Diarrhea-contagious: Since only 80% of c diff responds to Flagyl you should consider yourself contagious at least until the diarrhea resolves. There is also a relatively high recurrence rate so the real answer is you are potentially contagious until the diarrhea resolves and stays gone for a couple of weeks...
