Diverticultis discomfort on my lower left side...

Can you tell me if Penicillin would help with the discomfort?

Please name which penicillin was prescribed & for how many days?

Hello Lisa,

As you are offline, I am writing the answer.

If you have any follow up query, I shall answer it when I come on line.

Different antibiotic regimen are used to treat Diverticulitis.

Medicine from the penicillin group like Ampicillin, Amoxicillin/ Clavulanate etc are used.

This will help to control the infection.

Chlordiazepoxide - Clidinium would reduce the spasm & treat the symptoms of pain, discomfort till the infection is controlled.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
