In brief: IC

Yes it does. Having said that, you need to do some diet modification and you may need to be carefully evaluated to rule out other painful conditions that co-exist with ic.
My personal experience has been very good(for my pts).

In brief: For many patients

Elmiron (pentosan) works well in majority of my patients with ic.
Certainly worth trying, but, please be patient because it wil probably take 2 - 3 months to become effective.
