Side Effects
my right finger between my pinky and middle finger got swollen and red and itchy. this has happened every time i've taken this medication. i dont know why.

Additional Thoughts
well, this does really help with burning and pain, but the urgency and frequency are still there...which isnt as bad as having the burning and pain. anyway, i would reccommend to anyone with a UTI and i will take this again if i ever get another UTI.
