    Re: prosirona versus neuroquell

    I had to google both and read about them. My honest opinion is that I would not try either one in my case. If you have mild IC-maybe. I have tried Voltaran gel, which is a prescription strength antiinflammatory that is applied topically, it does not penetrate deep enough to get to the bladder. I use it for muscle pain in my shoulders and my back, and it helps those areas slightly. I know some people get relief from herbal products, but they make my pain worse. Except Desert Harvest aloe, that is the only product I have tried that did not make my bladder pain worse. Of course, it didnt help- but I dont get sick as often so I am still taking it.
    If these products offer a money back guarantee that can be trusted, then try it and let us know if it helps.
    I have basically done every treatment for IC except cyclosporine and botox. Everything has failed. I live on pain meds all day. My diet is so strict that I now have multiple vitamin deficiencies. I have also tried numerous alternative therapies. I would do a cystectomy, but doctors seem to think living in pain is better. Currently taking Synthroid, Elmiron, Percocet, Toradol, Desert Harvest aloe. Interstim done 4 times, what a waste. Also newly diagnosed with Hunners Ulcers on cysto. Now disabled due to IC. A body of life, a bladder of hell.

    I have never taken either. If you're not following an IC diet, I suggest that as the first step. And there's a link to AUA Guidelines in my signature below that I suggest you read.

    I have to give a recommendation for DH Aloe too. Already on hydroxyzine,I started the DH Aloe 2 weeks ago. I only tried it because I was hoping to lower my hydroxyzine dose (it makes me sleepy). I am now sorry that I never tried it sooner. On a scale of 1-10,10 being most pain/twitchy bladder irritability I am a 2 on hydroxyzine. After adding DH Aloe,I am about a zero almost all the time. I tried a cinnamon roll at the fair(I can get by with some cinnamon) and I did have bladder burning, but only about 50% of the usual flare. I am very pleased.And I should add that I am not a big believer in natural supplements.

    Re: prosirona versus neuroquell

    I have tried all treatments - amitriptyline, hydroxyzine, elmiron, cystoprotek, cystorenew, desert harvest aloe, various different bladder instillations, interstim by Dr. Peters and Botox injections by Dr. Peters. Absolutely nothing helped and Dr. Peters has nothing left to offer me but cyclosporine and I am scared to death to try that. I have also done pelvic floor PT by three different PTs. No relief from anything. I am now trying a good brand CBD oil by my naturopath but does not seem to be helping. So frustrated. I need to find something to help. I have had IC for 28 years and it is progressing.

    I have failed everything, too except cyclosporine, which I am afraid to try. Just started on pain meds which help some. I am thinking of trying acupuncture, but I am not getting my hopes up. My doc says I am the only patient with IC he has had that did not respond to some sort of treatment.

    I have found acupuncture somewhat helpful-and my accupuncturist will treat me for stress at the same time,which is helpful (if I recall,the spots are ear & top of the head for stress).You have been through the wringer Holly-hoping that something will bring you relief.hugs,shorty
