In brief: Elimiron

Elmiron (pentosan) is a medication that is fda approved for ic (interstitial cystitis).
The main way it works is not truly known, but it may help with coating the lining of the bladder. In ic, inflammation may be the main cause of pain. Have you seen a doctor in regards to this? Hopefully, you can get the proper testing and see if this med would work well for you.
