  • herbs with IC

    Hi, Has anyone used herbs: California Poppy and/or Passion Flower?
    These are supposed to be safe.. anyone have an opinion?
    Anyone had a bad reaction with these dealing with IC pain?

    Thanks for your input!
    Diagnosed with IC in September 2010, after suffering from chronic UTI's. I suffer from pretty bad insomnia as well.
    Prosed in the beginning of diagnosis. Cysta- Q helped heal my bladder.
    Amitriptyline (discontinued now, but was very very helpful), and Macrobid to maintain pain relief and get some sleep. Prelief and Marshmallow Root capsules/ or tea leaves, daily to maintain pain relief.
    Lyrica and Pristiq to maintain bladder urgency and help with nerve pain and sleep.
    IC diet is my life now. Stress reduction is a MUST to survive this illness.

    I don't personally use any herbal remedies; if you try them, I suggest you try one at a time and a tiny bit to start with.

      It's me again. Since right now I am managing my IC fairly well I do not want to take anything new to cause a flare. I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome this week. Does anyone have an opinion on magnesium, omega 3 fish oil and vitamin D? Do any of these make IC more comfortable or maybe make IC feel worse? Please let me know if you have taken these while you have been diagnosed with IC. Thanks for your help!
