  • Found Job, losing Medicaid

    I've been searching for work for soooo long, and I finally lucked into a job. Its prabably temporary, but it'll be at least 2 or 3 months worth of work. Anyway the wage is decent and its going to take away my medical card. I'm not married and have no other insurance. Does anyone know of any sources of how to get elmiron if you have no insurance? Thanks, Shannon

    Check here:

    The manufacturer has a program.

    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.


    “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl

      The last time I went to the uro he gave me all the paperwork I needed to send in. But with the three of us, hubby made to much. Oh well, I tried.

      Hang in there. And good luck with your new job!!
