The medication took away the burning pain and bladder spasms for me within two hours of taking. Relief started maybe an hour after. Urine is dark orange but this was explained to me so it wasnt a worry. I have slight stomach pain but nothing compared to the UTI pain. I take no other medications and never have (and Im 47) so maybe my system handles it better.

This medicine did help with the lower back pain associated with my UTI, but it also gave me horrible headaches and severe nausea. I am not going to finish taking it....just hoping the antibiotics kick in soon.

Directions say to take it with milk, so I did. DON'T take on an empty stomach, because that will cause nausea. Worked well, could tell when it was starting to wear off because UTI-related burning would start to come back. It took away my discomfort while the antibiotic was taking effect.

Will turn your urine dark orange, and stains underwear. Only helped somewhat after I urinated a few time after taking. You just don't tai it and it aces pain away, its not a narcotic. I had god awful nausea after taking. Literally 10 mins after taking my stomach was killing and i was soooo nauseated. It would take a good hour or two before it went away, and was EVERYTIME I took the med.
