  • Heartburn

    I have had IC for about three years now and in the past few months I have started getting severe heartburn. I have heard the capsule from Elmiron can cause this? Does anyone have any helpful suggestions? My heartburn is very severe now with pain in my stomach. I don't know why I would get such bad heartburn when I am not eating any acidic foods. Any help would be appreciated!
    Just taking it one day at a time....

    Have you tried emptying the elmiron capsule into water and taking it that way, discarding the empty capsule? Some ICers have found that the capsule itself is a problem.

    Stay safe

    Have you checked the ICN Shop?
    Click on ICN Shop at the top of this page. You'll find Bladder Builder and Bladder Rest, both of which we are finding have excellent results.

      I have started that as of last night. Could that really be the cause starting now after over 2 years of taking it with no problems?
