Discussions that mention pyridium

Kidney Disorders board


:confused: I didn't get to talk to the doctor at all..what I know is from what my husband and mom told me. I feel like crap today...some twinges on my left side where I am assuming the stent is...and pressure and frequency but not urinating much when I do go...UTI symptoms. He put me on an antibiotic and pyridium so I am assuming this is normal...but I wasn't expecting to feel this lousy.
The pyridium can cause UTI like symptoms especially if you have sensititvity to iodine. If it continues he may be able to put you on detrol to elleviate the bladder symptoms.
