  • What to use?

    I really feel like I need an antidepressant, but the SSRIs hurt my bladder more. Is there anything that I can use that won't cause me pain?

      That's exactly what I was going to reccomend. I absolutely love Elavil. It really helped me with me depression and anxiety, plus as an added bonus it cut my flares way down. I noticed within 2wks how much better I felt.

        I use Effexor - Originally I started to use it for hot flashes but found out it helps with my pain as well.
