AZO Plays Defense With Urinary Tract Infections

New AZO Urinary Tract Defense™ Helps Slow the Progression of Infection**

CROMWELL, CT--(Marketwired - July 20, 2016) - One-third of all women who have experienced a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) will get another one.1 Today, leading urinary and vaginal health brand AZO† has announced the launch of New AZO Urinary Tract Defense™, an over-the-counter drug that helps women play defense when UTI symptoms strike.

AZO Urinary Tract Defense™ features the only antibacterial UTI ingredient available without a prescription to help defend against the progression of an infection until a doctor can be consulted.** "One of the active ingredients in AZO Urinary Tract Defense™ helps fight the bacteria that can cause a UTI," said Board Certified OB-GYN Dr. Alyssa Dweck.^

Dr. Dweck^ regularly recommends AZO products to her patients and has started including AZO Urinary Tract Defense™ when they begin to experience UTI symptoms -- such as pain and burning when urinating, frequency and urgency -- to inhibit the infection from worsening until they can obtain treatment.** "The tablets also offer general pain relief to alleviate the discomfort associated with a UTI," she said.

"For women who tend to experience UTIs, the painful symptoms are all too familiar and can often derail a busy work day or family and social obligations," said Sara Urbanek, marketing manager at i-Health, Inc. the distributor of AZO. "AZO Urinary Tract Defense™ can help manage the infection, because life doesn't pause for a UTI."**

New AZO Urinary Tract Defense™ is available at Target, Walmart, food and drug stores, and other major retailers. The retail price ranges from $8.47 to $13.49 for a box of 24 tablets.
