Uropol for urinary infections

Abstract

Uropol (Bristol Labs) is a combination of tetracycline phosphate complex, sulphamethizole and phenazopyridine for use in acute and chronic urinary tract infections. The makers claim that it gives therapeutic tissue levels of tetracycline and high urinary levels of sulphonamide, and so reduces the risk of bacterial resistance developing, and that it is useful in the treatment of mixed infections. The addition of phenazopyridine is claimed to provide local analgesia in the lower urinary tract as well as visual assurance of drug excretion by colouring the urine bright orange-red.
