i was on Metronidazole along with amoxycillan and vibromycin as an antibiotic combination therapy.
i did 2 2 week rounds of it and the first time i got rid of all UC symptoms until the day after the i finished. then they all came back even worse.
so i did a second round of them and had no improvements. then ended up in hospital for 7 days due to the flare getting way outta hand.
i couldnt move out of bed and the pain was horrendous. so much blood etc..
so yeah, i tried it twice and no go for me.
but i do know that it worked for 2 of my GI dr's patients. so i guess it depends on you and the cause of your UC.
