    First of all, I'd like to welcome you to the IC Network boards. I know you'll find a lot of information and support here.

    My first suggestion to you is to read the information in the Patient Handbook --- it's on the pull-down menu at the top of this page. The handbook contains information on various treatment options.

    With our disease there are so many differences in how we respond to medications that what works well for me would not necessarily have any effect at all on you.

    Sending a welcoming hug,
    Stay safe

    Have you checked the ICN Shop?
    Click on ICN Shop at the top of this page. You'll find Bladder Builder and Bladder Rest, both of which we are finding have excellent results.
