Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. I'm sorry to hear that you are having urinary problems with Interstitial cystitis. This is a problem that can take months to heal. I see that you have been started on medication.
Other medications can be added to your current regime:
Discuss the addition of Vistaril, Atarax, Neurontin or Elmiron to your current meds, you may be able to minimize your symptoms completely.
Also I see that you are being treated for Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH, enlarges prostate gland). Have you considered a surgical procedure, minimally invasive, TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate with laser). This procedure will help reduce the pressure on your bladder and make peeing easier.
I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please kindly rate me 5-Stars. Thank you
