Uribel helps relieve symptoms of discomfort, painful urination, frequent urge to void, and urinary spasms caused by urinary tract infection or a diagnostic procedure.
Uribel capsule is a combination of five medications that effectively work together in treating bladder irritation. Hyoscyamine helps relax smooth muscles to relieve muscle spasms. Methenamine and Methylene blue kill bacteria while also inhibiting their growth and proliferation. Phenyl salicylate is a pain reliever, while Sodium phosphate monobasic helps keep urine acidic, which aids in the breakdown of methenamine.
The dosage and frequency vary from person to person, depending on health, age, weight, and tolerance. This medication comes in one strength 118/10/40.8/36/0.12 mg per capsule.
The recommended adult dose is one capsule four times a day. For children six years and above, the dosage will depend on the child’s weight and needs.
