In brief: No pills: do surgery
This defect can lead the intestines to twist on themself & cut of their flow & blood supply, die & leak causing blood poisoning & death.
It can also begin bleeding & that blood loss be deadlly. The best surgical out come comes from elective removal in a stable patient with decreasing success as an unstable emergency. It can be confirmed & reoved thru a laparoscope (tube) with minimal complications.

With risks similar to appendicitis, when a meckel's is discovered it usually is surgically removed.

In brief: Surgery
If a meckel's is symptomatic then the only treatment is surgery.
There is no pill or medicine that makes it go away.
