  • Can Cystoprotek be taken with Elmiron?

    I've been taking Elmiron successfully for several years, but just went into a flare (first time in several years, unfortunately). Before I resume my full Elmiron dose, does anyone know whether Cystoprotek can be taken alongside Elmiron? Or should it be taken instead of Elmiron?

    Thanks very much.

    I just asked my Uro that question and they can be taken together. I am going to take them a few hours apart.

      I know that some folks take both. I think it's a good idea to ask your doctor though.

      Stay safe

        Oh I have met plenty. I asked mine and they said they wouldn't be able to tell which was working. I said thats just fine. My concerns are in whats the difference.. I read elmorin is more synthetic and has shorter protein chains and implored that they would be wiser taken together. Still no more certainty on the subject... Maybe 2017 brings new information to the table i.e. the pros and con of taking them togeter vs 1 or the other seperate!?
