Bladder burning OTC pills?

Discussion in 'Fibromyalgia Main Forum' started by fibrobutterfly, May 12, 2006.

  1. Does cystex or the others OTC turn the urine bright yellow like the pyridium that makes such a mess? Do the OTC for urine burning help as much as the pyridium?

    Some do turn it red. I don't think cystex does, I could be wrong. Most do. I find they don't help as much as pyridium.

    I also use Uristate and Azo, both turn it bright orange. Man that stuff works like a miracle. But be careful, it has warnings about being linked bladder cancer.

    You mentioned about a link to bladder cancer with the uristat? I didn't know. Thanks for the alert. I take it often for burning... due to Interstital Cystitis.
    What are we to do? We need relief.

    You could try the IC Network message board, it's very helpful & lots of us there have FMS/CFS:
