    Mirabegron to manage symptoms of interstitial cystitis / bladder pain syndrome: A stone for two birds?

    João Antonio Pereira-Correia*, Luiza Amaral Nahoum, João Ernesto Aldred Pinto and Valter José Fernandes Muller

    Background: Interstitial Cystitis / Bladder Pain Syndrome (IC/BPS) patients often experience lowered quality of life due to pain, urinary urgency, and increases in urinary frequency. Like many chronic pain disorders, IC/BPS is poorly understood and treatment unsatisfactory. 

    Materials and methods: We prospectively monitored the effects on pain and urinary complaints, of mirabegron associated with amitriptyline, for randomly selected women with IC/BPS. 

    Results: Twenty-five women were randomly selected to treat pain symptoms of IC/BPS and 12 followed up until the end of the study. All patients showed improvement on all questionnaires referring to pain IC/BPS symptoms and urinary storage symptoms. There was no statistically significant improvement in urinary frequency. 

    Conclusions: We suggest that mirabegron can work controlling urinary urgency and pain of IC/BPS patients.
