I know when I'm getting a bladder infection. I've lerned over the years to recognize it immediately. First I make an appointment with my Doc andthen go by Pyridium. Works like a charm....only one thing though, I have to double the dose to get the soonest effect.

It took the pain away, but I have a weak stomach, so I sometimes felt nausea when taking it even with food. Also, my left side of my upper back hurts, so I am wondering if it is a side effect on my kidney.

I used this drug last year with UTI and it was great. It really relieved the burning,and feeling of having to "go". But, I just used it again for the same reason and my heart has been racing. So I got on this web site to see if any problems with others. Well many of you have the same problem, it's in the trash right now.

It works wonderfully, no pain after the first pill, I just wish they could do something about the nausea. Even eating didn't help.

this medicine caused my wife to be re-admitted into the ER 4 hours after taking it. The doctors told us that if she would have waited another 30 minutes or so, she would have been dead. Allergies to the medicine can cause death.

I have suffered with chronic bladder pain for yrs. Have had several hydradilations. Never given this before. I was diagnosed with a UTI and my Dr. gave me this drug along with anti-biotics. I wish I could take it everyday.

i have had 2 UTI's inthe last month. The first antibiotic was leviquin. The second was sulpha. Pyridium was used in conjunction with both. Both time s I had a 3 day migraine headache- it has to be the pyridium. Never again.

I have never taken this medicine before. I took the first dose along with my antibiotic. After the first dose, in the AM or the next day I had to call the rescue since I had nausea, my hearbeat was increasing and I had cold sweat and felt I was going to faint. I tried the second dose and I had the same symptoms so before I end up in the ER with an allergic reaction, I stopped taking it. People with antecedents of allegies to other types of medications, should try it first and make sure you don't get a reaction.
