Hi I have also recently been dx with Interstitial Cystitis. I have found the over the counter med called "Prelief" helps a lot with cutting acidity if I take 3 or 4 before anything I eat. I am also taking Elavil 50mg.h.s. which has relieved a lot of my discomfort. I still have more bad days than good but much better than before. You are welcome to E-Mail me anytime. Hope this info helps.
