  • Elmiron Withdrawal Symptoms?

    Hello Friends,
    I don’t know if this is the correct spot for this post, so please direct me if it should go elsewhere. Until three weeks ago, I was on 400mg per day Elmiron for 9 years. I took myself off as soon as I learned of the Elmiron Toxicity issue, and I’m set up to see an ophthalmologist next week.
    I’m wondering if any of you have experienced withdrawal symptoms from suddenly stopping Elmiron. I have had a TERRIBLE cough, headache and lethargy since I stopped taking it. (Testing for COVID-19 was negative, thank goodness.) Today is the first day I have had some relief from the coughing and have been headache free. I know it seems silly, especially the coughing, but could there be a connection with the Elmiron withdrawal?

    coughing has nothing in common with Elmiron . It may be because of pharyngitis or bronchitis . Hope you are doing well

      to the IC Network.

      I just did a quick search and coughing is a potential side effect of elmiron --- however, I would think it would have happened while taking it. I suggest you ask your doctor or pharmacist --- I'm just glad you're feeling better now. It's a heavy pollen time where I live --- have you ever had allergy problems in springtime?

      Stay safe
