Depends . . .: Whether any given antibiotic works depends upon whether the infection is caused by a sensitive bacteria. For instance, common cold is caused by a virus and thus won't be affected by any antibiotic. Anyway, dalacin c is a brand not sold in the states. Whether the generic Clindamycin will work "correctly" depends upon what caused your infection. Ask your doc for culture & sensitivity. ...Read more

Given Suprax for sinus infection Given Lomotil (diphenoxylat and atropine) to stop diarrheaDid not workDiagnosed with C. DifficleGiven Metronidazole After 7 days diarrhea returned. Now what?
Possible, unlikely: Vancomycin is seldom taken orally, and when it is it can at least partially treat c. Difficile infection, although it isn't active against spores. When taken IV it is primarily excreted by the kidneys and little is likely to get into the distal colon unchanged. If it did it will not alter flora significantly and predispose to cl. Difficile overgrowth or toxin production by the vegetative form. ...Read more

Antibioticinduced pancolitis from amoxicillin treated w IV cipro (ciprofloxacin) 1 dose Flagyl q8 4d vanco po q6 4d 3 neg stool cultures home w vanco 11d should take?
Diagnosis accurate?: Colitis induce by Amoxicillin is usually due to clostridium difficile (not identified by culture). The course of therapy you are receiving is questionable, but then again you have not given a good deal of necessary information. If your diarrhea returns when finished with the vancomycin you should see an infectious diseases expert. Hope this clears soon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
SIBO, documented?: Treatment is often offered empirically when sibo (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) is suspected. However symptoms recur when the antibiotics are gone. Is this due to underlying ibs, regrowth of bacteria (or resistant ones!), parasites, altered GI transit, or something else? Bifidobacter-containing probiotics may reduce gassiness, a xifaxan (rifaximin) trial may help, but evaluation is best pursued now. ...Read more
Longer than you need: The two should not be used together. The Cholestyramine (questran) given to bind the c. Difficile toxin will also bind the vancomycin. Would stop the Cholestyramine and see someone more familiar with treating this potential fatal intoxication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
C. Difficile: Mild cases of c. Difficile infection can often be cured by discontinuing the antibiotics responsible.In more serious cases, oral administration of, first, oral Metronidazole and - if that fails - then, second, vancomycin and if unsucessful again, intravenous Metronidazole can be used. Relapses of c. Difficile have been reported in up to 20% of cases. ...Read more
