URACYST (SODIUM CHONDROITIN SULFATE)

Uracyst Description

Are you feeling an urgent need to urinate up to 40+ times during the day and night and you have a painful abdomen? See your doctor right away as these may be symptoms of interstitial cystitis (IC) also known as painful bladder syndrome. Testing will be carried out for a diagnosis before treatment is started to rule out other reasons for your symptoms. If you have IC, your doctor may recommend treatment with Uracyst to be administered as an out-patient.

Bladder Pain Relief with Fewer Trips to the Bathroom

A small amount of Uracyst is inserted via a catheter directly into your bladder and held for at least thirty minutes. The active ingredient of Uracyst is Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, which is the same material as one of the two molecules that make up the lining of your bladder; the other molecule is sodium hyaluronate. Both molecules contain sulfur so they repel water with their negative charge. This is how Uracyst helps to repel anything harmful that could injure the bladder lining.

Once you have completed your initial weekly treatment with Uracyst, you may be taught how to instill it into your bladder yourself, in the comfort of your own home, for the latter part of the treatment involving once a month as decided by your doctor. If you experience a flare-up, your doctor may give you a prescription for Uracyst to take back control of this bladder pain syndrome. There is no cure for interstitial cystitis, but Uracyst will help relieve your bladder pain and reduce the frequent trips to the bathroom.

Possible Causes and Risks of Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial cystitis appears to cause or be caused by damage to the mucous layer of your bladder. Without this protective lining, toxins in your urine can cause pain and inflammation to the inside of your bladder wall. The chronic inflammation can stiffen your bladder wall which interferes with its ability to expand fully to accommodate the urine so you feel like you have to urinate more frequently.

Learn the triggers that may cause your flare-ups of interstitial cystitis. These could include stress, foods/beverages with caffeine or a high acid content, an autoimmune disorder, medications, or sexual intercourse. A change in lifestyle can help you manage IC and allow you to carry on with your daily tasks at home or work.

Before Uracyst is Administered

Ask your doctor about the safety of Uracyst if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. To determine if Uracyst is right for you, tell your doctor about other medical conditions and allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Uracyst Precautions

If you are not comfortable or confident enough to perform your own catheterization, you can continue to visit a medical facility to have it done by a nurse. If you can administer your own dosage of Uracyst via a catheter, be certain you have thoroughly washed your hands or wear latex gloves during the procedure to limit the risk of an infection. Do not instill more or less than the recommend dose as instructed by your doctor.

Possible Side Effects of Uracyst

  • Infection
  • Irritation from catheter insertion
