Description

Elmiron (Pentosan polysulfate) is used to relieve bladder pain and discomfort related to interstitial cystitis, a disease that causes swelling and scarring of the bladder wall. Pentosan polysulfate is similar to a class of medications called low molecular weight heparins. It works by preventing irritation of the bladder walls. Pentosan Polysulfate Sodium (generic) is available for purchase. 

Pentosan polysulfate comes as a capsule to take by mouth. It is usually taken with water three times a day, 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take pentosan polysulfate exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Cautions

Before taking pentosan polysulfate,

  • tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to pentosan polysulfate, danaparoid (Orgaran), heparin, or any other medications.
  • tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking. Be sure to mention any of the following: anticoagulants ('blood thinners') such as warfarin (Coumadin) and aspirin. Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects.
  • tell your doctor if you have or have ever had an aneurysm, hemophilia, ulcers, low platelet count, an intestinal blockage, or liver or spleen disease.
  • tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while taking pentosan polysulfate, call your doctor.
  • if you are having surgery, including dental surgery, tell the doctor or dentist that you are taking pentosan polysulfate.
  • you should know that pentosan polysulfate has a blood-thinning effect and may cause increased bleeding.

I am so grateful for the service Canadian MedCenter provides. Many medications in the USA are too expensive to obtain and I would not have been able to afford the cost of the medications my dog needs to survive. Thank you once again for providing this service!!! Ramona in Kansas City, MO
