Before our summer vacation to Europe, I decided to purchase these cranberry pills from Amazon as a precaution since cranberry juice is not common in Europe. Thankfully, I didn't need them during our trip; however, I did get to use them last week due to work stress.
In summary, the pills may (?) be good for daily maintenance and prevention (or in my case, being somewhere where cranberries are not so common), but if you need to address the UT symptoms immediately, go with the cranberry juice route as after 3 days of suffering while taking these AZO pills, I finally went to the store and grabbed 3 huge bottles of cranberry juice as the pills did not help me as fast as the juice could. The next morning my painful symptoms were reduced by 50%, and the day after, I was almost pain free.
From my experience, drinking cranberry juice is still the best way to eliminate painful UT symptoms and maintain great UT health.
I have successfully taken cranberry supplements for my urinary tract health for many years in the past. Recently I decided to start taking them again and thought why not try a trusted brand such as azo.? However, these supplements did not help at all after a few days of trying them. On the days I would use them consistently I did not notice any Improvement at all.
I thought I might prefer chewable to the capsules I usually get - will not make that mistake again. I'm forcing myself to finish this bottle out of stubbornness, but every morning it's an ordeal. The taste is awful, and because they're big and chewy, there's no getting around the time it takes to get it down. They also take up a lot of space in my pill box and make the other pills kinda moist and crumbly. And cranberry doesn't do anything for pain relief, so I didn't rate it for that.
I don't really know if they work or not because I just can't swallow them. They are not gummies, they turn into a sour, dead grass tasting sticky mess. They stick to your mouth so the awful taste goes everywhere. And it lingers seems like at least an hour.
I noticed an improvement right away but the taste/texture is really gross! The flavor says “berrylicious” but it’s more like a very tart cherry flavor. The texture is a little funny and feels weird in my mouth. The after taste is honestly the worst part! After I finish this bottle, I don’t think I’ll buy again.
This is the second time I ordered these pills the first were ok, but the second bottle when I opened it, had a really rotten smell to it, I have taken cranberry pills plenty of times and never once have they had a rotten smell to them. I will not be ordering these again.
