September 2017


Pentosan polysulfate sodium is the only oral medication that has been developed for bladder pain syndrome. As well as relieving pain and urgency, it is also thought to help to repair the bladder lining. The drug is taken as oral capsules three times a day. If this medicine is launched in the UK, it will offer an additional treatment option for patients with painful bladder syndrome.
