Azo? Have no idea what this is. Is there another name?

Antibiotics. Azo is safe for use during pregnancy but it is not an antibiotic and will not adequately treat a bladder infection. It is important that bladder infections in pregnancy be properly treated to prevent spread to the kidney.
No. Over the counter AZO or cold preparations may ease some of the pain/discomfort symptoms associated with a urinary tract infection but do nothing to treat the infection, which may become systemic and lead to sepsis in the long run. It is important that you see a doctor and get started on an antibiotic and have a urine culture to confirm infection and effective antibiotic regimens.
I had what felt like a bladder infection I took the Azo pills and drank lots of water the burning went away still have pressure on bladder though???
Need antibiotic. Urinary infections are typically bacterial, and AZO and fluids alone will not rid you of the bacterium. You may need antibiotics. Visit your doctor.
SEE DOCTOR. Azo does not treat infections, Antibiotics do! If you still have pressure, you still have an infection. The only reason to take Azo is for short term relief until you can see a health care provider, or until the antibiotic you are taking starts working. Too many patients take Azo and end up with Kidney infections and serious Sepsis because they think Azo will cure the UTI - IT DOESN'T!

UCC for UTI. The symptoms of UTI are burning, pain, hesitancy, incontinence, frequency, urgency, nighttime voiding, blood in the urine, and residual sensation after. You have the burning without the pain nor frequency. Look at the other symptoms to make your decision - you may be able to push fluids and escape this one. If you have more symptoms, go to an urgent care clinic for a dipstick to rule out uti.

It. It sounds like the medicine she is taking is working. As she continues to heal, the buring sensation and frequent urinations (which are symptoms of the infection) will also subside. In the meantime, otc pain medications may help. However, it is prudent to take her to an urgent care facility to be assessed. Perhaps she needs a stronger antibiotic to fight the infection. Blood in the urine should always be assessed by a doctor.
See a doctor. Have your mother see her doctor to identify the organism causing the UTI so that the infection can be treated with an appropriate antibiotic.
