  • elmiron/nausea

    Hi,
    I have been taking Elmiron since the end of Sept..I had no problems with and it has definately helped the IC.. However in the last couple of weeks I have been having sick spells to the the point of vomiting. I asked the pharmacist if it could be the Elmiron making me sick and he did not think it would be.. I would like other opinions.
    Thanks.

    Seems like it wouldn't be the Elmiron since you were on it for so long without nausea. Maybe ask your prescribing doc?

    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.
