  • NSAID Patch?

    My pain specialist just gave me a Flector Patch to try. She said that only 2% of the medicine reaches the bladder compared to 100% from taking Ibuproferen orally. Has anyone tried something like this?

    That sounds very interesting! I had an NSAID cream that they used on my hip during physical therapy. I wonder if that is similar?

    Did you know that up to 94% of interstitial cystitis patients find some symptom relief when they change their diet, and that dietary modification is recommended as a first line treatment for IC? Check out the IC Food List to get started!

        Julie,

        My old IC specialist, Dr Rackley at the Cleveland Clinic said to NEVER EVER take NSAIDS. They do a lot of damage to the bladder.

        Just wanted to give you a heads up!!

        Many hugs and blessings
        MARY


        Serenity isn't freedom from the storm.....it's peace within the storm.....I had my sick bladder removed Jan 7th 2010.....Even though I had many complications.......I would do it again in a moment.....I have no regrets......Sunflowers in memory of my sister who passed March 14th 2010......they were her favorite....
