Vancomycin Drug Information

Medication Information: Vancomycin is used to treat bacterial infections of the gastrointestinal tract caused by the bacterium Clostridium difficile. Doctor A small number of these bacteria are usually present in the human gut, and the number of them is controlled by the immune system along with other bacteria. But if the number of these bacteria exceeds normal, there will be consequences. The most common cause of this infection is the misuse of antibiotics. In addition to killing the bacteria that cause the disease, antibiotics can also kill the harmless bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. This allows Clostridium difficile to grow too much in the gut.

Symptoms range from mild diarrhea to dangerous gastrointestinal inflammation. In mild cases, treatment is usually not needed other than drinking plenty of fluids. But in more severe cases, treatment with vancomycin is necessary. Vancomycin inhibits the growth of Clostridium difficile bacteria.
