  • Headaches

    I've only been taking Elmiron for less than two weeks but WOW, the headaches I'm having are REALLY intense . The first one was a full blown migraine that left me in bed most of the day with a heating pad on my neck. Thank god the rest haven't been like the first, but I'm still dealing with painful daily headaches

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I'm seriously considering trying the Desert Harvest Aloe Vera if the headaches don't go away. Any thoughts on this also?

    Thanks everyone!

    I had to stop taking elmiron due to a headache side effect. I suggest you talk to your doctor about stopping it to see.

    Stay safe
