Cranberry juice can be helpful in treating mild UTIs. However, for antibiotic treatment, a prescription is required.

For a UTI you need an antibiotic, which cannot be purchased over the counter. Best to see your GP/family doctor.

Is super saver meds a good company?

I've been using Super Saver Meds and have always receivedthe items I paid for. Contrary to what I have been reading about low dosages, I feel the meds are better and stronger. I'm not one to take antiobiotics quickly, but when I was sick and took some of their antibiotics, I got well so quick, I couldn't believe it. I could imagine some meds could get lost in the mail, but I've always gotten mine. The US is one of the few countries who require a prescription for antibiotics. Other countries have them over the counter, but they are a big money maker in the US. I can't afford health insurance and appreciate being able to have meds on hand for UTI's or whatever I need. The problem I do have is that I joined the affiliate program and now when I sold the required meds and have an opportunity to collect over $100.00 in free merchandise, I am not hearing from them and their affiliate code is incorrect and tried cheating me. I was told they would correct it and I should order,but I can't figure out how to order without paying. Those who didn't get their meds, need to contact their credit card company within the time period and stop payment if they didn't get their order.
