Admittedly the 1st course was a Boots own brand and was taken over 72 hours - not 48. But I did the Cymalon one properly. Cystitis is still there but not nearly as bad - should I take a 3rd course or just drink cranberry juice and hope that its on its way out?

Go for the cranberry juice.

Are you sure it hasn't developed into UTI needing antibiotics?

would the symptoms have eased off if it were a uti? It still stings a little - but not the teeth curling stinging that I had at the beginning of the week.

Don't suffer any more, get to the docs and get some antibiotics. Drink lots of water in the meantime too.

go and see your doctor i hardly ever take antib.s but have found i usually need them for cystitis-once had it and it developed into a kidney infection which is very painful
