A 67-year-old female asked:
Can I use an antibiotic that I have in the house to start treatment for diverticulitis? It is clarithromycin 250. I have had bouts of diverticulitis

Not the right Atb: Clatithromycin lacks coverage for most of the intestinal bacteria that may cause bouts of diverticulitis. Would suggest calling your PCP if there is phone coverage, visit a local Urgent Care if not too sick, or go to the local Er.
