I am not sure if you are treating a burning sensation or a feeling of pressure, but I take Cystex to help with the feeling that my bladder is always full or that it is twitching. It doesn't turn your urine any color, and I don't know if it gets rid of a burning sensation. There are 2 medications in it, and one of them is similar to aspirin, so if you can't take aspirin, this wouldn't be a good choice for you. I live in the US and can only find this in Walgreens and Medco (a website for mail-order medications). It is OTC. I also take Elmiron and Elavil, but sometimes I need Cystex for breakthrough pain/discomfort.

Hi Taria I had no idea it was taken off the market, what about pyridium it has a orange type color but it helps with the pain yet it stains everything that is the major problem with this medication.. I use to take pyridium, vesicare, elmiron,amitryptaline at night and still come in for the 6 weeks bladder installations in between to help- the doc use to give me syringes filled with lidicane that would be inserted v--- ginally and it would help some. Hope some of the information helped you some, hopefully you can try this method... does this condition cause problems walking for anyone I am having a time lately with this issue... I am trying not to give up!!! vtech10
