My PC doc put me on Cipro when I first had bleeding. It helped me for a couple of weeks, then I got worse again. I've since been on it for a urinary tract infection. I seem to be able to take it without throwing myself into a flare.
I know Cipro is one of the drugs sometimes used for C. diff, so maybe that's what your doctor was referring to.
