  • Benzidrine-Lidocaine Instillation is Working!

    A week ago my Urologist gave me my first Benzidrine-Lidocaine instillation. I wanted to try the treatment before starting my fertility drugs in early October. I glad and relieved to report that the instillation works though it took my bladder a couple of days to get used to this. I go tomorrow for my next instillation. It's great to know that I can keep my reproductive system safe for the fertility drugs and IUI!

    Previously Treatments: Elmiron 300mg/day, DMSO instillations, Elavil 12.5mg/night, Detrol LA

    Hi Melissa,

    I was thrilled to read your message as i am having my first installation of this tomorrow. I have come off all my meds to try for a baby and it has left me in terrible amounts of pain and most days bed ridden. I am scared to expose myself to something new but this is really my last hope. I hope I have as much luck as you.

    Thanks for sharing your story, I am so scared that this could make the pain even worse but u gave me hope.

    Thanks again and I hope your IC continues to improve for you.
