I had IC for months that went undiagnosed. PA at OBGYN caught on finally and did bladder cocktails once a week for 6 weeks and I went on Elmiron for 6 months. I found my trigger was diet soda. I don't touch that stuff anymore and have not needed Elmiron for 6 years now. My life is totally "normal" now.

Comment:
It has taken about 8 months to feel as if the Elmiron is working. I have changed my diet, the main culprit for me was wine. Artificial sweeteners also played a key role, therefore, I no longer drink diet sodas, and I use natural Stevia in my coffee (won't give that up, although it's an irritant). Changed a lot of what I ate and drank. I also learned how to do the bladder installments ... Show Full Comment
