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.
" cataracts are know to occur more frequently in pts treated with dmso.

In brief: DSMO

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.
