Pentosan polysulfate sodium, the active ingredient in Elmiron, is believed to work by restoring the inner surface of the bladder, which protects the bladder wall from substances in the urine that could irritate it. However, the exact mechanism of action in treating interstitial cystitis still needs to be fully understood.



Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) is an oral medication that serves as the only FDA-approved treatment for interstitial cystitis (IC), also known as painful bladder syndrome. It is classified as a heparin-like compound. Elmiron provides relief by attaching to the bladder wall mucosa, presumably forming a protective layer that shields the bladder from irritants in urine. This action reduces the chronic pain, urgency, and frequency of urination associated with IC.

Special Precautions

Before taking Elmiron, patients should inform their healthcare provider if they have:

● Any allergies, especially to pentosan polysulfate sodium or heparins.
● A history of blood disorders (thrombocytopenia, hemophilia).
● A history of stomach/intestinal problems (like diverticulosis, polyps, ulcers).
● Undergone any recent surgeries.

● Taking any other forms of medication, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements, to avoid potential adverse drug interactions.


In case of overdose, immediate medical attention should be sought. Symptoms of an overdose may include unusual bruising or bleeding. Due to Elmiron's anticoagulant effects, an overdose could increase the risk of bleeding complications.
