C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?
@pines All fluoroquinolones and clindamycin are directly linked to cdiff. Other antibiotics can give it to you also.

@ngorman25 Yes, I'm very aware of that. However, I never got Cdiff from any other antibiotics prior to taking Clindamycin. And after having the UTI during one episode, I was informed that Macrobid would be the "lesser of two evils" to take for that infection. Macrobid is a nitrofuran and Cipro is a quinolone.
