Answer

Analgesics, Urinary

These agents are used to relieve burning, spasticity, and pain during voiding caused by UTIs.

Phenazopyridine (Azo-Standard, Pyridium, Baridium)

Phenazopyridine exerts local topical anesthetic or analgesic action on urinary mucosa. It is used for symptomatic relief of pain, burning, urgency, frequency, and other discomforts arising from irritation of the lower urinary tract mucosa caused by infection, trauma, surgery, endoscopic procedures, passage of sounds, or catheters. Its analgesic action may reduce or eliminate the need for systemic analgesics. When used concomitantly with antibiotics for UTI, phenazopyridine should not be used for longer than 2 days.
