  • Flomax

    Hi! I was just place on flomax by my dr today, I start it tonight along with the Atarax. Im not sure that I am too excited about it, but apperantly it can help alot with relaxing the muscles and preventing urinary retention? I am having a bit of that right now because of a flare b/c of antibiotics. Normally when I am not swollen I have no trouble going to the bathroom, I just go alot. lol What should I expect!????

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have little to no problems now with my bladder, unless I am very stressed out, I forget to take Elmiron for a few days, or I eat or drink something that I know is a trigger...(i.e) like eating a tomato or drinking tea.... Took a long time to get here, but it IS possible to feel good again I just want people who are new to know that IT CAN get better, and for every one person who is suffering, there are hundreds of others who feel GREAT because they have control of thier IC.

    What Works: Tylenol 3's, Pyridium, Elmiron (Going on 4 years now!) HOT showers!!!

    Medications/ Vitamins: Elmiron-100mg 4x's daily Tylenol 3's/Advil (flaring) Vitamin D, WILD salmon oil 4x gels in the morning, Women's ONE a DAY multivitamin (the gummy kind doesn't make me flare) and PROBIOTICS!

    Flomax is one of the medications that can really help make urination easier. If it doesn't work out for you, or if you have side effects, there are several other meds that also help to relax the muscles.
