        Thanks, Kelly...I tried to send that link to Red last night and for some reason it would not connect. Must have been my computer. Or maybe the sleeping pill I took before getting on the computer. After all, the label does warn that taking this medicine may lessen your ability to perform hazardous tasks...for me, being on the computer IS HAZARDOUS. Glad you were able to do it.

            The ICA has a good list.
            30 year old Mother, Midwife, Birth Doula, Herbalist, and Massage Therapist with sudden onset of IC approx. 2/16/05 (after a PAP smear and routine gynecological exam). I tried a HUGE list of natural and alternative treatments (including Cystoprotek, Desert Harvest Aloe, Aloe gel, Glucosamine/Chondroitin, L-Argenine, Quercitin/Bromelain, Marshmallow Root...etc) for the first 9 months of having IC, without much relief, until I finally researched and started Elmiron.

            My experience:
            ~Previously took Elmiron 100mg three times a day
            (9/29/05-7/06)
            ~Experimented with dosage (1-2 Elmiron a day recapped into a plain gelcap) and did well with occasional mild flares. (7/06-9/09)
            ~Stopped all together at the 1 year mark (9/29/06) for 10 days. Still felt good, with low-level symptoms.
            ~Decided to go back on it (10/16/06) to see if another year on it will bring me into full (zero symptoms) remission. Currently taking 1-2 pills a day, recapped into a plain gelcap.
            ~ 6/08...Tried to go off Elmiron again, had huge flare at the 3 week mark, went back on 100mg once a day for maintenance.
            -I went off Elmiron for 2 months due to pregnancy and had a complete relapse of IC symptoms to pre-diagnosis levels of pain/frequency. I then went back on Elmiron at 10-12 weeks, but was unable to take it further due to severe morning sickness. The 2nd/3rd trimesters were MUCH better IC-wise, and postpartum is the best I have felt in years. I am no longer on Elmiron for now.
            -20 month postpartum remission from 4/17/09 to 12/10/10.
            -Out of remission after a pap smear on 12/10/10. Pap smears are obviously the main IC trigger for me. Currently trying to cope with loss of the remission.

            Also doing:
            ~Sugar-free/gluten free and strict IC diet (With an emphasis on organic, alkaline and whole foods)
            ~Prenatal DHA/Fish oil supplement
            ~Vitamin D supplement
            ~Culturelle probiotic
