Brief Answer: It is an antibiotic. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for using Healthcare Magic. Azogen is an antibiotic used for treating UTIs. It is commonly used in Mexico. I suggest you continue to take it and if your symptoms persist, see a doctor at the earliest opportunity. Also, drink plenty of water. This will avoid dehydration. If you are experiencing pain, paracetamol will help. Avoid non-steroidals for pain as these can affect kidney function. I hope this is of help. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards, Dr K A Pottinger, MBChB FRCA
