Urinary tract infections, although easily curable, can also be extremely painful. Pyridium, a prescription pain reliever, can ease the discomfort while you wait for the infection to clear.

According to the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse, people experiencing UTI symptoms schedule more than 8 million doctor appointments each year. Women in general are at a greater risk than men, as well as people who use catheters and those who have multiple sex partners.
Foreign bacteria, such as E. coli, can travel to your bladder through the urethra, causing the bladder to become inflamed. Left untreated, a UTI can develop into a kidney infection.
Pyridium turns urine red or orange. Coloured urine can stain fabric, but does not indicate a medical problem. Use a panty liner or white undergarments that can be bleached while on this medication.
Pyridium only masks pain---it is not a cure for a urinary tract infection. If you experience pain or discomfort when urinating, seek medical attention for proper diagnosis and antibiotics.
