Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly-even though the product was never been advertised for this use.

Alka-Selter does NOT work for UTI - give me a break! First know cause then cure can be cranberry juice to probiotics to antibiotics. Know the reason you have UTI first - then take proper action

The most effective cure I tried is cranberry juice.
Works for me!

I've had good luck with the Alka Seltzer cure myself. Only works if you take it right at the onset of symptoms, though. (I don't understand why it works either; maybe the Alka Seltzer is somehow able to kill the bacteria?)
It has worked for me every time.

I have had 4 UTI's since I heard about this treatment, and the symptoms have gone away within 30 minutes of taking it every time. I always repeat it 4 hrs later, just in case. A doctor told me it would take 8 gallons of cranberry juice to cure a UTI. This takes two tabs.
I can't belive it, but it works!

I've tried everything from pure unsweetened cranberry juice (didn't work and was GROSS!) to tons of high-quality probiotics (which got expensive and didn't work). I've always had to resort to antibiotics until now. A friend told me about Alka Seltzer and it sounded too good to be true, but it worked!
I am THRILLED to not have had to suffer another round of antibiotics!

Next time i have a UTI I'll give this a whirl. I usually try to buy the generic cranberry juice since its not mixed with grape and others like Ocean Spray. It works but usually takes a day or more and several glasses. So if this really works in 30 minutes or so, I'll definitely try it.
Worked For me

I have been suffering for a long time with UTI's and this really works. It's not the only method I have used but certainly the fastest. I would suggest anyone who get them regularly try this tip.
Takes about an hour for me, but works!

Alka-seltzer is a freakin' miracle. I also follow it up with a huge glass of green tea (several bags) and a bunch of honey in it. I drink that while i'm in the bathtub taking an epsom salt (sea salt works too) bath. A UTI is the most annoying sensation I have ever felt. Drink lots of water and tea!!!!
Amamzing! IT WORKED!

I woke up and instantly felt the symptoms and knew I had another UTI. Luckily, my mother told me about alka seltzer. I dissolved 2 tablets and only 15 minutes later the symptoms started to dissapear. Thank God! I am so bad with antibiotics.
It's a miricle in my eyes.

has worked for me every time and does not require any trips to the doctor or antibiotics! I think the key is to take the Alka-Seltzer right away and take it a few more times during the day. Relieves the pain immediately.
