  • need prayer

    I began taking my meds Elmiron and birth control at the same time and stayed broke out for a couple of weeks. Stopped taking both of them and it took 4 weeks for the rash to go away. I am now back on both of them and i would like someone to help me pray that I would be able to take both of them. This is very important to me and I know that we all have different issues with this disease and I keep all of you in my prayers daily. Bamafan

    Prayers for you.

    Have you spoken to your dr. about it? Perhaps he or she could suggest a different combination of medications.

      The Serenity Prayer:
      God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

        By all means, let your doctor know. When I take new medications, I try to start one at a time so if I do have a bad reaction, I know which med is the problem.

        Warm healing thoughts,
        Stay safe

          Thank you ladies for your reply. I did talk with the nurse and we found some different colored birth control pills. I have been on Elmiron for 5 weeks and my b/c now for one week and a half. So fa now breaking out. My neck does itch some but no little red bumps there. It may take a while but I hope I have found something that will help!!!!! My prayers are with each of you. Bamafan
