Yes, Vancomyacin is the name brand. I must have gotten a generic or something cause I spelled it exactly the way it was on the little pill bubble thingie I get the pill out of. So far, my only side effect has been a LOT of gas. I guess that's a good thing. Maybe it's the bugs dying off? Who knows.

Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum.
