No..you should have it checked to make sure nothing else is going on. Adding an antibiotic to the mix will only confuse the issue...assuming it's been taken care of if you improve.
I don't know...for me, I'd rather know what "it" could be before treating it.
When I have mucus or "stuff",it's pretty much when I'm flaring....but on occasion, if I eat too much of something that's rich in fat or spices or out of the ordinary for me, I may have some excess production of mucus for a dayor two....it wouldn't be continual, however.
Because what you are having is continuing and it can easily be considered a flare, I'm only suggesting you ask your doctor to culture it in case there's something else going on...you know...rather than "ass"uming.
My take on it.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
