Hi, I am 73, have had GERD for more than 10 years . It has been kept under control by Rabeprazole. I have had IC for 2 years, took Elmira for about 7months and stopped taking it because I saw no results. The IC has gotten worse, I now get bladder instillations and my doctor put me back on Elmiron. Now my acid reflux is coming back.
Hi, I've been taking amitriptyline to help my pain from rheumatoid arthritis for a couple of months now. My pain level has decreased by 85-90 percent! But I'm experiencing 2 side effects; burning tongue and insomnia. I was taking trazodone for my insomnia but my Dr told me to stop, that the amitriptyline would help me to sleep. Some insight on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, J
