  • Similar medications to dex

    For those of you who have improved from taking dex, I'm curious if any other related medications have helped you. For example, Sudafed (pseudoephedrine) is a related medication (in the class of medications called "sympathomimetics") that generally has fewer side effects. For many people with IC taking Sudafed causes flareups, but for a few people (such as myself), it actually reduces symptoms. I wonder if that is the case for anyone else here.
    Clinical trial participants are urgently needed for research on IC/PBS to move forward. ICN Clinical Trials Page.

    Sudafed is a definite trigger for me. I don't dare take even one.

    Stay safe
