IV Flagyl/vancimycin. Probiotics, hydration, racec
Hi thanks for using XXXXXXX
I went through the query and understood your concern.
is one of the most common cause of GI infection after being treated with antibiotics, and hence is also known as antibiotic associated diarrhea
. There are many bad reviews but no need to worry for all those as you have already been put on flagyl (metronidazole
) which is the drug of choice and will take care of your infection.
Along with flagyl I advice my patients to take probiotics, good hydration and racecodotril to reduce diarrhoea
. All these have a role in treating diarrhea. Also have green leafy vegetables and fruits more than diary/bakery products.
Since you are suffering from 8 days I advice you to continue all those I explained earlier and if this wont work, with your doctor's advice you can start intravenous Flagyl or Vancomycin
. These drugs will take care of you. If flagyl fails then intravenous vancomycin or metronidazole can be used.
Hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask if any related queries and I will be glad to help you.
Wish you faster recovery and good health.
