Phenazopyridine And Z-pack (azithromycin)


If I take BOTH, will that most likely cure my UTI? Should I take an antibiotic too?

Has your doctor told you to take them both? The z pack is an antibiotic. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea.

Z-Pack is indeed an antibiotic and the entire course should be taken, as with any antibiotic. If not you're more like to have the infection come back in short order. The other medication, phenazopyridine is used to help the pain associated with urination. This medication can turn your urine (more often than not) orange as well as your feces (hasn't happened to me but has been reported to do this). So in answer to you question to should you take both: Absolutely take the antibiotic. Not doing so can, in the long run, potentially lead to long term kidney problems. The other medication? Depends on how much pain you have with urination. It really helps the pain from spasms (creating the frequent urge to urinate) and makes the burning almost non-existent.

Also add to your daily regimen several times a day actually. Drink tons of cranberry juice. If you don't like cranberry juice drink great cranberry orange cranberry. As long as it is in the Cranberry family. Good luck. Cranberry juice does help a lot.
