Anesthetic Cocktail

Because the bladder is suspected to be the source of pain in the IC patient, direct treatment of its surface may produce improvement of symptoms. The solution consists of bupivacaine and lidocaine. The patient is instructed to hold the solution for 30 minutes, and the instillation is repeated on a weekly basis for 8 to 12 weeks. Patients usually improve for a number of days, increasing in number of days as the instillations progress. An anesthetic cocktail can be helpful when symptoms flare. Worsening of symptoms and urine retention rarely occur as side effects.
