medication for possible interstitial cystitis
My urologist is treating me for interstitial cystitis, as they have no clue yet what it wrong. I have hemmorhagic kidney cysts, squamous metaplasia, and so far one set of atypical urine cytology tests suspicious for neoplasm. I went in today and they took another urine cytology, and are not going to do anything else until they get the results of this. In the meantime, for my pain and bladder spasms, they have given me Doxepin, which is suppose to help IC. I read it is an anti depressent, so I wondered if anyone on here has experience with it? Could this stuff actually stop the pain? I took my first one tonight, and dont know what to expect. Also gave me a script for 6 weeks of Macrobid, but that was close to $400, so I can't afford it. I don't feel too bad about that,as I have never shown any sign of infection. Anyways,, If someone with experience and let me know if these pills can actually help, I'd appreciate it.
