Flagyl Clostridium Difficile Colitis Causes and Reviews


What is Clostridium difficile (C. difficile)?

Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) is a bacterium that can cause diarrhea and more serious intestinal conditions such as colitis. C. diff causes close to half a million illnesses each year.

What causes Clostridium difficile (C. difficile)?

C. diff bacteria are commonly found in the environment, but people usually only get C. diff infections when they are taking antibiotics. That's because antibiotics not only wipe out bad germs, they also kill the good germs that protect your body against infections. The effect of antibiotics can last as long as several months. If you come in contact with C. diff germs during this time, you can get sick. You are more likely to get C. diff if you take antibiotics for more than a week.

C. diff spreads when people touch food, surfaces, or objects that are contaminated with feces (poop) from a person who has C. diff.

Who is at risk for Clostridium difficile (C. difficile)?

You are at more likely to get C. diff if you

  • Are taking antibiotics
  • Are 65 or older
  • Recently stayed in a hospital or nursing home
  • Have a weakened immune system
  • Have had a previous infection with C. diff or were exposed to it
What are the symptoms of Clostridium difficile (C. difficile)?

The symptoms of C. diff include

  • Diarrhea (loose, watery stools) or frequent bowel movements for several days
  • Fever
  • Stomach tenderness or pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea

Severe diarrhea causes you to lose a lot of fluids. This can put you at risk for dehydration.

How is Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) diagnosed?

If you have been taking antibiotics recently and have symptoms of C. diff, you should see your health care provider. Your provider will ask about your symptoms and do a lab test of your stool. In some cases, you might also need an imaging test to check for complications.

What are the treatments for Clostridium difficile (C. difficile)?

Certain antibiotics can treat C. diff. If you were already taking a different antibiotic when you got C. diff, you provider may ask you to stop taking that one.

If you have a severe case, you may need to stay in the hospital. If you have very severe pain or serious complications, you may need surgery to remove the diseased part of your colon.

About 1 in 5 people who have had get C. diff will get it again. It could be that your original infection came back or that you have new infection. Contact your health care provider if your symptoms come back.

Can Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) be prevented?

There are steps you can take to try to prevent getting or spreading C. diff:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water after you use the bathroom and before you eat
  • If you have diarrhea, clean the bathroom that you used before anyone else uses it. Use bleach mixed with water or another disinfectant to clean the toilet seat, handle, and lid.

Health care providers can also help prevent C. diff by taking infection control precautions and improving how they prescribe antibiotics.

Flagyl Clostridium Difficile Colitis Reviews

Thu, 07 Jan 2010
The exact same thing happened to me after I was prescribed high dose Flagyl for 5 days for suspected diverticulitis (painful bloating, frothy yellow diarrhea, excessive foul gas, etc.) my doc also put me on a Clear Liquid Diet for 3 days before I had this episode... I called 911 from work because I felt chest tightness, shortness of breath, extremely lightheaded, and couldn't stand up or walk without almost passing out. I was confused also with difficulty concentrating and speaking. EMTs found my blood pressure to be 170/100 and my EKG showed a "Right Bundle Branch Block". I felt better after they gave me nitroglycerin and 4 baby aspirins. At the ER my EKGs and cardiac enzymes were normal. A CT scan of my abdomen failed to show any diverticulitis- they told me it looked completely normal. They also said I was dehydrated with a slightly low potassium level which was to be expected after 9 days of diarrhea. They thought my episode was caused by severe intestinal spasms probably due to side effects of the Flagyl and ibuprofen I had taken that morning on basically an empty stomach!

I am currenty on Flagyl for a pelvic infection in combination with vibramyacin. This morning I took the vibramyacin and then was planning on taking the Flagyl an hour later, but I spent the this morning vomiting. I called the dr. and was told by my dr. to continue taking both but with food..vibramyacin said to take on empty stomach, but I think the Flagyl was effecting me from the night before and not drinking enough water in combo with the vibramyacin .. and I think that's why I threw up I did not take the Flagyl before I threw up, however, after I was ok and spoke to the dr hours later , he told me to continue taking both but I took the Flagyl thinking it was the vibramyacin causing all the trouble, I had stomach burning all day and then just a half hour ago I took the Flagyl again and immedialtey had I realized soon after taking it again that it is the culprit causing a heartburn like burning senstation in my stomach and lower esophogas... I am calling my dr. tomorrow again to tell him that I can't deal with this. I tried to push through since I want to be fully rid of the pelvic infection but this is ridiculous. It feels like a horrible heartburn burning sensation.
Fri, 09 Jul 2010
I took Flagyl for 5 days each day feeling worse nausea an inner agitation and yawning for air difficulty breathing.....felt like it was attacking my intestines and the body was reacting and going into flight or fight.

Treatment way worse than what it was prescribed for.I think it caused anxiety nearly panic
