National Institute for Health Research
Year of publication

RCT (n=240) found methenamine is not inferior to current standard care (daily 50/100mg nitrofurantoin, 100mg trimethoprim or 250mg cefalexin) in preventing recurrent UTI’s. Results suggest antimicrobial resistance is proportionally higher in women taking prophylactic antibiotics.
