but finally went to the doctor, then neurologist with no relief or suggestions as to why I felt so bad. I finally stopped taking Azo and within a week I felt so much better. So no more Azo Cranberry for me. Some one needs to warn women about these side effects!”

Ellura (cranberry) for Urinary Tract Infection: “Ellura is the real deal! I was getting UTIs every 3 weeks for years. I have tried every cranberry supplement out there and had zero success. My doctor then recommended ellura for me and my life has now been forever changed.”

Azo-Cranberry (cranberry) for Urinary Tract Infection: “The first time I ever took this I did not expect any side effects whatsoever from all the reading I did about it. So I was really surprised when I felt incredible fatigue the whole rest of the day along with terrible muscle pain throughout. A few days later I tried it again and the same thing happened. Now, after two months I tried it again and the same exact side effects. I can't find anyone else on the Internet that has mentioned this overwhelming fatigue and pain side effect of this AZO cranberry. I am not sure why it happened but I now believe that it's because of it. Hope this helps someone who is looking for the same thing I was.”

Azo-Cranberry (cranberry) for Urinary Incontinence: “Since I have been taking cranberry I have had a quicker period where my urine infection has cleared up and the time period between me having to use the bathroom has improved and I am able to hold in my urine long enough to make it to the the bathroom. I am very happy with this form of treatment. I am not on to try herbal medicines but this one truly works.”

Azo-Cranberry (cranberry) for Urinary Tract Infection: “I began taking this while having a very bad UTI and was taking to prevent UTI's; however, after reading the comments about reactions, I am stopping immediately. I thought the extreme fatigue, dizziness, headaches, gastro problems and muscle pain were maybe carry-overs from the three UTI's I had in a row since I don't normally have these problems I have listed on a recurring basis. I have many medical problems but not these which are happening very often. I also began staying awake all night and when I take my BP it will be 200+/100+ so I take another BP pill and am able to sleep. I don't know whether this could be related as I didn't see anyone mention it.”

Azo-Cranberry (cranberry) for Urinary Tract Infection: “I brought these Azo-cranberry to help prevent UTI but after two days of taking them I started to have headache and dizzy spells and feeling unwell. Stopped them and it cleared up. Tried them a week later and the very same thing. I take no other medications. Sad because I was truly excited about taking them. Hope this helps some one else.”

PAIN IN BACK · Taken for less than 1 month December 1, 2020

Azo-Cranberry (cranberry) for Urinary Tract Infection: “I had been having a dull pain on my right side of my back. Severe nausea, dizziness, sore throat, bad taste in mouth, confusion, foggy thinking and anxiety. Well after 5 days of suffering I got a COVID TEST which it came back NEGATIVE! So I don't have insurance therefore I prayed and instantly I thought about a UTI, I keep AZO pills on hand and took them immediately cause I was hurting real bad and in less that 10 minutes all that pain subsided! Glory to God...they worked a miracle!!! Still see a doctor though....BUT THEY REALLY WORK!!”

Azo-Cranberry (cranberry) for Urinary Tract Infection: “I started taking Azo hoping to keep my UTI's at a minimal. I have had upper abdominal pain, pain in my back on both sides and burning when I urinate. I thought I had a UTI and went to the doctor. No UTI. I have stopped taking this after reading the side effects. Pills went into garbage.”

Azo-Cranberry (cranberry) for Urinary Tract Infection: “I took two of these when I could feel the first twinges of a UTI and within 20 minutes, I had a headache, tiredness, muscle and joint aches, and a sore throat. I had been completely fine all day before this. I will not be using AZO products anymore, as I think I may be allergic to something in them.”

For Urinary Tract Infection: “With Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, acute urinary retention is possible, and I self-catheterise an average of twice a day for that reason. This makes urinary infections more likely, and previously, I used to get infections requiring antibiotics. Since taking these morning and night, I have had no further problems. Even if my urine turns cloudy, it seems to clear itself very quickly. Cranberry concentrate works very well for me.”
