Hi,

Are you talking about flare up of crohns disease? If not can you specify your medical question? Thanks

Expert:  Dr. Muneeb Ali replied 5 months ago.

Since you seem to be offline, ill leave a response here which we can discuss later on

Well if it is a flare up of crohns disease then you would need to go visit your doctor to manage an acute attack with the use of several prescription drugs. In most cases mild to moderate cases may be managed with the help of salicylates like msesalamine. If those dont work then high dose steroids may be needed to control the symptoms. At times there is an underlying infection which is excarebating the problem and that can be managed with antibiotics like metronidazole and ciprofloxacin. In short a flare up of this problem CANT be managed at home especially if you are having blood or mucus in your stools. This would need an evaluation as well as further testing to be confirmed. In addition delaying treatment for management of a flare up can lead to complications in the future which can be permanent in nature.

So in short if you are having a flare up, get it evaluated now and dont delay.

Need my do natal an can't get ahold of my doc can u plz call that in for me only use it for flares
Expert:  Dr. Muneeb Ali replied 5 months ago.

Unfortunately we CANNOT prescribe online as that is against the law. in order to call in or write a prescription, a doctor patient relationship has to be formed which cant be done online, without it, it would be illegal for me to prescribe anything.

Another option would be to visit urgent care to get a prescription if you cant get a hold of your doctor. They will be happy to write a prescription for you.
