How safe is HIPREX?2
Today 19:37stirling

Hi,
I am almost constantly suffering from a uti, it's been going on for years. I've had over 20 courses of antibiotics but they never really shift anything. Two years ago I had an antibiotic resistant strain of e coli, this year it was Strep B throughout the year and now I've got enterococcus! I don't understand. In constant burning pain and chained to the loo. Urologists are absolutely hopeless.
I cried at hospital today and the nurse suggested I just take hiprex everyday. I took it for a while but got scared about the fact that it turns into formaldehyde in the bladder.

Surely if formaldehyde is carcinogenic and we're warmed not to breathe it in, how about ingesting it?

I've heard women have been on it for years so it must be safe, right?

Thank you
