Reviews for Fidaxomicin

SBH · Taken for less than 1 month January 31, 2019

For Clostridial Infection: "Broke out in red rash all over after taking just 1 pill - I am allergic to apparently . Vomited and had dry heaves for hours. Scary med. Awful to have C Diff - frightening. Price is worth it, if you can take. I think it is a very dangerous medication especially for older people. Maybe all."

Dificid (fidaxomicin) for Clostridial Infection: "This medication is just making everything worse: Stomache, severe abdominal pain like I never felt before it's horrible, I can't eat or drink, vision lost and the list goes on and on. I am on day 7 and I am in the hospital because of these symptoms!!"

Teresa -Elmira, NY Area · Taken for less than 1 month November 28, 2015

Dificid (fidaxomicin) for Clostridial Infection: "My mother in law had cdiff for 10 months. Flagyl and vancomycin were given repeatedly with cdiff returning after a day or two. I found difficid after doing some research on line. Took the doctors 2 months to agree to prescribe it. She took the difficid for 10 days and has been clear of cdiff for a month and has been able to resume her chemo treatments."

Dificid (fidaxomicin) for Clostridial Infection: "I took this for 10 days for CDIFF, had a relapse. Then I went on a long taper dose for nearly 3 months. During that time I had alot of abdominal pain, ended up in the ER. Did not feel well the entire time but after 10 months of CDIFF, I was cured"

Dificid (fidaxomicin) for Clostridial Infection: "Developed a severe stomachache six days after starting so stopped taking pending call to my doctor. Feels like a severe cramp."

Gertie 3 April 22, 2012

Dificid (fidaxomicin) for Clostridial Infection: "I have been on the medicine for 6 days with 4 more to go, but I am already 99 percent better. I just hope the next test is negative, because NO WAY can I pay for another round of it. I have had no side effects, but I had been ill long enough that I am still pretty weak but improving EVERY-DAY! Thanks to DIFICID 200 mg 2 x a day!"
