Thread: Antibiotics directly in the Bladder?

  1. #1

    Antibiotics directly in the Bladder?

    You hear of Botox(topical) being applied directly into the bladder, Oxbutenin directly applied to bladder. Why not anti biotic doses to the bladder? A flush of nepsporin has been used for years to keep colinization down. Is there a great risk to administering Keflex, after culture and sensitivity, directly in the bladder through the cath?

    I had recurrent bladder infections many years ago and the spinal specialist at that time prescribed a bladder washout which consisted of Bactrim in a gel type form. It was injected into my bladder via a catheter. Didn't help my bladder infections but I believe it can be done.

    Antibiotics flushed in the bladder does occur but I am not sure of the exact use for them. It might be associated with an urological procedure is my guess.

    Well for a variety of reasons I gave it a shot. I figured I'll try a few small doses about 100mg, mixed with sterile solution, into the bladder for two days until the oral dose I'm taking reaches a theraputic level.

    This is really frustrating I am on the merry-go-round of anti biotics 10 days for a different strain now 14 days for another. I know others have had real struggles with constant Uti's and I don't want to be heading down that path. I have been injured 4 years and have had a grand total of three Uti's #2&3 this month.

    Any thoughts on this having a negative effect or being unhealthy please feel free to chime in.

    You should run a search for Vetericyn VF, Microcyn or Puracyn on this forum. Some of us have had amazing results using this as a bladder flush. I had uti's for 43 years since injury 45 years ago. I have been uti free since August 2010 using Vetericyn VF.

    Good luck.

    I have posted in the past that I have a sp tube in place and from time to time if I feel a uti coming on I have flushed with an antibiotic while waiting for the oral dose to take effect. After I give a urine sample and get a prescription I take one pill, Cipro, Keflex or what ever is prescribed and drop it into a large 1000 ml bottle of saline. After it dissolves I shake it up, fill a flush kit with it and shoot it in my bladder. I clamp it off and wait several minutes then release the clamp. I usually do this twice a day for the first few days till the oral dose takes effect.

    I second Millard's suggestion, and to help you along I am posting my standard introduction to Vetericyn and a couple of threads on Care Cure Community for you to read and study. Good Luck.

    Vetericyn is a proprietary formulation of oxychlorine compounds based upon the Microcyn® Technology platform. Vetericyn’s base ingredient, oxychlorine, is similar to that produced by healthy cells in the body. The ingredients in Vetericyn are Electrolyzed Water (H2OSodium Chloride (NaCISodium Hypochlorite (NaOCI& Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI)(0.003%).
    Vetericyn was originally developed for wound treatment. It is not an antibiotic. It may more properly be characterized as an antiseptic. Vetericyn has a safety profile comparable to saline (safety data available in a separate report), it is non-toxic and non-irritating while safe to use around eyes, nose and mouth. It contains no steroids or antibiotics and can be easily applied with no mixing or dilution required. Rinsing after use is not required. It is used in animals and humans. Vetericyn is the name of the product used for animals (tends to be less expensive than the product marketed for humans). The same product is used in humans and is called Puracyn in the United States and Dermacyn in many foreign countries.

    Many members of the Care Cure Community are using Vetericyn instilled in the bladder and retained there for a period of time and then drained. It is being used by those of us who manage our bladders with intermittent catheterization, supra pubic catheterization, and surgically altered bladders.
