Your doctor may have suggested Dificid for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Dificid, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Dificid without consulting your doctor.

Dificid Dosage

The recommended dose of fidaxomicin is 200 mg taken every 12 hours for 10 days. Fidaxomicin may be taken with or without food.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Dificid be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Fidaxomicin must be taken for the recommended duration of treatment, even if you are feeling better. This will reduce the chances of having any remaining bacteria grow back, which could cause another infection that could be harder to treat.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Dificid at room temperature, protect it from direct light and heat, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
