  • what is your favorite bladder pain pill?

    I seem to being getting irritated by pyridium. It makes my bladder ache and feel kind of tingly all over. What are you guys using? Thanks. Oh and I am still staring at an unopened bottle of cysta q - any thoughts on opening it!! Thanks

    Klonopin. It really helps with my muscle spasms but can make you really sleepy and non functional during the day. You can try cutting your pills until you find a dose that will suit you if you work. However I have built up a tolerance and can take 1 mg 3 times per day now with no problems.

    The other "bladder" drugs haven't worked for me. Detrol LA is a good one, was great for my spasms but can cause you to not be able to void. However not everyone is affected by this side effect.
    IC symptoms began in 1975; diagnosed in March 2006.
    Other conditions: PFD, Migraine, VV, Total Abd Hysterectormy on 12/27,06 for Cervical Cancer, Fibromyalgia.
    Current Daily Meds: Roxicet, Methadone, Flexoril, Flomax
    I use Prayer, Yoga, Relaxation Breathing and TENS to help relieve stress, anxiety and pain- LOTS of make up to hide my true identity!

      Antispasmodics, such as hyoscyamine, work well for me to stop the spasms.

      Stay safe

        I've tried hyoscyamine (great for my IBS--does nothing for my IC!!); right now I take Zanaflex 4mg doesn't help- puts me to sleep for about 2 hours then I'm up and down for the rest of the night. Going back to the doctors to see what else he can put me on. Any suggestions
