What is Urimar-T?

Hyoscyamine creates a variety of effects within the body, such as relaxation from muscular spasms. Methenamine and methylene blue act as mild antiseptics to fight the growth of bacteria that cause urinary tract infections and bladder infections. Phenyl salicylate acts as a mild painkiller.

The sodium biphosphate form is one of phosphorus. It's an organic substance that plays a vital role in every cell of the body.
