I don't have personal clinical experience with it, but know that many in home care especially have used it. It is not available as a commercial product yet, so it is only available from a compounding pharmacy. And you must be very careful with any alcohol product in a polyurethane catheter as those catheter manufacturers do not have any instructions for its use yet.
