    If I remember right elmiron has blood thinning characteristics.I remember discontinuing the elmiron right before my biopsy was done.I was told to get off of it before the biopsy.Also I believe I had to stop my Lipitor too because it also is an anticoagulant.Ic seems to cause the bladder to bleed by itself.You may need to check with your doctor about that.

    Blood in Urine

    I always have microscopic blood in urine, before Elmiron and now. It runs trace to plus 1. My Uro says a majorityof ICers run trace blood in their urine with no infections.

    Yes!! The same thing happened to me, and my doctor did not know that elmiron can cause this, I had to go through tests, colonoscopy, etc for nothing! because it was the elmiron!! You should still go to the doctor but you should know this, I was a little annoyed when they figured it out, hopefully it will be nothing serious!

    I agree that you need to talk with your doctor. It sounds very much like you could have an infection.

    I would definitly call the dr. Sounds like you have a uti, I doubt the blood is caused from the Elmiron. Roxie
