The drug Pyridium consists of the active ingredient Phenazopyridine, which belongs to the drugs known as urinary tract analgesics (alleviating pain). Phenazopyridine is a pain reliever effective in the lower part of your urinary tract, including the bladder and urethra. This medication is used to ease pain, burning sensation, increased urge to urinate and increased urination. These symptoms usually appear due to any injury, infection, surgery, catheter, or other conditions irritating or inflaming the lower urinary tract. This medication can cause serious side effects; thus, it should only be taken on a doctor’s recommendation.
This medication is useful in alleviating the symptoms caused by inflammation or irritation of the urinary tract, including pain, burning, and the need to urinate urgently or often. This drug does not target the cause of urinary irritation; however, it can help ease the symptoms while other treatments take effect. Pyridium works as a painkiller to soothe the lining of the urinary tract.
Phenazopyridine can interfere with certain laboratory tests (including urine tests for kidney function, bilirubin, and sugar levels), possibly causing false test results. Make sure laboratory personnel, and all your doctors know you use this drug.
