  • Tylenol and Advil

    My doctor told me that tylenol and advil are acidic, which i had no idea I didn't know if anyone else out there knew that, but since all kinds of acidic things seem to effect me I didn't even think about medicine. So just letting ppl know that didn't before :p

      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!

        It's interesting how different people's bodies are. I've never been able to take Tylenol. I'll be in the bathroom all day peeing! However, I've tolerated a number of other pain meds. So strange...

        Diagnosed: 2011 - have had symptoms for over 20 years. Diagnoses so far: Overactive Bladder, then IC, and now Myofacial Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

        Medicines: For IC am doing PT, and will be taking Gabapentin, Ativan, Tramadol and Ambien. Ice packs and drinking vanilla shakes help. Foods that cause a flare, tomatoes, yogurt, coffee, soda, all sports drinks, and most teas. Take Verapamil, Naproxen (as needed), Omeprazole, Frova (as needed) and receive Botox shots(every three months) for migraines. For allergies I use Claritin and Flonase. (Feel free to ask me any questions about meds.)

        Other conditions: Migraines, allergies, mild IBS.

          Tyelnol and Advil

          I take Tylenol with Prelief. I think without that, the Tylenol would irritate my bladder. I can take Celebrex with no problem.

              I've taken Tylenol with and without Prelief. Either way=flare.
              I do not understand why Tylenol bothers my bladder, but Darvocet and Vicodin, which both have the same main ingredient as Tylenol, do not. It's a mystery to me, my doctors don't understand it, but fortunately, they've accepted my word for it and prescribe the Vicodin for me (Darvocet is no longer available in the US, which stinks because it's more effective for me than Vicodin.)

                Kadi that just goes to show how different we all are and just as we listen to other people about what flares them (because we might pick up on something that is meaningful for us) we can't just throw out everything that someone ELSE flares from. I talked to an oncologist one time about my meds and she was not surprised about my routine of taking half a Vicodin with my Atarax at night. She says they use Atarax in oncology sometime because they often can use less narcotics to get the same effect, giving patients a better quality of life. I rarely have bladder pain anymore....just the frequency and urgency. Between watching what I eat and my meds/supplements I do pretty good. So hang in there everyone, you will get better...........

                  Kadi, I'm much like you. Can't do Tylenol at all. It's horrible. Just as decongestants. But many other meds are ok.

                    Vicodin & Decongestants

                    I am reading through posts to figure out meds. Been taking Vidocin (2-3 per day) for bladder pain and constant urgency/burning. I think the tylenol is irritating my bladder. Also decongestants definately irritate. Thank you for your posts. Figuring out meds is tough. I think I'll order some cystoprotek as well. I tried it once and it seemed to help.
                    Current meds: Elimiron 300mg (100 3x/day), Lyrica 200mg (100 2x/day) and simvistatin (cholestorol) and hyrocholorthyazide (bpressure). Was taking macrodantin (prevent UTI, however, don't get many so stopped it a few days ago). Take ambien for sleep.
