What is Hemoclar?

Hemoclar is used to relieve the symptoms of the bladder condition called interstitial cystitis.

Hemoclar is available only with your doctor's prescription.

Hemoclar indications

An indication is a term used for the list of condition or symptom or illness for which the medicine is prescribed or used by the patient. For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains. Now fever, headache and body pains are the indications of paracetamol. A patient should be aware of the indications of medications used for common conditions because they can be taken over the counter in the pharmacy meaning without prescription by the Physician.
