    Have you tried combining the Elmiron with Vistaril (antihistamine). It's worked for me. LDS

      Trust me I UNDERSTAND!!! I have had IC for about 7 years now and have been at this pass many, many times. I work, but I work simply for the insurance because without it I don't know what we would do. I've done it all almost, dmso, heprin, elmiron, pain meds, hydrodistentions, interstim. My problem is everything WORKS then in about 6 to 8 months stops working. It stinks, truly stinks! I work and go home and go to bed and try to live a normal life at 35 this way. Sometimes I just want to scream. People don't understand why one day I can be perfectly fine and the next totally bedridden. My husband even at times starts to doubt that I'm in as bad of shape that I am in. All I can say is keep on keeping on. I find that eventually I get to feeling better and the alternative is not an option for me.
