What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Dificid is a prescription medication for C. difficile associated diarrhea treatment and used to limit the severity of diarrhea and reduce the occurrence of it by clearing the bacterial infection in the intestine. Fidaxomicin is a macrolide antibiotic class drug that works by stopping the growth of bacteria so that chronic diarrhea plus symptoms like stomach pains and cramping and blood or mucus in the stool are minimized and have less duration. You may want to make temporary diet changes while using Dificid medication to further reduce gastrointestinal upset and improve medication effectiveness.


Standard dosage guidelines for Dificid is to take 1 Dificid 200mg tablet twice each day at even 12-hour intervals. Medication may be taken with food or outside of mealtimes, and children may take a lower dose specified for them depending on their weight.

Always take your medication exactly as instructed in your prescription.


The active ingredient in Dificid is Fidaxomicin.


Inform your doctor of any history of major restorative heart surgery, allergies to azithromycin or clarithromycin, or surgery scheduled in the near future before beginning on Dificid.

Using Fidaxomicin may not be possible if you have any upcoming plans to receive a live vaccine or immunization.

Use medication when pregnant only if a doctor approves this course of action.

Overuse of antibiotic medications like Dificid may result in bacterial resistance and make future courses of antibiotic medication less effective or ineffective. Dosage guidelines shown in your prescription are never to be exceeded for this reason.

Be aware of medication's expiry date.


Negative drug interactions risks are possible between Dificid and other Rx or OTC medications, including p-gp inhibitors like cyclosporine. Inform your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before getting a prescription and proceeding to buy Dificid online.

Side Effects

Side effects from using Dificid are not common, but some users may have nausea, vomiting, or stomach/ abdominal pain. If side effects are experienced you may want to discontinue use and speak to your doctor regarding other chronic diarrhea from infection treatment options.
