Hi, I have been rotating successfully on Cipro/Xifaxan to Cipro/Tinizadole for a year and it has kept my Pouchitis at bay. It is not ideal, but it works.
Duke did not accept BCBS this year so I had to go with a different provider . That provider does not recognize Tinizadole as an antibiotic for Pouchitis. So that drug would cost $1,100 per month.
My doc has put me on Flagyl instead which is not working after 5 days of 2 pills a day. Is there something I can suggest to my doc or am I out of antibiotics that I can rotate ?
