My sister is 20 years old. She has a problem of frequent urination. She has to urinate numerous times. She has undergone cystoscopy and urodynamics test. She has a small and weak bladder with 350 mL capacity. But, the reason behind frequent urination has to be diagnosed still. The doctor has a doubt of IC that is, interstitial cystitis. She is taking Cystopen thrice a day and Cranpac-D once a day for two months. But, there is no significant relief. I want to know whether the treatment is right.
