Azo Test Strips Medication
Don't think so: What was your test positive for? Azo is both a commonly used name for a medication used to reduce pain of urinary tract infection, and which also can turn urine orange and stain things, and the name of a company that makes several products. Methadone programs are required to do confirmatory tests for positive screens, and you should ask for that, if you haven't used other drugs. ...Read more
At two minute mark my Azo UTI strip showed "trace" color for leu. A few minutes later was darker. Which is correct? The test says its ready in two.
Urinary test WBCs: You probably have some trace leukocytes there but what you observe is the test strip "keeps reacting" after the 2 min mark, so it looks "more positive" than it is. Best to follow the test instructions exactly. White blood cells (WBCs) could indicate a urinary tract infection so you should probably see a doctor about it. ...Read more
Have hematuria. Used OTC "azo test strips" to confirm uti. Do I need go dr for med or do OTC med help? It'll b few days b4 can c dr is that k?
I have 500+ on the Azo urine test strip, negative for the nitrite. Have had a low fever ranging from 99.0-100.3 for the last 2 weeks. What could it be?
UrineUrineEverywhere: There are lots of opinions about discrepancies between the Nitrite and Leukocyte parts of the urine test. But here's my take: if you have symptoms and either or both is positive then it's most likely a UTI; both negative, repeat the test in a day and if still negative, ask your doctor. No symptoms then don't take the test just for "fun." You may end up getting confused and wasting a lot of time. ...Read more
I had a random drug test because I am in a pain contract. A few days before, I had a UTI and had been using AZO tabs. The doctor will not refill my?
Here are some...: If urine test is the must step before refilling pain med for your essential long-term pain control, you have be off AZO for 3-5 days so not to taint testing since AZO is not antibiotics. On the other hand, for someone with high trustworthiness, a doctor may refill pain med after properly documenting no clinical abuse of pain medication, which has become socially epidemic among many pain med users. ...Read more
I keep testng pos for WBCs on azo test strips even after two days of Cipro (ciprofloxacin). (Neg for nitrites). No pain &no urine odor. Could this be smthng serious?
Doubt UTI. STD?: Without pain, urgency, or frequency, and with negative nitrites and non-response to ciprofloxacin, probably not a urinary tract infection. Maybe WBC test (leukocyte esterase) isn't working right. Or not clean urine (vaginal WBC?). Yeast? Depending on your risk for STD, it could be gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, yeast. Or something else entirely. Best to stop cipro and contact your doctor. ...Read more

Go see your doctor:
You're a young male and have testicular pain - go and see your doctor.
Leukocyte positive can be from UTI or STI as you said - nitrite can be falsely negative in UTI; so no one online can give you a definitive answer.
So short answer - again, go see your doctor - especially since you're having testicular pain. ...Read more

Urge to urinate for a few weeks now, but no other UTI symptoms. AZO test strips test positive for WBC & nitrites. Is it more likely a UTI or an STD?
UTI is more likely: Gonorrhea or chlamydia can mimic some UTI symptoms, but usually this would be burning on urination; urgency alone is more likely bladder inflammation due to UTI, especially for "a few weeks" and with positive nitrite and WBC. See a doctor soon: you need a formal urinalysis, probably a urine culture, STD testing since it's on your mind, and probably an antibiotic prescription. ...Read more
Is it okay to take Azo pills for penile yeast infection? Which medication is recommended for that kind of thing?
Besides azo, what otc oral medications can I take for a yeast infection caused by antibiotic use?
Azo won't prevent: A yeast infection, altho oral probiotics MAY lessen the chance of antibiotic-associated diarrhea. Bacteria from the digestive tract are the most common cause of UTI's. If diarrhea facilitates the introduction of bacteria into the urinary tract, preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhea could theoretically help prevent UTIs. Dr. Anne ...Read more
It will not...: Attempting to foil a drug screen will just add misery for you--your employer or whoever is requesting the drug screen will see you not just a dope but also a liar (trying to hide/sabotage your drug test).

Tested positive on leukocytes in my urine with Azo urine test, but at the doctors the culture came back negative. But I don't understand how my urine?
Urine WBC, UTI, STD?: The Azo urine leukocytes (WBC) test gives a clue about urinary tract infection, but that's all. WBCs can appear in the urine from vulva or vaginal fluids if not a good "clean catch" specimen. Discuss with doctor if you have typical UTI symptoms (urgency, burning). If not, retest and don't worry if leukocytes normal. STDs also can cause urine WBC with negative culture, so get checked if at risk. ...Read more

I just finished my antibiotics yesterday for my uti. I have no symptoms. This morning I did an Azo test. It showed positive for Leu and neg for Nit?
Infection cleared: Most likely since you are now asymptomatic and the urine dip was negative for nitrites. Leukocytes are part of your body's defense system and may still be present as they finish their course of getting rid of the infection. Nitrites are a by-product of bacteria that cause the UTI. Since it is negative, likely the infection has cleared. If you develop symptoms again, see your PCP for a re-check ...Read more
