Pharmacy Questions? Ask a Pharmacist Online.
Have you tried Azo or Uristat (OTC)?
Generic name (active ingredient) needs to be Phenazopyridine
It will help with your UTI symptoms like burning and urgency. But will need a prescription from MD to get an antibiotic to fully get rid of the infection. Of course plenty of fluids help too :)

Please feel free to ask as many questions as you would like to get your questions answered to your satisfaction.
If you are prone to chronic UTIs, then I would ask the doctor to prescribe an antibiotic as prevention such as Septra or Macrodantin onceca day.
Cranberry juice helps with prevention, but not much help in treating the infection.
One other suggestion I have is to be sure to urinate right after intercourse... it's the easiest way to prevent UTIs.
Hope this helps and hope you feel better. I know how painful and discomforting UTI can be.
