Amneal Pyridum - Gluten Free?

Is Amneal's Pyridium (Phenazopyridine) gluten free? ## Confirming that the pills marked PY 1 contain Phenazopyridine 100 mg (NDC 65162-681). Inactive ingredients are listed as: - Carnauba Wax - Croscarmellose Sodium - Hypromelloses - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Polyethylene Glycol 1000 - Povidone - Corn Starch Based on the list above, they don't appear to contain gluten-based ingredients.

pyridium 200mg and cipro 250 not working...

I went to the emergency clinic and determined I have severe UTI. I was prescribed phenazopyridine 200mg and cipro 250mg for a three day treatment.

The usual antibiotic used for UTIs is Nitrofurantoin, however, it may not have been appropriate for the bacteria they found causing your infection. The typical antibiotic side effects, as reported by the FDA, may possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Has the Phenazopyridine helped, at all?

viginal itchiness

Hi doctor I'm having a big problem with my vigina its so itchy and I've got unbearable abdominal pains I did consult my gynae he said I have uterus infection and prescribed Antibiotics but now the problem doesn't go away. I also noticed that I have white discharge and my vigina is red! What could be wrong here Thanks ## Hello, Zimmie! How are you? If you have itching, redness and a white discharge, after finishing the antibiotics, there's a chance that they may have caused a yeast infection. You need to go see the gynecologist, again, so they can check it out for you and prescribe the proper medication, if necessary. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you I went to the chemist and they prescribed Canex V, Probiotics and Pyridium but I've noticed this me...
