This will turn your urine a bright orange color, so wear a pad so you don't stain your clothing. It works very well and greatly relieves the pain of the infection until the antibiotics can kick in.

I seem to have a lot of itching and after taking this Drug three times a day for three days that night I had a fast heart beat. A lot of burning when I urinate. The Itching started with my arms now it's all over my body.

This was my first UTI. Treatment will turn urine orange-red color, which is normal. I experienced some dizziness but it subsided after the first day. Only take for as long as you are on antibiotic, about 2 or 3 days, which worked very well for me.

I don't know what I would do without this medication. It works within half an hour for me. The orange urine doesn't bother me as long as the pain goes away! I have been using it for frequent urinary tract infections for over 15 years now. I have never had a side effect from it either.

For some odd reason my kidneys hurt like heck when I take it. So I had to either bear the urinary pain or the pain in my kidneys(which was worst than the urinary pain)

I got a sudden painful UTI and the doctor prescibed me this medication. He warned me that it would turn my urine dark orange/red, but I was still shocked at HOW orange/red it was. This medication is wonderful as it almost fully took away the pain and burning when urninating. I'm thankful this medication exists!

I was given this medication along with Macrobid for a bladder infection. I've had many, many, many bladder infections (even 2 kidney infections) and have never been prescribed 2 medications for it. I didn't know exactly what it was for, the doctor said it was to relieve the symptoms. After taking this for 3 days and reading about it, I don't think I'm going to continue it. Aside from the urine discoloration (which doesn't bother me), it has seemed to make it sting more in between urination. It doesn't sting when I go, but after I'm done, it stings worse. The antibiotic (Macrobid) by itself has worked just fine for me in the past for relieving the symptoms.

I get UTI's a couple of times a year. Sometimes they're so bad I clot and see blood. This really, really helps with the pain. Take your antibiotic to kill the infection, but take this to get rid of the pain. Nothing works this good or this fast! The only side effect I get is nausea...but I can never tell if it's because of the infection, my antibiotic or if it's this drug. Either way, this stuff is amazing at stopping that unbearable pain and the constant urge to go.
