Diverticulites

Doctor, is there any over-the-counter medication I can use for Diverticulites, when it flares up, and not needing to get to a doctor for antibiotics.
Thank you

Dear Mary
You may need to temporarily avoid all whole grains, fruits and vegetables, so the colon can rest and heal. Unfortunately you may need antibiotics - ask your doctor if he will be willing to give you a prescription for antibiotics to keep in the house for a flare up.
