  • anyone interested in a 30-40's IC section

    Hi....Is anyone intersted in starting a section for those of us in the in-between group....
    I would love it...We have different challenges than the 20 year olds and the 50 and up, and it would be interesting. How do we do this?

      I think that is a good idea. It would be nice to have a 30 to 40 year old section. Maybe Jill could help us with this.

          Agreed -- I think it would be a cool idea.

              Have you tried putting it on the "Suggestions" board? That might get a quicker response.

              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.
