It is important that your doctor check your progress during and after treatment. This is to make sure that the colitis is cleared up completely.
If the symptoms of your colitis do not improve within a few days, or if they become worse, check with your doctor.
If your doctor orders cholestyramine or colestipol for your colitis, do not take vancomycin by mouth within 3 to 4 hours of taking either of these medicines. Doing so may keep vancomycin from working properly.
If you are taking this medicine for diarrhea caused by other antibiotics, do not take any other diarrhea medicine without first checking with your health care professional. Other medicines for diarrhea may make your diarrhea worse or make it last longer.
