Cranberries have some effects on urinary tract infection. But the effect of food is limited, so only with other food or medicine can it work well. Cipro is broad-spectrum antibiotic, with side effects. And it doesn't work on patients with drug resistance. Patients with cystitis, combined with frequent and urgent urination, can take herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory pills. The natural materials will not cause drug resistance and side effects. Drinking a lot of water can prevent cystitis and prostatitis, but it has little effects on treating them.
