Yes. Once you've: been diagnosed with a UTI, you can take ago standard for a few days until the symptoms go away. Keep in mind that azo doesn't treat the infection itself. If you take it before you see a doctor, it can prevent us from getting an accurate reading from a urine dipstick screening test for infection but shouldn't interfere with a urine culture.
