Show: for
works now. took me six months to work. so glad it worked because I don't know what I would have done.
Not sure yet
elmiron works great for me as long as i remember to take it. the only thing i have noticed is that sometimes it makes me not all that hungry at times i usually would be.
it definitely works; I'm supposed to take them 3x a day but I forget all the time and take them 1x a day
it works, but i still get an occasional flare.

wonderful drug, been on it since it first came out. I would not want to be without it
Works better than anything else I have tried
on it again will see if works
