- Has anyone had issues with vistaril causing ibs flare ups? and does vistaril help ic symptoms?
I have had IBS for almost 20 years and was diagnosed with IC about 12 years ago. I have been on Elavil for about 2 years and it was causing weight gain and I was starting to not sleep well at night past few months even when I take 3 of the Elavil at bedtime. So I asked my doctor if there was something else out there and he recommended Vistaril. I started taking it on Dec. 17th, 2013 along with Cymbalta and I stopped taking the Elavil. I started having weird dreams and waking up with headache everyday and not sleeping well on the 25 mg he put me on, so he said to double and see how that works. It didn't seem to help, so I was determined to figure out which drug was causing weird dreams and headaches and some nausea. I stopped taking the Cymbalta on Jan. 13th and saw no relief, so I stopped taking Vistaril on the 16th. On the 16th I had one of the worst IBS attacks I've had in over 5 years which also threw my IC into a flare up, a really bad one! I eliminated everything but water the 16th-18th and started taking the Vistaril again on the 17th. I DID NOT go back on Cymbalta. I have been in excruciating pain since the 16th, even with use of pain meds, heating pad and TENS Unit. I ate a somewhat normal bland meal last night and was up in middle of the night with another IBS attack which continued the next morning, to the point I almost didn't make it to work again. I have never had an IBS attack last this long. I went to Urologist yesterday and got a treatment for my IC, but still in pain today. I don't think the IC Flare up is going to go away unless the IBS stops. Any suggestions? Anyone have issues with Vistaril?

- Oxybutynin chloride and chest pain
A urologist prescribed Vesicare (and Estrace cream) early in 2013 for urge incontinance. When hospitalized for cellulitis (never had it before) in May (2013), I took lots of I-V Clindamycin. The hospital had Ditropan on their formulary, and the urologist switched to it (it was cheaper)--and I continued taking Oxybutynin throughout the summer (2013).
Before 2013, I had had rare episodes of chest pain (not proven angina) no more than once a year. While on Vesicare and Dipropan, the frequency of chest pain increased to once a month, then once a week, then twice a week, then every other day (by late summer). In July I had a treadmill-EKG (with radioisotope) in USA and my family-practice-physician said it was normal and that my chest pain is NOT heart-related. He took me off Indocin and I have since quit taking Meloxicam and aspirin (no NSAIDs now). I returned to where I live overseas in early August and continued to have chest pain with increasing frequency. In the city where I live, it is too hot in the summer, and too cold in the winter. I saw an American doctor (overseas) in mid-August and my heart rate was irregular (I've never been told THAT before). My blood pressure is usually perfect, but this time my diastolic BP was the lowest it's ever been (about 50). My EKG was said to be normal (except slow rate). My normal pulse is about 60. The doctor said the low diastolic blood pressure was my body's way of helping me "beat the heat," and she suggested I lower the dosage of Oxybutynin from 15 mg daily to 10 mg daily--at least until the summer heat abated. [She was concerned about possible synergistic effect of anti-histamine (Claritin) and anti-cholinergic (Oxybutynin).] Having no return of urologic symptoms (which were severe a few months ago), I have since lowered the dosage of Oxybutynin from 10 mg daily to 5 mg daily.
I am 68 (had total thyroidectomy in 1978, 3 C-sections in the early 1980's, and two total knee replacement surgeries in 1998 and 2007). I had elevated anti-TPO in 2012 and a new dx of auto-immune thyroiditis early in 2013 (but 98% of my thyroid tissue was removed in 1978).

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have a spinal cord injury and have frequent UTIs. In July of 2014 I began to have urinary leaking around my foley catheter for the first time in 35 years. I am having a problem with antibiotics not touching the current bacteria in my urine. I was prescribed Keflex 5 days before the initial leaking [back in July as stated above] and I do not know whether it is from taking the Keflex or not. My urologist wants to prescribe it again but after reading about bladder and urethral damage, I am scared to death to do so. I have taken many antibiotics over 35 years with no problems except for Levaquin for a UTI that caused EXTREME deep muscle and joint pain.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Occasional sleepwalking has increased with increased dosage of oxybutynin
From this study (1 month ago):
I suffer from severe reflux. Also taking Pantoprazole 40 mg and Myrbetriq ER 25 mg.
