Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You will also need antibiotic course ciprofloxacin and metronidazole to control the infection.

Prednisone and lialda can worsen infection which often coexists with ulcerative colitis.

In resistant cases, you will likely need stronger medication azathioprine initiaily Iv and then orally.

Please discuss with your specialist today.
Best wishes,
