Non-Narcotic Pain Medicines
There are several non-opiod medicines currently available that are used to relieve symptoms caused by irritation of the urinary tract such as pain, burning, the feeling of needing to urinate urgently or frequently, and bladder spasms. These are also commonly used for pain associated with urinary tract infections.

- Pyridium (has been taken off of the Medicare Part D formulary)
- Urelle Oral
- Uribel™ (analgesic, antispasmodic, and antiseptic combination)
