While some people may self-diagnose themselves, particularly if they've experienced one in the past, a urinary tract infection (UTI) requires both confirmation with a doctor's diagnosis (urinalysis and/or urine culture) and a course of prescription antibiotics to clear it up. However, it may take a few days to get in to see your physician, and a day or so more for the prescription antibiotic to kick in, so urologists recommend that instead of suffering while you wait, taking an effective, over-the-counter medicine to help with the infection's pain and progression is a good bet. Cystex Plus Urinary Pain Relief Tablets is the only over-the-counter NSAID pain reliever available with a dual-action formula that not only eases the pain and burning caused by a urinary tract infection, but also contains an antibacterial agent (methenamine) to help keep the infection from getting worse while you wait for your doctor's appointment. It won't cause a change in your urine color either.
