    I take Elmiron, Vicoprofen, and Omeprazole.

    I was taking Detrol LA which was awlful because it was easily for me to get heat stroke, just a few minutes I could stay out in extreme heat. Since I have been taking Vicoprofen more often I was able to get off of Detrol LA, which I am so happy about.

    People worry about me getting addicted to it but I worried about falling over dead with a heat stroke, it was that bad. I was not able to enjoy summer days at all.

    I know Vicoprofen is not good because of the ibuprofen in it and it can irritate the bladder but so far I am going ok with in. It definitely is not as bad as Detrol.

    I tried Vicodin which it don't have the ibuprofen in it and it gives me a major headache and it doesn't help me as well as the Vicoprofen. WEIRD.

    Take care, Trishann

    Wow - I enjoyed reading everyone's post about the number of meds.

    Wherever I go, I take my medicine "bag" with me - it is roughly the size of a briefcase! Inside are my daily meds, rescue meds, a TENS unit, etc.

    My husband will always joke with me that if we were on a ship that was going down, I would think twice about saving him or the briefcase - and after careful consideration, the briefcase would win!

    Hugs to All,
    BETH

    Listed in order of importance:

    Hydroxyzine (couldn't live w/o it for preventing flares)
    Kadian & Morphine (even though they don't work well, pain control is a must)
    Valium (best after trying 5 different muscle relaxers)
    Estrogen
    Thyroid
    Lyrica

    Elmiron
    Atarax (Hydroxine)
    Ultram (as needed, try to limit to 2-3 days/week)

    Look at it this way. If the Elmiron works you might be able to stop some of the other meds.
    I agree with the others. You are not taking more than a lot of people.

    I take Lyrica for nerve pain and Ambien for sleep. These are my two constant medications that don't change. On a as needed basis I take vicoden or fentanyl. There was a time when I took 15 pills a day.

    Ronda,

    You are such an amazing woman no matter how many medications you have to take to make it through a day.

    Warm Hugs,

    Kara

    These are the meds I'm on, but I think I'm getting off Yasmin birth control because I have a feeling the drsp in it is causing my flares.

    Ronda,

    Lets see, BC, Wellbutrin, Neurontin, Elmiron, Maxalt as needed, Phenergan as needed, Benadryl as needed.

    Here is my philosophy, I would not want to take another pill but if it has a chance of helping me like Elmiron(and you know my initial hesitation regarding that drug) give it a try. As the new doc told me - you may be one of the ones that it helps and heck if it does why not!!!!
