I'm not familiar with Global Dry. Is it safe for all hearing aids? Thanks.

I have no input/experience with colostomy. I take Lialda for my colitis and it seems to be helping in that my flares are not as painful and intense as in the beginning. And, of course, I watch what I eat. Sorry not to be of more help. Good luck.

@hopeful, thanks! Sounds like we're on about the "same page". I take Flagyl only for a bad flare up. I agree with you about getting lots of bed rest. These bouts do take time to settle down. Takes patience!

Edda, I had good results with Flagyl. When I have a mild to moderate flare, I don't take anything. I go on a basic BRAT diet and soft foods, i.e., mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, etc.. Lots of water always. Good luck, Sue.

Teresa, I'm sharing some important info about Cipro. The following was in the People's Pharmacy newspaper column.
A recent Swedish study found that fluoroquinolone antibiotics, like ciprofloxacin (Cipro) or levofloxacin (Levaquin), are associated with an increased risk of aortic aneurysm, (BMJ), March 8, 2018.
Also, researchers previously linked FQ use with aortic aneurysm in JAMA Internal Medicine. Nov. 2015. The agency suggests that FQs be reserved for patients as a last resort.
I will no longer take Cipro after reading this!

@layceelu , I really understand you feeling alone. It's very depressing to be sick and hopeless. I do know that anxiety makes inflammations worse. Ask your Dr for xanax or something similar. Good luck!

Aug 12, 2018 · Diverticulosis in Digestive Health

Hello, I have diverticulitis and colitis. My doctor said to try IBgard which is peppermint oil. It didn't make a difference for me. I don't know of any other herbs.

@cupcake420, I joined this group over a year ago and can vouch that it's a good source of information. So sorry your post was misunderstood by someone.
I want to share that I read about a recent Swedish study that found Cipro is associated with an increased risk of aortic aneurysm (BMJ, March, 2018). Beware. I will not be taking it again.
