Urinary Tract Infection Treatment Products at Walgreens

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are infections that occur when bacteria enter a person’s urethra and infect the urinary tract. UTIs can be painful and uncomfortable and may require medical care. Most UTIs can be treated at home with antibiotics from your healthcare provider, and symptoms may be eased with certain pain-relief products. Walgreens offers options to detect infections and prevent or ease symptoms, such as UTI test strips, urinary pain relief tablets and chewable cranberry tablets.  

What is a UTI?  

A urinary tract infection (UTI) occurs when bacteria enter the urethra and infect the urinary tract. There are many different parts of the urinary tract that can become infected, and the most common type of UTI is a bladder infection. UTIs may cause discomfort, pain, and burning sensations. They can typically be treated with antibiotics.  

People of any sex or age can get a UTI, but it is much more common for women to get UTIs. You are also more likely to get a UTI if you are sexually active, pregnant, or if you have had a UTI before. Symptoms such as pain or burning when urinating, pressure in the low belly, an urge to urinate often, and fatigue and shakiness can all be signs of a UTI. Speak with your healthcare provider if you think you may have a UTI.  

How do you treat UTIs?  

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are usually treated with antibiotics prescribed by a healthcare provider. The length of antibiotic treatment depends on the severity of the infection, whether you have had a UTI before, and if your symptoms go away quickly. If you are prescribed antibiotics for a UTI, it is important to take them as instructed by your healthcare provider.  

There are additional medications and treatments available over-the-counter that may help ease symptoms and pain or prevent additional UTIs such as urinary pain relief tablets, cranberry pills, and heating pads.  

Are there over-the-counter medicines to treat UTIs?  

While urinary tract infections (UTIs) are usually treated with antibiotics, over-the-counter medications and treatment options are available that may help relieve symptoms causing discomfort and pain or prevent UTIs from reoccurring. These include urinary pain relief tablets, cranberry pills, and heating pads. There is ongoing research into the benefits of cranberry for fighting infections. Speak with your healthcare provider or pharmacist to learn more about the over-the-counter options for treating UTIs. 

Can I go to a pharmacy for a UTI? 

It’s best to speak with your healthcare provider if you think you have a urinary tract infection (UTI). They may prescribe antibiotics that you can get at a pharmacy. They can also provide information about the over-the-counter products available at pharmacies to help ease your UTI symptoms.  

Does Walgreens sell over-the-counter UTI medicine? 

At Walgreens, you can find options for detecting urinary tract infections (UTIs) and for easing symptoms. UTI test strips can help you detect infections, while urinary pain relief tablets and cranberry pills may help to relieve UTI discomfort or prevent recurring UTIs. Researchers are still looking into the possible benefits of cranberry in fighting infections, but their findings are inconclusive. To learn more about the over-the-counter options available for treating UTI symptoms, talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.  

What is UTI medicine?  

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are usually treated with prescription antibiotics. These are medicines that help kill the bacteria causing the infection or stop bacteria from multiplying. The length of antibiotic treatment depends on factors such as symptom severity, length of infection and if you have previously had a UTI. Be sure to carefully follow your healthcare provider’s instructions when taking prescribed antibiotics to treat a UTI. 

How long does a UTI last?  

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) usually go away after the first few days of antibiotics treatment. Depending on the severity of the infection, they may last a bit longer. If you often get UTIs, your healthcare provider may prescribe low-dose antibiotics for a few months at a time. If you have a UTI, over-the-counter products may help ease your symptoms while you receive antibiotic treatment.  

What are UTI symptoms? 

Symptoms of UTIs may include the following: pain or burning when urinating, pressure in the low belly, an urge to urinate often, and fatigue and shakiness. If you have severe pain in your back or lower abdomen, vomiting, nausea, or fever, see your healthcare provider immediately. These can be signs of a serious kidney infection. Speak with your healthcare provider if you think you may have a UTI.
