    Would like to hear from anyone in Rochester, NY or any of the surrounding towns and surburban areas about support groups. Would also like to hear about the different medications and diets that you are currently using.

    If seems to me that diets with natural sugar and no preservatives are best. My problem also includes being diabetic and going from sugar substitutes to regular sugar will soon become a problem for me. Is Splenda still OK and what about soda that is not diet. I've heard that Rootbeer is mostly decafinated. Is that really true?

    Does anyone know if taking Flomax is better in the evening or in the morning? I take it once daily with my dinner meal medications.

    sugar substitutes bother my bladder almost instantly so i stay away from them! but you won't know unless you try.

    I also dont drink soda b/c the carbination bothers my bladder (which has been soo rough) but again that was a trial and error conclusion!
