I just finished bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds for inflamed cyst, I also have been having chronic diverticulitis can these antibiotics treat diverticulitis same time?
Possibly: However if it is going to work you actually must have a confirmed diagnosis of acute diverticulitis, not chronic diverticulosis. You would need 14 days of antibiotics and a 6 week course of low/no fiber diet.
