One of the best ways to keep track of your interstitial cystitis (IC) symptoms — before, during, and after treatment — is to keep a record that you can share with your doctor. Use this Symptom Journal every day for one week to track the severity and frequency of your symptoms. You should also record what you eat each day, as some foods may cause flare-ups. This will help you and your doctor notice any patterns and will also allow you to track your progress on ELMIRON®.
