Hope everyone is ok. I'm having trouble now with trigonitis not responding to antibiotics and with no infection present, which I suspect is interstitial cystitis--which is like a bad UTI all the time, and it is probably due AI disease. I noticed that cellcept is being investigated as a tx. I'm on plaquenil and synthroid, which has brought my thyroid antibodies down some, but I still seem to be flaring all the time. Steriods seem to aggravate the IC and make me more prone to UTIs, and I don't want to become immune to all the antibiotics they shove at me. What class of drug is cellcept, is it really strong? do they use it only when you are really really sick? This IC pain, coupled with my constant neck pain and gi issues is just the cherry on top.
