My mother had recurrent bladder infections. Her doctor put her on bactrim taken every other day (MWF). I also give her a high-dose cranberry supplement. She hasn't had another bladder infection since she began the bactrim a couple of years ago, so it appears to be working. Knock on wood!

My mom was also getting UTI's frequently. She was put on a daily dose of Macrodantin (antibiotic) as a profalactic. It has worked great so far. Try keeping a few bottles of water close by so she stays well hydrated. Good luck!

What helped my mom was a probiotic called rePhresh and a vaginal suppository that contained estrogen.
