    I'm not sure if this information has been posted elsewhere, but I though this was a good thread to post it if not.

    I was surfing around and found out when the Elmiron patent expires. I hope the generic comes out soon after.

          My Elmiron used to cost 15 dollars a month now it is close to 600 a month. Need help! I am a school teacher and can't afford this and I can't go without the meds.
