Exchange 5.5 - ESEUTIL /P recommended ?

We're having to deal with a possibly corrupted database.
The Isinteg -fix solved some issues (after trying ESEUTIL /D several times), but it's still pretty slow responding.

Did anyone ever use the ESEUTIL /P to fix the corrupted database ?
Is it dangerous ?

We are considering another option, using Exmerge to start from a clean database.
Any advice on this ?

I would exmerge all the data out to pst files. This way the corruption would not be copied. Then stop the information store service, remove the database and the log files associated with the database and restart the information store service.

A new database will be created. Then exmerge all the data back in.
