Hi Katie..wow, disconcerting indeed! Flagyl isn't totally questionable when prescribed for UC, however. Do you mean he was supposed to put you on an antidepressant (as per another posting)....did you call the doctor to enquire as to why you were on it? What did he give you now?
You're of more help to many than you probably realise....you actually have great insight and aren't afraid to ask questions or share your experiences.
