1 doctor agrees

In brief: Usually antibiotics

Vancomycin and Metronidazole are the most commonly used; fidaxomicin was recently approved; Rifampin and Rifaximin are also used; non-antibiotic therapies: probiotics containing saccharomyces boulardii have been shown to be of benefit; fecal transplants are very effective in difficult cases; some patients seem to resolve the infection without treatment.
