 1  yes Rash on face, emotional, sharp stomach pain, nausea, felt depressed. I was prescribed this for 4th relapse of c diff colitis. Flaygl didn't work, Vancomicin was not enough by itself so my dr prescribed this. Not working even though I'm on the best drug, according to the Dr 's, for c diff. Finally Dr 's did colonoscopy and afterwards told me I was colonized and would never get rid of it, and would have flares up from now on. This is hard to go through, but other people have other illness worse than this, so I don't want to carry on any further. F 43 20 days

DIFICID  (FIDAXOMICIN):  This medication is used to treat a severe intestinal condition (Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea) due to a type of resistant bacteria. This condition may rarely occur after taking antibiotics. Symptoms include persistent diarrhea, stomach/abdominal pain or cramping, and blood/mucus in your stool. Fidaxomicin is known as a macrolide antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of this resistant bacteria. This antibiotic works in the intestines and is not absorbed by your body. It should only be used to treat this type of intestinal bacterial infection. It will not work for other types of infections, including viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Unnecessary use or misuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
