Hello, I've been reading these posts about the different antibiotics taken for c-diff. I was prescribed Vancomycin. I took them for a total of 17 days; then tested negative. So now I need to be very cautious about taking any antibiotics or as I have read, there are safe ones to take? I'm getting a new primary doctor in January, so I was told to by my oncologist nurse to be sure to report this information to them. The word "antibiotic " is firmly imprinted in my mind, as I definitely don't want to go through that horrific ordeal ever again!

Based on my husband’s experience with c diff, avoid broad-based antibiotics like clindamycin. Unfortunately, dentists often prescribe it. Several years after the c diff, my husband had one bacterial infection that required an antibiotic. His doctor prescribed a z-pack and he tolerated it well. Now we take probiotics to keep our immune systems healthy.
