Answer

Analgesics, Urinary

Urinary analgesics, such as phenazopyridine, can help to treat the symptoms of dysuria.

Phenazopyridine

Phenazopyridine is compatible with antibacterial therapy and can help to relieve pain and discomfort before antibacterial therapy controls infection. It is used for symptomatic relief of pain, burning, urgency, frequency, and other discomfort arising from irritation of the lower urinary tract mucosa caused by infection, trauma, surgery, endoscopic procedures, or passage of sounds or catheters. The analgesic action may reduce or eliminate the need for systemic analgesics or narcotics.
