  • Cystoprotek

    Does anyone know if this is more effective than Elmiron or should be used in conjunction?

    the ingredients are glucosamine, chronditin and olive kernal extract which shouldn't be harmful, as most of us already take glucosamine and chronditin for other reasons.

    I haven't used Cystoprotek yet but I am on Elmiron and my uro said that ideally, the two should be taken together. She highly recommends it.
