Uribel is a prescription medicine used to relieve the discomfort, pain, frequent urge to urinate, and cramps/spasms of the urinary tract caused by a urinary tract infection or a diagnostic procedure.
Some urinary medicines contain only 1 ingredient—an analgesic for pain relief. Uribel contains 5 ingredients that work together to treat your symptoms:
A pain reliever to treat pain and burning sensations when you urinate
An antispasmodic to help relax the smooth muscle tissue of your urinary tract
A combination of antiseptic ingredients**
What to expect when taking Uribel
Adult Dosing: Take one Uribel capsule 4 times a day; however, please follow your doctor’s instructions
