  • Burning and UTA

    I have been puzzled as to why I don't see more about people taking UTA. Is there a reason for that? My main symptom is burning and pain. I think it works pretty well for me, I have a milder case than a lot of people. Is there something that works better for burning? Right now, I'm in a flare and want some relief.
    treatment:
    -I follow the IC diet to the letter
    -acupuncture and chinese herbs
    -Prelief
    -UTA
    -instillations as needed
    -beginning yoga and specialized yoga for breathing and relaxation
    -Wellbutrin
    -Klonopin


    main symptoms: pain and burning

      http://www.sjpharma.com/products/uro...ducts/uta.html is the web site about it. It does about 4 things in one capsule, antiseptic, analgesic, antispasmodic, relaxes muscle spasms. It turns urine blue and is a prescription.

      It contains: (from the web site)

      Methenamine 120 mg
      In presence of acid urine, hydrolyzes to formaldehyde therefore providing antiseptic activity.

      Sodium Phosphate Monobasic 40.8 mg
      An acidifier necessary for breakdown of methenamine into formaldehyde.

      Phenyl Salicylate 36 mg
      Has mild analgesic & antiseptic activities.

      Methylene Blue 10 mg
      Turns urine blue and not shocking red or orange. Has antiseptic properties. Encapsulation minimizes the risk of staining.

      Hyoscyamine Sulfate 0.12 mg
      Relaxes smooth muscles therefore reducing spasms
      treatment:
      -I follow the IC diet to the letter
      -acupuncture and chinese herbs
      -Prelief
      -UTA
      -instillations as needed

        That's pretty much the same thing as the other pee blue pills, such as Urelle, Utira-C, Prosed, etc. Most of us are using one of them. I take 3 to 4 Urelle tablets every day.

          I tried them in the past but they didn't help me much. I take almost every other recommended med for IC though! LOL I really hate that sometimes too, because I know there is really no where else to go with my meds. I still have pain daily. I also have fibro, chronic fatigue, pfd, depression and pcos, I think I got them all. I am so tired of all of this.

            Hi,

            I just came across your post today as I was surfing around as my IC or suspected IC is flaring a bit. I have a milder case like you and mainly deal with burning and the frequency urge. Mine seems to flare up before my menstrual cycle, which I know is pretty common. I deal with minor symptoms daily though. I have tried Pyridium and Prosed -- both did nothing and then she tried me on Uribel and that actually seems to work. I try not to take them unless I really need them. It's one of the blue pills and sounds very much like UTA. I don't have any other suggestions for you, though I know this post was a couple months ago. I just wanted to write since it sounds like we have similar symptoms.

              Which blue pills are the cheapest? I take prosed and they are very expensive.

                I have no idea, as none of them are generics that I know of. I take Urelle and for a 90-day supply (with insurance) the cost is close to $1,000.
