Hey I see you were directed to your doc bit it takes forever to do so in my experience so honestly I was diagnosed at 18 now 22 was told I would have to take it my whole life I did happily for the pain relief however problems later.I decided to try the organic whole foods plant based.diet tailored to my bladder sensitivities the diet has allowed less elmiron. I only began after seeing other patients successfully get off the elmiron and one even in remission. Fatigue etc improve greatly also if your worry is so I am with ya on that and this has seen best results. Take care and I hope I helped:)
no one can say yes or know except you but i can tell you being ayoung patient i wondered that constantly and well i like healthy so i tried the whole organic plant based diet aka organic vegan and honestly i used to have surgery every 6 months and now i take half the elmiron and darpaz i used to and no surgery now for almost 3 years. I knew how well it worked when i went on a family cruise and did not have organic food my bladder started flarring and when i got back to my own food it improved again and my doctor did mention a patient that was able to stop elmiron due to that diet. it's something to consider trying it's really actually not bad promise!! (not having a bladder is worse eh? ) ;) good luck
