I had bladder problems prior to starting antidepressants (possible mild interstitial cystitis?), and found that the AD's actually helped eliminate most of the symptoms (frequency and pain with negative urine cultures). In fact, I told my urologist that I was convinced it was the norepinephrine action assoc. with Effexor. Since he couldn't figure out what was wrong with me to begin with, it sounded like as good a hypothesis as anything!

Now that I've switched to Celexa, I have some concern that the old problems will reappear.
