Reviews for Phenazopyridine

Sort by:

For Interstitial Cystitis: "I am a 57 yr old female, suffer from interstitial cystitis for the past 5 years. First and foremost DIET is key, no orange juice, grapefruit, spices, cranberries and cranberry juice is the worst for I.C sufferers. Cranberry is great for urinary tract infections but NOT for I.C, also Azo is NOT for I.C, it has cranberry in it. Only Uristat works for I.C, unless of course you are allergic to it or have stomach upset. Take 4 saltine crackers before taking, I have a very sensitive stomach and this works for me"

Pyridium (phenazopyridine) for Interstitial Cystitis: "This did nothing for the cramping and pain. In fact, I had horrible GI gas and stomach issues while taking it. I thought I had a stomach virus but when I stopped the Pyridium, the stomach distress went away."

For Dysuria: "I've been in pain for three days, and cannot get an appt. till next week so I went all out and bought cranberry juice, tablets, and this medicine. I felt no differently after taking it. And not even three hours later. I still had the pain and urgency. I woke up this morning, hoping it would have worked by now, to find my lower parts completely covered in a rash and it itched HORRIBLY. Apparently I'm allergic to the dyes or something. How could I have known? Be very careful before taking this product and make sure you are absolutely not allergic to anything on the list, it didn't work for me and it broke me out so badly that I can't even put underwear on. The rash wasn't the product's fault, but I am giving it a 1 for not helping the pain."

For Dysuria: "If you're experiencing pain during urination caused by a UTI, I recommend Uricalm Max! Works almost instantly. Just make sure to wear panty liners while using this medication. It will turn your urine bright orange and will stain anything it comes into contact with."

Uristat (phenazopyridine) for Interstitial Cystitis: "Doctor told me to take this uristat . super drug, I feel normal again. I can sleep longer, no real pain and the only side effect is urine is yellowish orange. But who cares about that if your rid of pain and spasms. Thank you doctor!"

For Dysuria: "Bought azo and it didn't work for me AT ALL. If anything it made it worse! It still burns when I pee and it's really painful and uncomfortable. The only difference this med made was changing the color of my urine to a dark orange looking color."

For Dysuria: "Was feeling awful during class, ran pharmacy on my free hour and bought some Azo the Urinary pain relief. Took it in the parking lot and drank some water. Right away it started working and my discomfort was gone. Only side effect was that my pee was a much darker color than normal but once the medicine was out of my body it went back to normal. I strongly recommend this to anyone who has frequent UTIs or to even have at home for an emergency"

Azo-Standard (phenazopyridine) for Dysuria: "My pee is obviously orange. I wore panty liners to prevent staining. Relieved the urgency and burning sensation however after my second dose on both dose I had excruciating episodes of kidney pain. Like instantly dropping to the floor, Not being able to do anything but cry for five to ten minutes until it was over. Nausea and hot flashes also. It served it's purpose but was definitely uncomfortable."

For Interstitial Cystitis: "I had my first near "kill-me-now" flare this afternoon. Posted about it on facebook and someone recommended AZO. I drove to the pharmacy in excruciating pain; I couldn't walk in so I made them get it for me at the pickup window. Downed 2 pills in the parking lot and by the time I got home 5 minutes later, glorious relief. Why did my urologist not tell me about this when I called him today? "

For Interstitial Cystitis: "I wish I had known about this medicine sooner! I have had IC all my adult life and as I approach 60 I’ve noticed that is has ramped up in the last year. I do not understand why health articles on IC and UTI’s do not recommend this product! It has helped so much and works quickly. I too will always have this on hand. The regular AZO where you can basically take cranberry juice through a pill, has now become a part of my daily regimen."

Azo Urinary Pain Relief (phenazopyridine) for Interstitial Cystitis: "I was having extreme pain, everyone said to get all the AZO bladder med stuff, but I also got this one. Turned out it was the only one that worked!!! But, it only lasted short-term and I had a severe case. It's a "until you get to the doctor" med. If you're resorting to these, you've got doctor worthy problems."

Pyridium (phenazopyridine) for Dysuria: "Did some, not enough, to relieve pain. I have pain because I have a ureter stent and am receiving radiation treatments to the pelvis -- both irritate the bladder and urinary track. I am searching for a similar drug to this. There must be something similar to this drug that helps alleviate the pain."

Uricalm (phenazopyridine) for Dysuria: "Just don't mistake Uricalm Intensive for Uricalm! I grabbed the box in a rush and when I got home phenazopyridine the ingredient that stops the burning and pain is not in the Intensive. "

For Dysuria: "It did alleviate my pain but not my urgency. The side effect is just about unbearable. I am partially incontinent due to the cancer treatment I am receiving. Just a drop of this bright orange dye on clothing, carpet or anywhere does permanent damage. Everyone gets a urine spot in their underwear occasionally. With this product get ready to spend lots on cleaning and ruined clothes."

Uricalm (phenazopyridine) for Dysuria: "This OTC medicine was the first to make me stop feeling any pain at all. One day I had to pull over during my commute to use the restroom at a Parkway rest stop. I commute over 60 miles to work every day, and have never had to stop. By 11 AM I was aware I had a UTI. On my way home I purchased this product with no idea what it could do, but my doctor couldn't see me for three more days. Within 30 minutes the constant pain was gone."

For Dysuria: "Well, let me tell you the bad news. Everything taste different. I ate a piece of cake and quickly spit it out. I'm itchy :/ and everything is orange.....everything. But I had severe kidney pain and it vanished over night. I took my medicine immediately after eating and did not notice any nausea. There's a slight itching in that "area," but that's common with a UTI. Hope this helps!"

For Interstitial Cystitis: "I have IC, and sometimes it is unbareable. I have prescription strength 200 mg tabs. I take one of those along with an antihistimine, and drink a big glass of water. Fight the urge to urinate for about an hour. Put heat on the bladder or take a hot bath. Finally when I urinate i feel relief. Still fight the urge and urinate at most once an hour. The flareup should calm. This medicine is literally a lifesaver for IC. I only take the medicine during a flareup, not a regular medication."

Azo-Standard (phenazopyridine) for Dysuria: "This medicine is a God send! I'm 20/F 140lbs and I frequently have pain at the very bottom of my urethra which Azo soothes every time. However it makes me quite nauseous if I don't take it right after eating and it makes my mouth taste strange and chemical-y. If you are considering taking this, make sure you stock up on black panties (or jammies) as it will stain everything."
