Elmiron® (pentosan polysulfate sodium) is a prescription drug used to help relieve bladder pain or discomfort associated with interstitial cystitis (IC) in adults. It comes in the form of a gelatin capsule and is typically taken three times a day. Your particular dosage will be determined based on a number of factors, including whether you are taking other medications or have other medical conditions.
It is recommended that you take your dose with water, either one hour before or two hours after a meal. For Elmiron to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed.
