ELMIRON: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Interstitial Cystitis “My OB just prescribed this but it was so difficult to get approved on my insurance. It took about a month and wanted a prior authorization. Finally it got it approved. Surprisingly it helps a lot with IC & Endometrosis pain. Mine is working pretty fast I take 2 tab a day at 100mg and 90 quantity. Works great but super expensive I wouldn’t be able to afford if I wasn’t blessed with insurance! Also I didn’t know it was a strong pain reliever but its for specific conditions of pain like bladder & IC etc. I use discount rx cards which give 80% off but is this the only medication that relieves pain but costs like 11 something a pill…pharmacies need to lower their costs to people in need”

For Interstitial Cystitis “Works great for IC But cost is a rip off. My insurance said they not going to pay for it any more.I checked the price of 90 , 100mg capsules ,It was $1000.00. This is the only FDA approved drug for IC.”

For Interstitial Cystitis “You can go to a Canadian Pharmacy just ask your doctor to hand write the prescription and then get the generic for a lot cheaper . Its not approved in the USA but for the price and if you can’t afford Elmiron then whats the alternative. I use it when I have a flare up. I get it online. $600 with Elmiron and $30 a month for generic”

For Interstitial Cystitis “Elmiron didn’t do anything for me other than drain my wallet.”

For Interstitial Cystitis “This works great, pain was gone in about a month. Just found out today my part D drug Insurance ,will not cover the drug anymore. And there is no generic for it. If you have Silver Script drug card like me ,it is hopeless . A one month supply is over $700.00”

For Interstitial Cystitis “I have had IC for 18 years now. It took the full 6 months to work but it worked. HOWEVER, I noticed that I’d get fairly heavy nosebleeds. My gums started bleeding. I was hospitalized plus surgery for the nosebleeds. In 2015 I ended up in hospital again. They suggested I stop taking it. No nose or gum bleeds BUT now starting to get constant UTIs and urgency. I have PTSD from the traumatizing hemorrhaging. Really do your research. If you see side effects like this. Stop.”
