  • Urelle everyday?

    Is Urelle safe to take every day? I've been taking at least 1-2 every day since last week. The Uro told me to take them as needed but I seem to need one everyday.

    I do not take urelle, but my urogyne wanted me to take them,but I cannot take it because it has anticholergenic properties and I have a very slow gut as it is, and cannot tolerate any type of anticholergenic. But he did say that it was safe to take regularly and that he has patients that take it daily for long term just to keep their symptoms under control.

      My uro said that it was safe to take long term. I was taking AZO pretty much everyday and I knew that wasn't safe to take long term so I asked him for something that would be safter to take long term and Urelle is what he gave me.

      I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
      1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
      2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
      I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

      I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)
