Most substances will not interfere with the test. However, some medications, like Soothe, can affect the color of your urine, making it difficult to properly match the colors. For example, if you take more than 500 mg of
Vitamin C in 24 hours, you may obtain a false negative nitrite result. The drug tetracycline may also cause a false negative leukocyte result. If you are having difficulty reading the test strip or getting a negative result while experiencing UTI symptoms, contact your healthcare professional immediately.
We do not recommend using the test strips while taking the UTI pain relief or Uqora Flush. Our UTI pain relief contains phenazopyridine hydrochloride, an orange organic dye. This dye enters the urine to take effect and relieve UTI pain. However, it also turns the urine bright orange! Since our test strips use color to indicate if you might have a UTI, the orange urine will make them more difficult to interpret.
Uqora Flush contains Vitamin C. High intake of Vitamin C may impact the results of the test strips by impacting the perceived color. This could lead to a false negative nitrite result. For these reasons, while safe, we do not recommend taking our UTI pain relief or Uqora Flush before using the test strips.
