User Comments about Pyridium
11 Sep 2011 I was recently prescribed Pyridium and Bactrum after developing a urinary tract infection. A physicians assistant from Med Express prescribed pyridium to be taken three times a day and Bactrum twice a day. After the thrid day I started to experience severe stomache pains after taking my single pyridium pill with lunch. The pain was so severe that I had to contact an on call physician at a local hospital to see if I should take further action to ensure that I did not have a kidney infection. The physican ordered for me to discontinue the use of Pyridium and continue taking Bactrum. I have since not experience any stomache discomfort.

16 Aug 2010 The only thing I have to say about this is that it works, but just don't be alarmed when your urine starts changing colors.

14 Jun 2010 I'm very happy that my doctor prescribed me Pyridium. It started working very quickly and I really noticed a difference. My UTI was gone within a few days.

25 May 2010 Sometimes the pyridium works very well and other times it will do nothing at all besides turn my urine orange and cause severe cramping.
