Cystex Urinary Pain Relief Tablets -- 100 ct.
Physician- and pharmacist-recommended Cystex Urinary Pain Relief Tablets is an over-the-counter formula to help manage urinary tract infections while waiting to see a doctor. Cystex helps to relieve the pain and burning associated with a urinary tract infection while also inhibiting the progression of the infection with an antibacterial. It combines a pain-fighting analgesic, sodium salicylate, with an effective agent, methenamine, to help stop the pain and progression of a urinary tract infection. Additionally, Cystex will not change the color of the urine. Not only is Cystex used to help treat the pain, burning and progression of an existing urinary tract infection, but some doctors believe it can also be an excellent preventative therapy for those who suffer from recurring urinary tract infections. Cystex is not meant to replace the care of a doctor, since urinary tract infections require prescription medication to completely cure the infection.
From the Manufacturer
Cystex is a non-prescription medication available at your drug store. It works two ways. For one, Cystex contains methenamine. This inhibits the growth of bacteria in the urinary tract, and is specially useful for chronic suppressive treatment. Cystex also contains sodium salicylate, which safely and effectively relieves pain, inflammation and fever.
If you suffer from a burning sensation while urinating, or you need to urinate frequently, you may have a urinary tract infection (UTI). UTIÕs can be painful, but, when treated properly, are rarely a serious health threat.
UTIÕs are caused by bacteria entering the urinary tract. At one time or another in their lives, 1 out of 4 women develop a urinary tract infection. Women tend to get UTIÕs more often than men, because in women sexual intercourse can result in bacteria being pushed into the urethra, the urinary canal; and women have a shorter urethra than men. Wiping from back to front after bowel movements Ð i.e., towards the urethra Ð can also push bacteria towards the urinary tract.
- Drink plenty of liquid and urinate frequently. Urination helps to flush out bacteria.
- Wipe from front to back after a bowel movement Ð away from the urethra.
- Take showers rather than baths.
- Urinate after intercourse.
