Methenamine is an antibacterial medicine used to deal with or avoid bladder infections in adults and children at least 6 years old. Methenamine might also be used for purposes not detailed in this medicine overview. Tell your physician if you use other medications or have other clinical problems or allergies. If methenamine is risk-free to use if you've ever had liver troubles, ask a medical professional or pharmacist. When your urine has a low pH and is acidic, methenamine works best. You can measure your pH levels at home making use of urine test strips bought from a drug store. Your doctor might sometimes test your urine to make certain an infection has cleared. Your medical professional might also recommend other medicines. Missing doses could make your infection immune to medication. Methenamine will not deal with a viral infection. Do not use methenamine to treat any problem that has not been examined by your physician. Take the medicine as soon as you can, yet avoid the missed dosage if it is nearly time for your next dosage.
