I got a sigmoidoscopy a month ago and Dr determinedI have a small case of pouchitis. I have used Cipro in the past but it does little to help. My Dr wanted me to try CANASA but that was $1,000 with my insurance (No Thanks). She then prescribed CORTIFAM suppository and that helped clear it up but a month later I'm feeling cramps and in the bathroom 12-15 times a day. Plus, that med was $380.
Can anyone recommend a medicine to help alleviate pouchitis? I can then ask my Dr about putting me on it. Also, one that doesn't cost a fortune.
