In brief: No
Dmso "cocktail" often works very well with ic. It is instilled into the bladder and should not affect the bowel.

In brief: DMSO constipation
No; there is no specific relationship between DMSO and constipation - most pts experience "garlic breath.

Dsmo for interstitial cystitis does not cause constipation.
It cause garlic like odour from the skin and breath.And you need to have liver and kidney functions checked every six months.
