    I have been on Elmiron for 6 months,the last month I increased my dose to 600mgs. I have mild to none pain. Although my problem is frequency. Is there anyone who has been on the drug and notice improvement with there frequency? I also heard that it usually helps with pain first and frequency later.
    I am getting very discouraged.

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

    I suggest you look at the Patient Handbook at --- There's information there on Elmiron.

    I had to stop taking it because I'm one of the few who develop side effects from it, but I have heard that some ICers who benefit from taking it feel like they have normal bladders. It doesn't work for everyone, however. I hope you will be one of the fortunate ones.

    Sending warm welcoming hugs,
    Stay safe
