    You do bring up a good point. I have a pharmacy here that is great and they have organic/natural products and the pharmacists are the best in town. I was going to check with them after I reserarch which products I want to try. I went there got a look around to see what they have and I'm pleased with the quality and variety. I am taking BCP, Astelin, Ultram, Atarax, and Elmiron. I don't think there is anything that would interact with the supplements... but I'm not sure. I will definately check with the pharmacists (and my PA). I don't want to take a diuretic at all, so no to the marshmallow root! Thank you! You have been a great help to me since I have been researching and newly diagnosed!

    Want to try something alternative

    I have read a lot about different kinds of supplements and teas that are supposed to help.

    Marshmellow root?

    Glucosamine?

    Chondroitin?

    MSM (oral form)?

    Aloe vera pills?

    Aloe vera juice?

    Can we take a Zinc supplement or do mineral supplementation cause IC flares?

    Why do some things work for people and some don't? I know aloe vera isn't a harsh one to try, but I don't know anything about MSM or the others I listed. Any advice, experiences, or help is appreciated!!!
