What is Methenamine Sodium Acid Phosphate Methylene Blue Hyoscyamine

Methenamine Sodium Acid Phosphate Methylene Blue Hyoscyamine are used together in an oral preparation for suppression of the symptoms of irritative voiding, such as hypermotility and spasticity, that are associated with lower urinary tract infections or which are caused by diagnostic procedures.

Methenamine is an antiinfective agent, providing local bacteriostatic or bacteriocidal actions.

Sodium acid phosphate is used to acidify the urine. An acidic urine is required to hydrolyze methenamine to ammonia and formaldehyde, which produces the bactericidal activity.

Hyoscyamine produces an antispasmodic effect, and methylene blue possesses weak antiseptic activity.

These combination products have been available on the market since before 1962, which is when Congress passed the amended Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act requiring that the FDA establish both safety and efficacy for all subsequently approved drugs.

Thus, these products are unapproved marketed drugs that have not been formally evaluated by the FDA for clinical safety and efficacy.
