Also make sure you drink plenty of water to keep  your kidneys/bladder flushed out.

Yes, I've taken those cranberry capsules.  I didn't have any problems with them, but you might want to talk to your doctor about it.  I tend to have recurring UTI's, which are much worse when I don't stay hydrated and keep my kidneys flushed, so if you're doing that, hopefully, you won't have an issue with infections.
