    Sharon: I have been taking Elmiron since 1997, and I haven't had any problems at all. I don't know what to tell you. Sorry.

      I've read on here that the capsule is <usually> what causes the stomach upset; those that have suffered simply empty the contents either into a small glass of water, or into a gel capsule (found at health food stores) and take it that way.
      You can always ask your pharmacist for any ideas; since they're the experts they'd know best.

      I've been on Elmiron for a little over a year w/o any stomach issues.

      Feel better soon,

        I've been taking Elmiron since 2001. If anything, I had the opposite affect to you. Maybe, as suggested, try it out of the capsules? Good luck!

          I didn't have that problem with Elmiron but I had that exact same thing happen with Elavil. Boy what that excruciating!
