Comment:
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.
