    Replacement for Mandelamine


    Has anyone been able to find a replacement for Mandelamine that is still being sold? At least in our area Mandelamine & Hiprex have been discontinued. I read other threads on here that address the issue of the drug being discontined but I couldn't find anything regarding a replacement that is still being made.

    My husband has had chronic UTI's since the med was stopped so any advice for a similar treatment would be greatly appreciated.

    We live in Carlsbad Ca and just started taking hiprex and were able to get it at the local CVS on El Camino Real just last week. Hope that helps!!!!!

    try generic methenamine mandelate. however, research is inconclusive that is reduces incidence of uti. plus i read that the breakdown products, formaldehyde, could be long term irritating to the bladder and a possible cause of difficult to diagnose pelvic pain syndromes such as interstitial cystitis.

    i stopped it months ago. so far, none worse for the wear

    will start again if needed, but i need to see a worsening in uti's 1st.

    Thanks for the feedback. I will call CVS in my area and see if they can get it. We usually use Walgreens and I had also checked with Rite Aid but neither of them could get the Hiprex. Thanks for the tips....and the advice. Shawna

    I have been able to get Hiprex but was recently told that a generic is no longer available and would result in brand name prices being charged. I may look online when my supply runs low, maybe
