Has anyone had an overactive sense of smell while taking Flagyl?

Has anyone here experienced permanent damage from levaquin?

What's the Difference Between Diverticulitis, Diverticulosis & Diverticula?

I recently went for a colonoscopy, and an upper endoscopy. My PCP panicked, and I went to a different gastro Doc than I usually do.

When can I switch to a normal diet after an acute attack of diverticulitis?

I had an acute attack of diverticulits and have been on cipro/flagyl for 5 days. Started with a clear liquid diet for a couple days and advanced to a low residue diet for the last 3. I'm feeling very well right now and really want to go back to a normal diet sans seeds, popcorn, etc. When can... read more

I've been reading everyone's experience with Linzess but have not read of anyone needing to take it 2 x day. Lucky for you :-) Long story short, colon resection for sigmoid diverticulitis, followed by IBS-C. After several failed medications I started out taking Linzess 145 once daily,... read more
