C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

Have your physicians office contact the company that makes it they have programs. I also would check to see if they are affiliated with a hospital that has a pharmacy that can purchase drugs through a program called 340b. Trust me I do this for a living. Good luck

@losthope How have you been doing? I recall last year when I was dealing with Cdiff from April to October, you were going through the same thing. That was great advice to contact the hospital pharmacy. I took three different RX's for my 4 bouts of Cdiff. The Dificid was the last one and my co-pay was going to be almost $1,000. My gastroenterologist went through the hospital pharmacy and I ended up only paying $100 co-pay. And the Dificid was the one that finally worked. My insurance wouldn't approve it until I had also tried Vancomcin first. And I had even done the Vanco pulse and taper for 6 weeks and Cdiff still returned two weeks after finishing the taper. Hope this finds you feeling great. I'm one year from my last episode and hope I never have to take another antibiotic. Clindamycin really did a number on me.
