Summary

It appears that cranberry juice may be effective in preventing the recurrence of urinary tract infections, but not in treating urinary tract infections. It is generally well tolerated and relatively free of adverse effects. There have been case reports of coadministration of cranberry juice and warfarin resulting in bleeding events, but this potential interaction remains to be conclusively established.

Key Words: Vaccinium macrocarpon; prophylaxis; urinary tract infection; kidney stones.
