Hiprex For UTI 

Hiprex (methenamine hippurate) is indicated for preventing recurrent urinary tract infection UTI. It belongs to the class of urinary anti-infective medications, which stop the growth and fight bacterias in the urine and bladder.  

Hiprex medication includes an ingredient that helps acidify the urine, enabling methenamine hippurate to turn into formaldehyde and ammonia to destroy bacteria. It is only intended for bacterial infection of UTI and not for other bacterial and viral infections. Unnecessary use of this medicine can lead to a decrease in effectiveness when needed in the future. Before initiating this medication, disclose to your doctor your medical history, especially kidney problems, liver problems, and dehydration. 

Hiprex and Vitamin C 

Before starting this medication, a health care professional will test the PH level of your urine to see if it’s acidic enough, or you may need to increase the level. If necessary, your doctor may recommend you to take vitamin c, for it can help your urine be more acidic; cranberry juice may also help. You may be also be advised to limit foods that make your urine less acidic such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes. Alkalinizing medicines such as antacids and sodium bicarbonate may also be recommended to be avoided to help attain greater acidity of urine.
