Cystopen 100 mg is a prescription for relieving bladder pain or discomfort associated with interstitial cystitis. It is unknown how exactly the medicine works, but it is not a pain medication like aspirin or acetaminophen and must be used continuously for relief as prescribed. It contains the active substance pentosan polysulfate sodium, which passes into the urine and attaches to the lining of the bladder, helping to form a protective layer. Cystopen is also used in adults to treat bladder pain syndrome characterized by many tiny bleeds or distinctive lesions on the bladder wall, moderate to severe pain, and a frequent urge to urinate.
