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,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
