Does cranberry juice make you constipated

Hi sisters,
I have been on cipro for 4 UTI and also supplemented with pure cranberry juice (recommended for UTI). The next day I did not have the regular bowel movements even with the colace. Has any one had similar experience?
Also has anyone tried the cranberry extract in capsules. Do they have a constipating effec?

Re: Does cranberry juice make you constipated

I've never heard of cranberry juice being constipating, but different foods affect people in different ways. I would think it's more likely the medication constpating you. Can you take additional colace? Earlyon, I had to take 3-4 a day, then I gradually reduced it. Check with your doc before increasing the dose though. Foods that really helped me with the constipation were grapefruit, prune and pineaple - but I also drank lots of cran juice too, for the urinary tract. Good luck finding the right combination!

I would not think cranberry juice could constipate you. I think it is the Cipro. My friend is taking that & is having the same problem. The prunes fixed her right up so maybe you can eat a few of them each day? Also warm prune or apple juice seems to help too. Best wishes.

Tytania and Seabutterfly,
thank you both for your replies and suggestions. I never thought that the cipro might be the culprit for my problem.
Will try the prunes, grapefruit and the pine apple. I always wellcome and first try natural remedies.

Thanks again

Welcome. I am still eating prunes because I found they work for me. Oh one other thing about the Cipro, we found out the hard way you are not supposed to drink milk with it (or dairy really). Hope it works for you!

Liquorice works well too.
