With the aid of a catheter, the ready-to-use solution is inserted into a pre-emptied bladder and it replishes the GAG-layer locally, where needed. For proper effect, you must hold Gepan® instill at least half an hour in the bladder.
How often and how long Gepan® instill should be used depends on the severity of your symptoms. As an initial therapy 4-6 treatments with a one week interval have proved effective.
Based on your needs, your doctor may subsequently proceed to a treatment of one application per month. Gepan® instill, due to its local action, is generally very well tolerated without any side effects.
