Elmiron and interstitial cystitis, Bacterial Infections found

I've taken Elmiron since 2012. Honestly, I found that I had bacterial infections that were not found by a normal lab. I used PathOGenius, in Lubbock TX. Molecular testing is the only way to identify these Biofilms. If you have a toe fungus, a sore, a upper respiratory infection that just wont go away, get in touch with PathOGenius or Granger Labs. My urine was sent to them and it took around 3 weeks to get all results back. Believe me, I am so much better! I was house bound before. ## I'm interested in your case. I take Elmiron for IC and for the past month have had several test in my vaginal area as I know I have an infection. Even the physicians say upon looking it at the presentation it appears abnormal but all tests keep coming back normal. I'm tempted to just take some ...

my 50lb dog ate a 100mg elmiron will this hurt her

my 50lb dog ate a 100mg elmiron that fell on the floor. Will this hurt her? ## Hi Dena, Sorry to hear about your dog getting ahold of this drug. Being that Elmiron has blood thinning effects, I've read on one account that internal bleeding is a possibility among other common side effects (such as vomiting or diarrhea). In light of that it may be a good idea to look out for any signs of blood in her urine or stool. However, I would still encourage you to contact her vet as soon as possible for an examination. That way you can at least be on the safe side. Can you tell if she's been feeling ok lately?
