I'm gettin a Picc Iv for the 5th time and Vancomycin 1 Gram BID. X 2 weeks for Cellulitis. Can I Take Rifampin 300 Mg With It. Or Hold on.

Take the rifampin. Rifampin often is used along with vancomycin or other antibiotics to treat some infections, especially if caused by staph bacteria and/or in a devitalized area, e.g. poor blood flow to the infected area. If your doctor prescribed rifampin, take it as directed. An infectious diseases specialist should be involved in cases like this. If not, ask your doctor to request ID consultation.
