Hey guys
 
Well i had a GI appointment last week and he gave me another dose of Flagyl. He also gave me  Panaloc but not for acid reflux. He said it will help with the stomach pain when i dont have any but i did have it when i was on Flagyl. Also he is an intern and i dont trust his judgement because he is lost and doesnt know his stuff.
 
Anyone hear of this ? Im gonna start the Flgyl tomorrow. I have it for 14 days this is going to be brutal. Or does anyone know of anything else i can take to make the side effects less severe.
 
Take care guys

Here's a link to tell you about Pantoloc: http://chealth.canoe.ca/drug_info_details.asp?brand_name_id=47&rot=2#Indication it says it's often used in combination with an antibiotic (Flagyl) to combat bacteria.

February 04: Rushed to hospital with severe blood haemorrhage. Diagnosed with indeterminate UC in 2/3 of my bowel. Treated with heavy doses of Pred; started Salofalk tabs and sups.

 

April 06: First major flare – more haemorrhaging. Colonoscopy once against confirmed indeterminate UC.

 

May 06: Started 40 mg Pred. Weaned down to 10mg by July 8, held at 10mg until December 20, tapering 1mg every 2 weeks, 5mg a day as of February 14. All this plus 10 Salofalk tabs daily.

 

Jan through May 2007: Suffering from severe headaches and vomiting likely caused by prednisone.

 

Feb 26 07: Started Imuran with continued success.

 

May 12 07: Final dose of prednisone after 50 weeks!

Flagyl is an antibiotic, make sure you're taking a good probiotic daily and take your probiotic at least 2 hours after you're done taking your flagyl (antibiotic) for the day, antis kill everything, IBDers tend to have bacterial over-growth so taking a good probiotic daily and indefinitely is essential to bring balance to the gut flora.

I use primadophilus reuteri made by natures way, it's been very helpful.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
