Yes..Dr.Ajitji. In view of acidic pH, and inflamatory pathology in uti soft tissue pain releaver is needed. You can give Phenazopyredine..but Maftal spas would be better choice . Phenazopyridine is a medication which, when excreted into the urine, has a local analgesic effect. It is often used to help with the pain, irritation, or urgency caused by urinary tract infections, surgery, or injury to the urinary tract. Phenazopyridine was discovered by Bernhard Joos, the founder of Cilag.. Its use is restricted for max 2 days.

Phenazopyridine is urinary analgesic - it is not used for treating bacterial infections Antibiotic are used for bacterial infections Both are used for different indications and need not be used together

I wanted to ask that can we give urinary analgesic phenazopyridine to tackle dysuria along with ABs?

Labelled use not indicated but yes so many time it is required to reduce pain and dysuria. Please avoid it if you are using Sulfa drugs and tetracyclines...

Phenazopyridine 200 mg tds Is working as analgesic Reduce frequency burning of urine So limited usage But look intresting drug

It can be use temporally for reliving dyslexia and pain

Temporarily it can be used

Yes pyrdium can be used

I think yes, but alkasol will suffice, if it is pyelonephritis than minimise drugs, All antibiotics according to RENAL MODIFIED DOSE
