I have had IC for about 15 years. I tried Elmiron twice and finally gave up, as it did nothing for me. I've taken all the recommended drugs with little result. Soma was a Godsend for me, as I have Degenerative disc disease. fibro, IBS, etc., and I was able to take two 350mg at night and SLEEP! Now my pain doc won't prescribe it and I'm taking Baclofen. It helps a little, but Ativan (Lorazepam) helps me the most. When I'm flaring I put 2mg of it under my tongue and it quiets my bladder a little. I also found Gabapentin to be a major player in the cocktail, and since I started that about 1 1/2 years ago my bladder and the spasms have quieted considerably. I was in a very bad way, but with these meds plus MS Contin I'm able to work. Just something to think about.
Best of luck to you
