    I have had very good luck with Lexapro and klonopin. I have been on these two for ages and i know they didn't cause my IC. I just developed IC this year. You might want to ask your doctor about combining those two. or any other options for anxiety, etc

        Medications can effect us so differently. If you're doing well on a specific medication, I suggest you continue with it. It would be wonderful if we all reacted the same to medications and treatments, wouldn't it?

        Stay safe

          I agree with Donna. I don't think there are any specific meds that help more or less for IC patients; it's just about finding the best one for you. Like I took Klonopin and Lexapro and had horrid side effects that made me stop taking them. I would just make sure that the medication you choose doesn't interact poorly with any IC meds you are currently taking (if you are).

          I hope you find something to relieve your anxiety!
