    I prescribe ural sachets, which alkalinizes the urine. I also use antibiotics to treat the urinary infection, which controls the urinary urgency and frequency. Patients can also use cranberry tablets or cranberry juice. They also need to drink 1.5, at least 1.5 litres of water a day.
    The best treatment for urinary tract infections is to isolate the offending organism on a dip-sticked urine, and to then treat the organism based on which antibiotic it is sensitive to.
