What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication.

Elmiron is used to treat pain/discomfort from a certain bladder disorder (interstitial cystitis). It may work by forming a layer on the bladder wall and protecting it from harmful/irritating substances in the urine. It is also a weak blood thinner and may increase the risk of bruising/bleeding (such as bleeding from the nose/gums).
How to Use Elmiron
Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking pentosan polysulfate sodium and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take Elmiron by mouth at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals as directed by your doctor, usually 3 times daily. Use Elmiron regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day. Do not increase your dose or take Elmiron more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase. Tell your doctor if your condition worsens or does not improve after 3 months.
