 3  C. Diff I am a healthcare provider and contracted C. Diff by taking Keflex post-op and working around C. Diff in an ICU unit. I was started on Flagyl and had an anaphylactic reaction after 5 days of being on it which is rare. I've been on Vancocin for 3 weeks for C. Diff and have been hospitalized twice for dehydration and C. Diff complications. We're awaiting the sensitivities from my latest culture but looks like I have Vanc resistant C. Diff. I get bad stomach cramps 30 minutes after taking the vanc and also some heartburn. Otherwise, it's been well tolerated. I take some pain medicine and heartburn medicine that makes me feel better. F 30 21 days

 5  c.diff none at all Amazing, after three days (which is normal, it takes about 3-5days to kick in) I saw relief of my symptoms and was almost normal again. By the end of the treatment I felt completely better. Great medication. F 29 10 days

 5  clostridium difficile I had to take it twice for recurring c-diff, and it worked the second time. No side effects for me, as other protocols have. Only take if absolutely needed because this is currently the best hope I've heard of knocking out c-diff. If over-prescribed or misused, this will become problematic like all of the other antibiotics potentially. F 39 10 days
