Hi everyone. So glad I have found this helpful website.
After many episodes of cystitis I read an article in the newspaper recommending Hiprex. My consultant gave me a private percription for it as my surgery wouldn't, due to its cost even though it is NHS endorsed.
Has anybody found this helps? I find I am now becoming resistant to antibiotics and that worries me.
Apparently you do not become resistant to Hiprex.
Many thanks. Nell

Hi Nell,

I am currently on Hiprex and it is working well for me.  I had long term antibiotics and then stopped those at the beginning of this year and have been taking Hiprex only.  There was a problem with supply a few weeks ago and I was without them for a couple of weeks; after five days I noticed the horrible old symptoms returning and had to go back on antibiotics for a spell.  Hiprex is now available again and I'm relying on that only.  It helps the Hiprex to work well if you take it with vitamin C.

I'm on Hiprex too and have been for about four months. I find it really helpful.
