i can't tell it has helped very much.
Took several months but I think this is finally kicking in.
My godsend.
Yes, I would say it is about 75% effective and would be 100% if I followed a strict IC friendly diet
Started taking as prescribed (100mg 3x/day) 4 months ago. Not a fan of some of the side effects- nausea, slight dizziness and a strange sensation in my feet, almost like they were tingling and hot (I had never experienced this feeling before taking this med and it has mild blood thinning properties so I'm attributing the sensations in my feet to be a circulatory thing, mild hair loss (seeing more hair in the brush but nothing terrible yet)
going ok
Not taking the Elmiron right now.
