  • Actually, there are two types of Azo, the one you're talking about which the active ingredient is pyridium. It's a dye like iodine that coats the bladder and urinary tract to releive pain. Thens there's the Azo cranberry tablets that are a homeopathis remedy for the UTI. Cranberrries can treat and cure UTIs, but usually only mild ones.

  • AZO pills from walmart (or any other pharmacy) they are homeopathic too so you won't build up an immunity to them like you can antibiotics that you would get from the doc.

  • AZO is merely something that will numb the area after you take it so that it won't burn and make you uncomfortable. It does not cure the UTI. You can use it to make yourself not feel like crap till you can make it to the dr. The box says not to take it more than 2 days. It will make your pee reddish orange, since the active ingredient is actually a dye.
