aside from taking azo an OTC pill, I found this on the web….hope it helps…I know it says for women, but I think It would help you too….
If a urine culture indicates that you have a UTI, your doctor will probably prescribe antibiotics. In addition to taking the medication, here's what you can do to relieve symptoms and prevent future recurrences.

Fix yourself a baking soda cocktail. "At the first sign of symptoms, mix half a teaspoon of baking soda in an eight-ounce glass of water and drink it," says Kristene E. Whitmore, M.D., chief of urology and director of the Incontinence Center at Graduate Hospital in Philadelphia. The baking soda raises the pH (acid-base balance) of irritating, acidic urine.

Drink water, on the hour. Drink one glass of water every hour for eight hours, continues Dr. Whitmore.

"Drinking a lot of fluids will increase urine flow," explains Dr. Workowski. "This will wash out the bacteria that are attempting to adhere to the cells lining your urethra. Drinking plenty of water will also help dilute and flush out the substances that are causing the irritation. Drink enough water so that your urine is clear. Aim for at least eight or ten glasses of water a day."

"Hydration is the best thing that you can do for a UTI," adds Dr. Whitmore. "Drinking water is fashionable, it's good for you and women I treat say that it's more effective than drug treatment."

Carry a bike bottle with you. So suggests Jean Kallhoff, advanced registered nurse practitioner at the Urology Clinic at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle. "It's handy, it's easy to carry and it reminds women to drink water throughout the day."

Reach for d-mannose juice. "According to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, d-mannose juice can prevent bacteria from sticking to cells that line the urinary tract," says Dr. Workowski.

"Plenty of anecdotal evidence says that d-mannose juice works," adds Dr. Whitmore. "I know it works for my patients."

    Baking soda and OJ is new to me … never heard it just the cranberry juice … you may want to look for the 100% juice and not the 10% stuff with lots of sugar. Its usually in the supermarket natural/green foods section. it's about 6 bucks but you dilute it since it's stronger than the sugary from concentrate stuff that you would typically buy off the shelf … much better for you all around

    Cleartract pills and Cleartract Standard from the pharmacy should do the trick – they're usually near the Tylenol and PMS stuff on a bottom shelf. I take about 6 pills for the first does with a FULL glass of water… wait as long as you can (like an hour) before you pee, and it should do the trick. Your pee will be BRIGHT orange from the pills.

    Cleartract juice usually has sugar, and not nearly enough cranberry to do the trick, but you're on the right track.

    Cleartract Juice is the way to go. Make sure the juice has more than 10% real juice. I heard OJ makes it worse because of the citrus. Stay away from caffeine also.
