Uristat’s Pain Relief Tablets offer an over-the-counter, temporary solution for pain and discomfort resulting from urinary tract infections, cystitis, or other medical conditions. This medication contains phenazopyridine HCl, noted as the number one ingredient used by doctors to ease UTI symptoms. In one box are twelve tablets and one test sheet to assess the underlying condition.


Each tablet contains 95mg of phenazopyridine HCl, used to treat pain and discomfort in the lining of the urinary tract. Inactive ingredients include lactose, magnesium silicate, magnesium stearate, crystalline cellulose, pharmaceutical glaze, and sodium starch glycolate.


The recommended dosage for this product is 2 tablets, 3 times a day, for adults and children aged 12 and over, taken with a full glass of water each time, with or after meals. Each tablet contains 95mg of the active ingredient phenazopyridine HCl. It is important not to take more than 12 tablets over 2 days without consulting your doctor or primary care provider.

Possible Side Effects

Because of the dye in the primary ingredient, this medication could dye contact lenses. It can also interfere with the results of urinalysis tests as it affects the lining of the bladder and urinary tract. Overdose or prolonged use can cause liver and intestinal damage, and less serious side effects from appropriate use include upset stomach and brightly colored urine. Side effects of the inactive ingredients are not listed on the box, but magnesium silicate, magnesium stearate, and crystalline cellulose can cause upset stomach and liver toxicity. This product also contains lactose which will cause an adverse reaction in those with an allergy. Individuals allergic to food dyes should also be careful when using this product.


Through Amazon, the lowest price available for this product is $11.59 for a box of 36 tablets. It is also available through Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Kmart, Drugstore.com, and Kinney Drugs for similar prices. This makes it easily accessible in a variety of locations.


There is no product guarantee for this medication, though it does state that it uses the number-one doctor recommended ingredient for relieving the symptoms of urinary tract infections and cystitis. It is possible that within some physical stores the product could be returned, but we found no information about the specifics of this. Therefore if it proves ineffective, there is no option to get your money back.


Because it uses the most effective over-the-counter medication to relieve urinary pain, it does effectively reduce symptoms. Customer reviews are positive across multiple platforms, which indicates effectiveness with relatively few instances of side effects. Downsides include the presence of lactose that makes this unsuitable for those who are lactose intolerant, and the dye which makes this unsuitable for those allergic to synthetic food dyes. It should be noted that this medicine does not treat the infection, but merely the symptoms, so it is likely that individuals using this will need additional medication. This product also comes with a long list of warnings for those who should not use the product and the side effects that may occur.
