i have always been afraid to take a vit c pill i know i dont get enough vit. i need to ask my doctor about it i dont think it would hurt me but still not sure maybe someone else will come by and have the answer the question I would like to know the answer too.
i have a craveing for OJ and took a chance and it did kill my bladder but I just had to have it but i havent wanted it since and that was about three weeks ago LOL.
shame on me but i did learn i wouldnt drink the OJ again.

:hi: I wonder about vit C too, and heard on the radio about Ester C supposed to be without the irritants of regualr vit c. Does anyone take Ester C?
Citric Acid is the bad part of the Vitamin C. When I took it before.....I bled. So be careful. Everyone has a different effect based on how bad their IC is.
It was suggested to try Pre-Relief, and I did try it with soda, just because I hate drinking just water.....I did not see any difference.
How about it IC Veterans? :angel: What can we do about lack of Vitamin C. What about Ester C?
I Have to stick to the diet, and I avoid everything not on the almost anyone can have it list. I am still pretty sick with IC and flares, but I know when I have eaten something that was a no no for me. I have not had juice for years, but I can eat pears pretty well now. Stay safe, dont take the Vit C without advice from your doctor. :grouphug:

I don't take ester C yet but I have heard of others that have without trouble.
I take 500mgs of Natrol brand Ester C and it does not bother me, I tried to raise it to 1,000mgs but could not do it.

I started taking Ester C a week ago and have had no flare ups, fingers crossed. I feel more rested in the morning. I take 500mg at bed time with all other meds. Thanks so much for your imput all of you. Have a blessed Easter. Rosie :thumbsup:

I asked my pharmacist about Ester C & he told me that if I cannot eat an orange, then I shouldn't take Ester C. So, I never tried it. He recommended that I take B-Complex without C in place of a multi-vitamin so I'm at least getting some vitamins in my system. I've had a lingering cold since Christmas & have had two rounds of antibiotics with no relief. It's my personal belief that I can't get over this cold because I can't have C. After reading all the posts of others who can tolerate Ester C, I'm going to give it a try no matter what the pharmacist says.
