Hiprex offers protection against recurrent UTIs
Hiprex is an antibacterial that suppresses and eliminates the bacteria that can cause UTIs.
When you take a Hiprex tablet, the body breaks down the active ingredient (hexamine hippurate 1g/tablet). This agent goes to work when it reaches an acidic environment, like the bladder, killing the common bacteria that cause UTIs.
Hiprex should be started after you have finished treatment of your current UTI. It is important to let your Healthcare Professional know if you are taking any other treatments or over-the-counter medicines for your UTI as some medicines may lessen the effectiveness of Hiprex if taken at the same time. See the section on how to take Hiprex or ask your Healthcare Professional.
Using antibiotics long-term to protect against recurrent UTIs
Frequent use of antibiotics has the potential to make bacteria resistant, so alternatives for preventing recurrent UTIs are becoming important. If you are concerned about recurring UTIs, ask your Healthcare Professional if Hiprex is suitable for you.
The good news is there is no known treatment resistance developing with continuous use of Hiprex, so it can be taken long-term.
Please consult your Healthcare Professional to see if Hiprex is suitable for you.
