Description

What is Elmiron used for?

Elmiron and the generic alternative Pentosan polysulfate sodium is used to treat pain or discomfort from a certain bladder disorder known as interstitial cystitis which causes swelling and scarring of the bladder wall. It is also a weak "blood thinner" and therefore may increase the risk of bruising/bleeding (e.g., bleeding from the nose/gums).

How Does Elmiron work?

Elmiron works like an anticoagulant or blood thinner that prevents the formation of blood clots. However, it is also used to treat bladder pain and discomfort caused by cystitis resulting in bladder inflammation or irritation. It works by forming a layer on the bladder wall and protecting it from harmful or irritating substances in the urine.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Pentosan polysulfate comes as a capsule to take by mouth.
  • It is usually taken with water three times a day.
  • Take the medicine on an empty stomach either 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals.
  • Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.
  • If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.
  • Keep this medication in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of reach of children. Store it at room temperature and away from excess heat and moisture so not in the bathroom.
