What Is The Recommended Treatment For C Difficile Diarrhea
Vancomycin/Flagyl: Antibiotics (especially clindamycin) select for the overproliferation of clostridium difficile in the colon which can lead to profuse, watery diarrhea (and ultimately megacolon).

Is it possible to get Antibiotic-associated colitis without diarrhea? I seem to match up with all the symptoms but that, after a hefty triple therapy.
Dangerous C. diff: Yes, unfortunately it is possible to have colitis without diarrhea and if you think you have this, you need to be checked today by a doctor. Sometimes a patient may take an antidiarrheal or the illness itself causes a temporary 'bowel paralysis' so this needs to be evaluated for.

Hi I just had green diarrhea tonight I don't have a fever what do I have and how can I cure this is it something I ate or am I sick.?
Green diarrhea: Is not necessarily bad. Green indicates that foods have traveled quickly through your GI tract. Manage the diarrhea with fluids containing electrolytes.

All the best and be seen if you are not better. ...Read more
