    Have you tried Neurontin. I only have frequency- but my sister had the same pain you described and this is what her doctor prescribed to her. I know it is a heavy duty drug. But she in now in remission.
    My doctor told me she hasnt had as much success with Nuerontin, and that Elavil has given her patients the most releif. i suppose i could still try it. I'm worried about sleepyness though. i'm one of the very lucky few who DOESNT GET TIRED WITH ELAVIL!!! yep, i can take 50 mgs in the morning and not be wiped out. She wont prescribe Lyrica yet because she says its too new of a drug and hasnt tried it yet.

    Definitely, Atarax helps with nighttime peeing. It's saved my sanity; I thought I was losing my mind, I couldn't think straight from exhaustion. I was going more than twenty times a night. Now, I go zero, one, two, maybe three times on a really bad night. The difference is unbelievable.

    Night time sleeping

    Atarax is fantastic at helping you sleep through the night. If only I could take it during the day and still work
    It is a night time life saver ( in my opinion)

    Does Atarax help with night time peeing? My pain is under control with the diet. I still have to get up at night to pee though. It's been so long since I've had a good night's sleep though!

    Does atarax help with pain? thats my biggest problem. i dont even have frequency. elevil has helped, but i feel like i need more relief than i'm getting. my IC is mild, but i have a lot of pelvic nerve pain that makes me feel like i've fallen on a bike seat most of the time i dont even think its worth me trying elmiron because i dont feel like i have a real "lining" issue...mostly because diet doesnt really affect me.

    Cystoprotek

    You might be interested to know that Dr. T. the inventor of Cystoprotek advises patients to take Atarax with the product as he feels the combo of cystoprotek, and Atarax, and Elmiron is a winning combo. Atarax stops the mast cell formations, the other two build up the lining.
    You can read his reports yourself on this board under discussions.

    Hi!! Unfort. the really only true medicine that will help rebuild the bladder lining right now is Elmiron that is FDA approved for IC.

    Usually the Atarax is prescirbed to take at night to help sleep and the antihistmine in it acts to calm to the bladder down The Lryica is for nerve pain. It is not uncommon for newly diagnosed IC'ers to take Atarax in the beg to help with their symptoms.

    But just to let you know some people can control their IC with the diet alone. But it is all up to you what treatments and meds you want to use

    Atarax

    My doctor just prescribed atarax and Lyrica. I'm afraid of side effects from meds. I've been taking Cystoprotek and following the diet. Are the extra meds necessary? Can the diet and Cystoprotek heal my bladder? Thanks!
