Talking about your bladder and going to the toilet are usually culturally taboo subjects – but that is not to say that bladder problems are rare. When you experience issues, it is important to know that you are not alone and that support is out there to help you when you need it.
When you initially experience the symptoms of bladder irritation/infection or cystitis, your local pharmacist will be able to offer advice and talk to you about treatments that are available over-the-counter. If the problem is more serious, or persists, then you should consult your GP who will be able to prescribe stronger medication.
More serious forms of the condition are interstitial cystitis and recurrent bacterial cystitis.
For the treatment of interstitial cystitis and recurrent bacterial cystitis, Teva markets Cystistat® (sodium hyaluronate solution), a CE marked class III medical device.
We continue to explore opportunities to expand into other treatments for urological conditions. Our intent remains, as always, to provide patients with the most effective and safest treatments for their diseases.
Our work with patients, and our experience in this area of therapy, means we are really well placed to invest in extensive research into potential medicines to cure or help alleviate the many symptoms of urological conditions, to offer patients a wider choice of treatments.
