  • Honey????

    On the list, it is under bladder friendly. But I am wondering if anyone else has problems with Honey??? I made honey chicken for the first time the other night, and I have been burning quite badly ever since. Maybe it isn't the honey - but that was the only change and I already checked for infection - it was negative and I have taken pyridium. So I have done all the typical things.

    Anybody else have problems with honey?


    Current Meds:
    1 Elmiron 100mg 3x a day
    1 Cimetidine 300mg 2x a day
    4 Gabapentin 300mg 3x a day (3600mg)
    1 - 2 Atarax 25mg at bedtime
    1 baclofen 10mg 3x a day as needed
    200mg of Pyridium 3x a day (usually do in cycles - on for a week or two as needed) - I am very careful about this.
    2 belladonna and opium suppositories as needed for pain daily.
    Bladder instillations (Lidocaine, Heparin, & Sodium Bicarbonate)

    I have tried but failed -
    lidocaine instillations, heparin instillations, oxybutynin by mouth also called ditropan, tylenol 3s with coedine, cyclobenzaphrine, Ativan, vesicare, Oxytrol patches worked for 3 to 4 years and then failed, I tried Uracyst and had some success but my urologist felt that it was not successful so we moved on to trying something else. .

        I am fine with honey.. thank goodness because I love the stuff! I wonder what else is in your recipe... soy sauce, sesame oil...? Those are obvious triggers but maybe there's something else in your recipe that is the problem. For your sake, I hope it's not honey. It's such good stuff!!

              I don't eat it often because I'm diabetic, but it doesn't bother me at all.

              Stay safe

                If you also have IBS, honey is a no- no.
