Anyone had any success with this? I've tried it for a few days but not noticed any change in symptoms.

It's a supplement that should only be taken for two weeks at a time as it's very heavy on the liver. I know it works for some but for others it's not been successful.

Hello Firefly

How are you? long time since have seen you post. 

UVA URSI did not work for me, found I have to resort to the old stand by 'Bi carb', though of course again have to watch the liver reaction.

Regards Kate

works very well for me.  however, i do an intense treatment.
make sure urine is very alkaline using dipstick.  alkalise quickly with bicarb, lemon juice etc.  i take 15-20 drops of uu or so every hour and ease off once it subsides.  you cannot take uu for long.

Uva ursi is my saviour when I have a definite UTI. I take it 15 drops in a small amount of water and it tends to get my symptoms fading over the course of a day . Occasionally I take a dose after sex if I am worried that I may end up with a UTI
