Managing colitis with diet

Posted by billie3 @billie3, May 11, 2020

Has anyone met with success after following the diet suggestions from a registered dietitian? I’ve given up on Imodium and meds my doc has prescribed. I need to get relief from my flair-ups and put my colitis in remission. My doc is now suggesting I make an apptmt with a dietitian.

Hi and thanks for getting back to me. At this moment I am weaning myself off of Paroxetine ( this week down to 5 mg) , On Drs advice I am taking Miralax, & Pepcid AC 20 mg. Also, take Alprazolam when needed to help the anxiety that comes with getting off the Paxil. During the past few years I have taken antibiotics often, on different Drs orders. Most recently I went to the local emergency room where they said I had diverticulitis and went on amoxacilin. Three days after the ER visit my regular Dr got a report saying that the first diagnosis was for another paient and should be ignored. Still I was made to finish the antibiotic without further testing.?? They came up with enterocolitis on the second try.
