Kifer Taper method of Vancomycin

Postby Carlson » Wed Dec 06, 2017 4:43 pm

My husband took three antibiotic treatments to beat C-diff. The last time he used the taper method. It took 6 weeks, basically 2 weeks at 4 times a day, 2 weeks 3 times a day, 2 weeks at 2 times per day and finally 2 weeks at once per day. He also would drink 5 ounces of kefir three times per day, allowing an hour or so after the pills so they would not kill the probiotics in the kefir. That was as instructed by the contagious disease doctor. He also took another probiotic called pearls once per day as an extra probiotic on his own. They are not supposed to dissolve until passing through the stomach. He has been syptom free for over 45 days. We believe that he is cured. He used separate bathroom, bleached clothes, and dishes. I wanted to encourage others, not to feel hopeless.

Great to hear he is doing well, we have had many on the site that have done well with a Vanco taper. We also have many posters who have used Kifer and continue to drink it Post CDIFF.
Wishing him continued health!
