Cystex Urinary Pain Relief Tablets
Physician and pharmacist-recommended Cystex Urinary Pain Relief Tablets is the only over-the-counter (OTC) medication that has a dual-action formula to help manage urinary tract infections (UTIs) while waiting to see a doctor. Unlike other drug store medicines, Cystex helps to relieve the pain and burning associated with a urinary tract infection (UTI) while also inhibiting the progression of the infection with an antibacterial. It is the only OTC urinary pain relief medicine to combine a key pain-fighting analgesic, sodium salicylate, with an effective antibacterial agent, methenamine, to help stop the pain and progression of a urinary tract infection (UTI). Additionally, Cystex will not change the color of the urine as some other OTC medications will.
Cystex is not meant to replace the care of a doctor, since urinary tract infections (UTIs) require prescription medication to completely cure the infection. Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you suspect a urinary tract infection (UTI). Use Cystex as directed on the package or by your physician.
