I was diagnosed with diverticulitis in 2013 and lymphocytic colitis in 2018. My GI doctor prescribed me with Uceris in 2018 after the lymphocytic colitis diagnosis. After 8 days on Uceris I had a severe diverticulitis flare up. Mind you this was my first flare up in 6 years. I got on Cipro and Flagyl to handle the inflammation and all was good. 9 months later I wanted to start back on the Uceris to help with the colitis. Two weeks into this round of Uceris (budesonide) I had another severe diverticulitis flare up.
Is it just a crazy coincidence that these diverticulitis flare ups came immediately following me starting Uceris or could it possibly be the cause?
Any experience or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
