    I am fairly certain I am coming - have to schedule around my oldest son's baseball practice. How long will this last? I may not get there until 4:30-ish...

    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.

      Hey guys. GREAT to meet everyone today. I realized on the way home that today was the first time I met anyone with IC in person. It was the first time I stood by another human being living with the same disease...

      Look forward to meeting with you all again! Thanks Louise.
