I was diagnosed with c diff on 11/7/14 and took 10 days of Flagyl. I am 67 years old and it came back within 2 weeks of finishing Flagyl. What are the chances of it coming back after taking 14 days of Vancomycin? I can't afford to take another round. This prescribe cost $429.00.
You don't build up a resistance to this one, unfortunately. If you aren't on the right antibiotics or you aren't on them long enough it can recur. Or if you are on antibiotics it can. It helps if you take probiotics. Your best defense is the probiotics and making sure you get to a dr if you start with the c diff stool.. By now you know. it exactly.
