Jul 30, 2012 · C-Diff in Infectious Diseases

I believe that Cipro is one of the antibiotics known to cause c-diff. I wonder why the doctors would prescribe Cipro for either one of you. Standard treatments are Flagyl first, then Vancomycin if needed. Also, if you search this site for “c-diff”, someone known as “MOCN” has offered up a very good recommendation for treatment. Wish you all the best.

I know an elderly lady who has had c-diff multiple times. For the latest episode, she has receive 3 rounds of flagyl, so I believe they will be trying another antibiotic. But what happens if she developed a resistance to this antibiotic as well? Can c-diff become permanent? And what happens to
the patient?

Yup … it’s starting to go away. I bought some new handsoap. That may have been the cause. Thanks.

The skin on my hands is peeling off and both palms have a mottled appearance. Any ideas?

Ok. Healthy teenager. No illnesses, no meds. Then, she had a seizure and placed on anti-seizure meds. Dilantin? Keppra? How long did the seizure last? How long was she in a post-ictal state? (Meaning, how long did it take her to recover from the seizure?) How much longer after she went on anti-seizure meds did she enter psychosis. Is she still in a psychotic state? Active hallucinations and delusions? Also, is there any history of drug use? And, is there any history of mental illness in either side of her family? I friend requested you so as not to have to ask you these questions on a public thread. But if you are confortable answering them in a public thread, that is ok with me.

Ok. But what was her original diagnosis prior to the seizure? And what medications was she on prior to the seizure?

What kind of medications was she on? What kind of medications is she on now? If the seizures and psychosis began ‘after’ a medication change …? What was she being treated for at the beginning? Does she have any allergies? Sorry to ask so many questions.
