Azo in Mexico

I purchased AZO in Mexico and was told it was a combination of a sulphur based antibiotics plus pain reliever for UTI. Does this actually contain antibiotics or is it just like the US brand Azo, an over the counter pain reliever for UTI? ## Hello, Kirsten! How are you? I'ms sorry, but I can't find any information on Azo from Mexico. Is there anything written on the packaging? I realize it may be in Spanish, but that's fine, if you can post back with anything it says. The U.S. formulation of Azo in the standard formulation is listed as containing Phenazopyridine, it is used to alleviate the pain associated with UTIs. The typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include dizziness, headache, indigestion and itchy skin. ## Until I can get back to the U.S. I need ...

Phenazopyridine 200 mg

The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.

Phenazopyridine and Z-pack (Azithromycin)

If I take BOTH, will that most likely cure my UTI? Should I take an antibiotic too? ## Has your doctor told you to take them both? The z pack is an antibiotic. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. ## Z-Pack is indeed an antibiotic and the entire course should be taken, as with any antibiotic. If not you're more like to have the infection come back in short order. The other medication, phenazopyridine is used to help the pain associated with urination. This medication can turn your urine (more often than not) orange as well as your feces (hasn't happened to me but has been reported to do this). So in answer to you question to should you take both: Absolutely take the antibiotic. Not doing s...

Phenazopyridine 100 mg availability

ls Phenazopyridine 100mg available over the counter or do you have to get a Dr. to write a script for it? And is there an over the counter medication that's like Phenazopyridine? ## Yes, there is a version that is available over the counter. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and discolored urine. However, you should be aware that this will treat the pain of a urinary tract infection, but will not do anything to eradicate the infection itself. Are you on any other medications? Is there anything else I can help with?

Old Phenazopyridine medication

Around 7pm today I started experiencing UTI like symptoms. This time last year, 2/15/16, I was also treated for a UTI and was prescribed phenazopyridine and sulfamethoxazole. I was waiting an hour while drinking glasses and glasses of water before I knew it was a UTI. Once I determined it was, I had one of each of my old prescriptions, until I can go pick up a new one tomorrow morning. However, the phenazopyridine doesn't seem to be relieving my symptoms, and the pain when I urinate is getting worse. My urine is also yellow, not orange. Even from the beginning to now. Is it because the prescription is just over a year old? Any suggestion? I'm in quite a bit of pain. ## It is hard to say, medications do lose efficacy with time, but it could also be due to a different strain of ba...

Phenazopyridine kidney infection

I recently had a UTI and was given Bactrim for three days and felt better. It's been almost a week and I suddenly have the symptoms back long with lower back pain. Seeing that it is almost 7:30 pm on a Sunday, I will have to wait until tomorrow morning to call and go in and see the doctor. The doctor was pleased that I stopped taking Phenazopyridine two days before going in for the urine culture to detect the UTI. Will Phenazopyridine interfere with diagnostics for a kidney infection? I would love to be able to relieve some of my symptoms before morning, but I will not if it means they will not get the proper results for the diagnostics they need.
