        Great news!!!

        Diagnosed August 2001

        Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)

        Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

        I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.


        “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl

                You go girl. hi I am so happy for you! I am waiting for a hearing date now and hopefully I will have some news soon.. One thing I did that might speed up yall's cases was to call your congressmans office and request them to flag your file and also if you are in financial trouble they can also try to get the hearing date speeded up. I will know soon whether or not it helped to do this. I certainly hope so... When we hear of someone getting approved it really lifts our spirits. Thank you and way to go! LisaK
