Hi. Ditropan XL didn't really do anything for me, either. I stopped taking it.
If your vagina hurts, though, I suggest going to a gyn and asking about vulvodyna. There's a really quick test that they can do with a q-tip to determine of you have it or not.

One a day didn't help me, I have to take one in the morning, one at nite. It helps some, but not everyone. :)

I take regular Ditropan (not the XL), 5 mgs 3x's day. I believe it's helping now, in combo with my other meds, Elmiron and Vistaril. When I was on just that alone, it helped for a bit, but then petered out, now I am pretty happy with it.

thanx all but its weird this vagina thing its not really a pain more sore kinda weird and no burning...

I stopped taking it because it seemed to give me bladder spasms! I startd Elavil and am now doing better. Elavil 25mg and Elmiron 200mg. twice daily. That's all I take anymore.:O)

Oops, forgot, I had vaginal/vulvar pain at the diagnosis time of my IC, as I have gotten my bladder under control, that has gone away -- thank goodness! The ache was sooo bad sometimes, I had to sit like a bird on a perch in my chair at home!! LOL!

With my combo of meds, I went from peeing 20-30+ times a day, down to now an average of 12. Not sure which one it is exactly, but might just be the whole package, lol!

Ive been taking it since oct and I havent noticed any help from it.

I take the regular Ditropan only when I flare and it takes effect immediately. Eliminating all fruit was the answer for me to get mine under control.
