  • Any New Meds for IC?

    I have been offline for a few months and am wondering if there are any new medications for IC other than the usual that go along with Elmiron?
    I heard someone say they saw something about IC meds on TV

    I havent heard of any new meds out on the market as of yet. Elmiron is the newest & most widely used, of course. However, there is alot of reserach going on to help find a CURE for IC..which is great!
    I think docs are now just expermenting with a variety of diff. drugs, like antidepressants, tricyclics. What kind of med did you see on TV for IC??
    Currently Taking:
    20 mg Celexa
    fentanyl patch 12.5 mcg chgd every 3 days
    morphine IR 15 MG, up to 3x daily
    Xanax 1mg as needed (not taken daily)
    900 MG Oxycarbizine (mood disorder)
    300 MG Welbutrin
    Tizanidine 4 mg up to 20 mg daily as need
    Prevacid 30 mg
    Ambien as needed

    my heating pad is my best friend, use daily on my lower back & pelvic area
    blessed to be able to receive massage & Amma , along with Avazzia therapy 3x weekly

    Been diagnosed for 10 years now, consider myself pretty well versed in this disease & would love to help out with new IC sisters or brothers, feel free to message me.
