    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
