I seem to get pouchitis at least once a year and sometimes more. I was wondering if there has been a poll on meds for it? I have not done a poll, but will if there has not been one. I would want to ask:
What meds do you take? For me it’s Flagyl and Levaquin.
What dose? Flagyl 500 mg 3 times a day for 7 to 10 days. Levaquin 500 mg once a day for 7-10 days.
I’ve done the above for 7 days each with success, but found 7 days Flagyl and 10 days Levaquin are good. That’s usually because Flagyl is tough on me.
I’m debating doing 7 days Flagyl but at 500 mg twice a day. One doc gave me twice a day like that 10 years ago.
