My wife is diagnosed with infection of urinary tract. She has annoying symptoms such as pain, burning and discomfort. Her doctor said beside therapy to treat this infection, some antibiotics, she needs something more. He said Pyridium is good choice for her now, to relieve symptoms. I would like to know more about this drug, and how she should use it.

Pyridium is known as Phenazopyridine and is used to relieve pain, and all those symptoms that your wife complaining about. It is not antibiotic, and it will not cure infection. That is why her doctor prescribed her another drug to treat primary disease. Pyridium is best taken with food or after eating a meal or a snack to lessen stomach upset. Dose of this medicine is different for different patients. Make her just follow her doctor’s orders or the directions on the label. For her symptoms, adults and teenagers use 200 milligrams of Pyridium three times a day, for children dose is based on body weight. If it happens so she misses the dose, she should take it as soon as she remembers. If that is almost time dose, skip missed dose and go back to her regular dosing schedule. Important is that she never doubles doses. If she notices any of side effects such as bloody urine, difficult or painful urination, or anything like that, became worst while she uses Pyridium, check that with her doctor.
