    Daughter your faith has made you well,go in peace, and be healed of your disease.(Mark 5:34)

    Tried:
    Detrol:only took one pill and it made me sick
    Elmiron:caused horrible pain(took 1 week)
    CystaQ:caused alot of burning and pain(only took one pill)
    Wellbutrin:only on it for three days as it caused alot of bladder pain
    Elavil:Took one pill and it caused a flare that lasted almost two weeks. It was the longest flare I've ever had. Never again..ouch
    Prelief:made my bladder burn and feel tingly.

    Take:
    Uracyst:Started May 19 2011
    Enablex:take one pill daily with no issues
    Naproxen:for pain as needed
    Baking Soda with water:as needed and it's a God send. It brings down my pain within 20 mins.
    Venofer: Started April 2012 by IV for low Iron. I do not tolerate oral Iron so this is the route I had to take.Does not bother my bladder but did have other side effects. I take Benedryl with each treatment to avoid side effects.
    Supplements:Whey Protein powder daily
    Dessert Harvest Aloe It has been helping alot but I can only take it every two days as my "die off" reaction has been severe.

              cbz1982 it has been so long since I posted this recipe I almost forgot it was my recipe. I just use preservative free shredded or dessicated coconut.
              Looking at this recipe you could revamp it and make a real milkshake by doing
              Vanilla Ice Cream
              Coconut Milk
              shredded coconut
              vanilla extract

              Now I want a milkshake..

                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
                where there is hatred, let me sow love;
                when there is injury, pardon;
                where there is doubt, faith;
                where there is despair, hope;
                where there is darkness, light;
                and where there is sadness, joy.
                Grant that I may not so much seek
                to be consoled as to console;
                to be understood, as to understand,
                to be loved as to love;
                for it is in giving that we receive,
                it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
                and it is in dying [to ourselves] that we are born to eternal life.

                  Thank you for posting this! My birthday is coming up soon so I am trying to find sweet things I can eat on that day! This sounds amazing!!
                  28 yrs old,

                  I have little to no problems now with my bladder, unless I am very stressed out, I forget to take Elmiron for a few days, or I eat or drink something that I know is a trigger...(i.e) like eating a tomato or drinking tea.... Took a long time to get here, but it IS possible to feel good again I just want people who are new to know that IT CAN get better, and for every one person who is suffering, there are hundreds of others who feel GREAT because they have control of thier IC.

                  What Works: Tylenol 3's, Pyridium, Elmiron (Going on 4 years now!) HOT showers!!!

                  Medications/ Vitamins: Elmiron-100mg 4x's daily Tylenol 3's/Advil (flaring) Vitamin D, WILD salmon oil 4x gels in the morning, Women's ONE a DAY multivitamin (the gummy kind doesn't make me flare) and PROBIOTICS!



                  Me in my graduation gown!
