Question about Elmiron and Prelief
I was wondering if anyone knew if it hurts to take Preleif with Elmiron. I was recently diagnosed with IC and am on Elmiron for 2 years, but Ihave been reading about Prelief and am thinking of trying it, if it doesn't interact with theElmiron. Thanks for any help, Mary
Also, can you buy Prelief in canada?

I have been taking Prelief just fine with Elmiron...I don't know about buying it in Canada..I live near Seattle and I get mine at Walgreens..After suffering with IC for 40 years, my bladder was removed in Dec 05...YAY!

No, unfortunately we can not get Prelief in Canada..I grew up on a border town and was just there for a visit... My brother took me into Vermont and I stocked up..If you know anyone who can get it for you that would be your best bet...You can order on line but the handling and duty really add up. Have you tried Tums?...I have had to used them in a pinch.. or even 1tsp of baking soda in a cup of water..But be carefull with that if you have high blood pressure.
Hopefully you will find someting that works really soon.
