I have been having moderate to severe stabbing pain in my lower right abdomen for the better part of 10 years. I recently got seen by a GI physician and he said I may have Crohn's. I have been on several medications such as Asacol and Lialda with really no results. I also was told I was anemic during a seperate medical exam.
Anyone have any advice or suggestions? The pain is getting to be really tiresome and annoying.
Thank you.

Tablets you were prescribed are usually used for treating mild to moderate symptoms of bowel inflammatory disease.
When the above mentioned tablets aren't helpful in easing the symptoms, another type of drugs, like antibiotics ciprofloxacin and metronidazole are tried.
