Oxytetracycline, sulfamethizole and phenazopyridine is no longer available in the United States.

The combination of oxytetracycline, sulfamethizole and phenazopyridine is known by the brand name Urobiotic. Oxytetracycline is a medication found in the group known as tetracycline antibiotics. Sulfamethizole is found in the sulfonamide class and phenazopyridine is an analgesic. This combination of medications comes in a capsule form and is taken orally. Oxytetracycline, sulfamethizole and phenazopyridine is available by prescription only.

Together, oxytetracycline, sulfamethizole and phenazopyridine effectively treat infections of the urinary tract that are caused by bacteria. Urobiotic treats such infections as pyelonephritis, pyelitis, ureteritis, cystitis, prostatitis, and urethritis. These infections are usually caused by bacteria such as Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Aerobacter aerogenes, Streptococcus faecalis, Streptococcus hemolyticus, and Micrococcus pyogenes. The multiple antibiotics increase the desired result more than if these antimicrobials were used separately.
