  • Ordered CystoProtek today, hurrah!!

    Yay! I finally ordered my three pack of CystoProtek, and I did it through the ICN shop which makes me happy.

    I am keeping my fingers crossed that it works. While I was taking Elmiron, I thought it was working, but within a week or two of stopping it, WHAM! Ow ow ow, all the time now, and I'm really scared to go through my pain medicine too quickly. BUt it started to hurt so much! I stopped the Elmiron because it made me eat all the time...and also made my stomach feel like junk, not really nausea, but I felt like my intestines were sick all the time.

    So here's hoping this works! I guess if the Elmiron was starting to work on me (albeit the wretched side effects) then I should at least have a little hope about CystoProtek. I also feel better that I am not giving Pfizer anymore of my money, hahahaa.

    I'll report back when I have some results, good or bad.


    Just diagnosed w/PFD - Oh Boy!

    What I have tried: Elmiron, Lyrica, ,Methadone, Vicodin, Norco, Cystoprotek, imipramine, xanax, hydroxizine, trazadone, a bunch of anti-spasmotics and more I'm sure I can't remember.

    OxyContin 20 mg AM - 10 mg afternoon - 20 mg PM
    Zanaflex 2 mg at bedtime

    Be my buddy?
