Colitis Treatment The definitive treatment of colitis depends upon the reason.

Initial treatment in the home might include a clear fluid diet every day and night, rest, and acetaminophen as needed for pain. Often symptoms resolve quickly no further care is necessary. Loperamide is an efficient medicine to control diarrhea. Acetaminophen or ibuprofen may be used for pain control. Depending upon the cause of the colitis, medication may be prescribed to regulate or cure symptoms. Antibiotics might be helpful in colitis caused by some infections.
