Hello
I am not sure what your medical question is
First, you can not get a prescription on line like that.
Second, you should not be doing this unless you are an MD, but then of course you would not need a prescription.
Are you trying to figure out the name of the antibiotic for her doctor to prescribe?
I am simply not sure what your medical question is

If it is diverticulitis, then it would be flagyl.
For example, cipro and flagyl.
YOu have to have a diagnosis, and other digestive problems do not generally need antibiotics.
But if it is diverticulitis, then flagyl would be the other antibiotic.
It is also used to treat some parasites.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
