    havingsuccess,
    Thanks for your reply. My urethra is not "liking" all that cathing, either, but I am hopeful that in the long run it will work...My Uro. has me applying Estrace cream topically every night to try and help with the urethral symptoms, so I hope it helps...Thanks again, and Happy New Year!

    I used to do both at the same time. It never caused me any problems but all the cathing made my urethra feel so raw I had to stop. Once I went into remission I stopped it altogether. It did make my symptoms better though. I would talk to the doc about your liver concerns. Good Luck!!

    Success

  • Anyone on oral elmiron and elmiron instills at the same time?

    Hi everyone,
    Just wondering if anyone takes elmiron orally and at the same time has elmiron bladder instills? I have just finished 12 weeks of elmiron bladder instills, once a week. I had another cysto with hydrodistension yesterday, and the Dr. told my husband that he wants to continue with the bladder instills and that he also wants me to take the elmiron, 3 100mg capsules every day. I have had no trouble with the instills, but am a little worried about the oral elmiron as I do have bad irritable bowel syndrome and have heard that it can be hard on the tummy. I also have to take lipitor for high cholesterol, and so I do also worry about my liver. I do have my liver enzymes checked for the lipitor, and I know they will do that while I am on the elmiron, but I guess I am just a worrywart... banghead Any thoughts? Thanks to you all for being so supportive.
