I've had tummy problems for a week that seem to be getting worse, so just in case I wanted to know what the standard flagyl dose is for c. diff.

Also, if you know the tindamax dose that would be helpful too.

Thanks,
V

Flagyl 250mg 4 x day or 500mg 3xday. If you think it is c-diff...I would stop the other antibiotics. Also, add florastor kids packs...2 packs 2x day and lots of water,

I tool Flagyl 500mg 3x a day and it didn't work, plus gave me the death fatigue. Took 10 days Vanco and that worked.
