Yes... and I also read a study shortly before going into triple drug therapy a year and a half ago that indicated those who drink at least four cups of coffee per day respond 50% greater to therapy compared to those who don't.
Sadly, the therapy had such an impact on appetite and taste I was not able to drink coffee during treatment. Now at seven months post treatment and the treatment having failed, I am back to my regular use of strong coffee in the morning and early afternoon.
I've also gone back to my regiment of milk thistle and am adding alpha lipoic acid once it arrives parcel post. View Thread
