Thanks for the query.
While cranberry extract (cranpac) has been shown to be useful in preventing urinary infections; it is successful only in some of the patients who use it.
There are more effective ways to prevent UTI like long term low dose antibiotic prophylaxis which you can discuss with your physician.
There is no harm in trying cran pac but all medications should necessarily be taken under the supervision of your treating doctor.
Hope this helps
Good luck.
