Why does Elmiron work so slowly? I need relief now.

Why does Elmiron work so slowly? I need relief now. I have been on it four days and there is no sign of relief for the pressure and constant burning in my bladder. Sleeping at night is especially difficult because that's when the pain is worst. Pease help! Thank you, Fran in NJ

If drinking 20-40 ounces of black coffee a day is pretty much the only thing I do wrong according to the list of things not to eat in order not to irritate your bladder, will the Elmiron work eventually? I ve been on it for 2 mos. and 1 week, and my bladder bothers me regardless of whether I drink coffee or not, so I figure...why not?

my dr wants me on a drug called elmiron rather than tamsulon which I had side effects from (the problem is a bladder issue which we need to keep open so it won t close up again. the elmiron has extensive side effects, so many more than tamsulson and elmiron costs $800 a month.

I have been taking Elimron for about 18 months. I have noticed that my short term memory is getting bad and seems to be getting worse. I m 83 years old and have not had this problem in the past. Is this one of the side affect of the medication. I started taking it after I started passing blood clots and some were blocking my urirnate track and needed to be cathedral. I have been getting better with this problem but still have a likable trouble. Any information would be helpful. Thank you in advance.. My E_MAILis Schwartz4234@
