What is utac?

Uroqid-Acid No.2 500 mg-500 mg Tab
Drug Name: METHEN MAND/NAPHOS M-B M-H
Other Brand Names: Uroqid-Acid No.2
Uses: This medication is used to prevent or control returning urinary tract infections caused by certain bacteria. It is not used to treat an active infection. Other antibiotics must be used first to treat and cure the infection. Methenamine is an antibiotic that stops the growth of bacteria in urine. Sodium acid phosphate helps to make the urine acidic. When the urine is acidic, methenamine turns into formaldehyde to kill the bacteria. This antibiotic is effective only against bacterial infections in the urinary tract. It will not work for other types of bacterial infections (such as in the blood) or for viral infections (such as the common cold or flu). Unnecessary use or misuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.
