Significantly eased discomfort while waiting for Cipro to take effect on a UTI. Be aware it will turn your urine reddish orange.

Comment:
I had a terrible allergic reaction. Fortunately, I was already on Prednisone for another problem and popped two Benadryls and rushed to the hospital. My eyes were swelling shut, as was my throat. I'm allergic to Sulfa but I was assured there was none in this drug. If you have allergies, be very wary of this drug.

Comment:
I've been treated for two urinary tract infections so far and these little pills have done NOTHING for me. Both times my doctor said it would help with the pain while the antibiotics did their job, but the pain was ever-present. All this medication did was turn my pee orange. The pain only dissipated after the infection was over.

I had a severe UTI. I was given Pyridium to ease the pain while waiting for the anti-biotics to start working. It started working quickly, was effective, and I did not have any negative side effects.

I tried using this once before and vomited quite a bit. This time I made sure to take with food. It still caused nausea, headache and diarrhea. I won't be taking this again.
