  • exhausted, tired and week all the time. Is it the elmiron?

    (tired and weak)
    I've seen older postings about this but wondered if there was anything new to add, new ideas or info.

    I take Ativan and Atarax at night. Those do make me sleepy but shouldn't last through the next day right?

    Wondering if its the Elmiron.

    Anyone else just feel worn out from a trip to the grocery store? Never mind a full day at work, I go straight to my couch/bed and heating blanket after work.

    Anyone tried vitamin B shots? Do they/ can they hurt your bladder?



    Peaceful warming thoughts,

    I think it's probably more apt to be the Ativan and/or atarax than elmiron --- or if you're painful, that could be it. You might ask your doctor about possibly trying other meds at night --- or maybe take them earlier in the evening.

    Sending gentle hugs,

      Donna is right, that used to happen to me too if I took It too late at night. I would try taking it around dinner time. If still feeling so tired def talk with the doctor. The Ativan I eventually stopped for that reason and took on an as needed basis or say every other day. Of course discuss that with your doc! Feel better soon!

      Status: Diagnosed October 2006 via cystoscopy with hydrodistention. Max anesthetized bladder capacity only 250 cc's. Mast cells and pinpoint bleeding found.

      Remission for me means less pain for more days than not. Frequency is inevitable with a bladder this tiny! That is ok though. The difference between when I was diagnosed and now, is that I have embraced that fact. Me and the loo, we are one.

        If my IC is highly symptomatic, I get very tired.
