  • Javacid

    Hi, I just ordered my first package of Javacid. I am kindof scared to try it in coffee, since I haven't had coffee in almost a year. Has anyone who stopped drinking coffee for a long period of time, tried Javacid. What happened? Thanks for your input.
    Diagnosed with IC in September 2010, after suffering from chronic UTI's. I suffer from pretty bad insomnia as well.
    Prosed in the beginning of diagnosis. Cysta- Q helped heal my bladder.
    Amitriptyline (discontinued now, but was very very helpful), and Macrobid to maintain pain relief and get some sleep. Prelief and Marshmallow Root capsules/ or tea leaves, daily to maintain pain relief.
    Lyrica and Pristiq to maintain bladder urgency and help with nerve pain and sleep.
    IC diet is my life now. Stress reduction is a MUST to survive this illness.

    I have never been a coffee drinker, but many IC patients drink one or another of the low acid coffees. I would definitely start out with the caffeine-free versions and maybe only start with a half of a cup. See how you feel, then drink a bit more the next time if you feel ok.

    I do like tea, and even as lately as a year ago, I tried green tea again. Before I was done with my first few sips I was bent over in pain. I didn't even consider drinking the whole cup. It took a couple of days to get back to my IC "normal". I don't think I will ever try it again............

    Good luck!

    Did you know that up to 94% of interstitial cystitis patients find some symptom relief when they change their diet, and that dietary modification is recommended as a first line treatment for IC? Check out the IC Food List to get started!
