Recommend AZO Urinary Pain Relief®
AZO Urinary Pain Relief® contains phenazopyridine hydrochloride in either 95 mg or 97.5 mg tablets for fast, targeted, over-the-counter relief. When UTIs strike your patients, AZO Urinary Pain Relief® is a nonprescription option that can help ease suffering while they wait to see you and while waiting for their antibiotics to take effect.
Phenazopyridine HCl has been proven effective for the symptomatic relief of the pain, burning, urgency and frequency typically experienced with UTIs.1 Phenazopyridine HCl is excreted in the urine and exerts a topical analgesic effect on the mucosa of the urinary tract.2,3
The benefits of AZO Urinary Pain Relief® and AZO Urinary Pain Relief® Maximum Strength may be experienced as soon as 20 minutes and within 1 hour, the time in which phenazopyridine hydrochloride reaches the bladder as indicated by a change in urine color.4
In the U.S., phenazopyridine hydrochloride has been widely prescribed for symptomatic relief of urinary tract infections since 1914.1
