  • FYI oral surgery

    I found out the other day I have to have another root canal done. I was asking the endodontist about whether or not he felt I would need to go off of the Elmiron before surgery as it has some very mild blood thinning properties. He said no, I did not need to and that even when someone is on the "real" blood thinners they do not need to go off of them for a root canal. He said it's messier wink , but not dangerous.

    Diagnosed August 2001

    Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)


    Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

    I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.

    Just letting you know, thatI just finished 3 seperate rounds of oral surgery while being on Elmiron. I had NO PROBLEMS any of the times. I also check with my pharmacist on everything as well. I don't want anything to mess up my elmiron.

        Same with me. For some reason, I don't take it that morning --- psychological effect, I guess --- but it is a really mild blood thinner, so I have not had any problems. Now if only I could avoid the tooth/gum surgeries eek
