No it does not: Uristat (phenazopyridine) relieves bladder and urethral symptoms of burning &/or pain. Does nothing to clear up a uti. You need antibiotics to kill the bacteria which cause utis. Best to consult your dr. Or nurse practioner.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
