@femalegolfer I agree with you as far as doctors waiting to offer fmt but I think there is some sort of rule that the patient has to have relapsed several times before it is offered. I also agree that clindamycin needs to be gone as I took it for an abcessed tooth in August. However, I think we don't have any chance of the pharmaceutical companies getting rid of anything. I just wish there was some warning to consumers as to the danger of taking it! And another thing, I think the pharmaceutical companies are trying to keep cdiff a "secret". I don't know about you, but I had never heard of it until I went to the hospital in September, where I was diagnosed. None of my family ever heard of it and most of my friends had never heard of it! It's right up there with mrsa which everyone has heard of.
