Trimox Safety Information
Trimax may cause development of pseudomembranous colitis (severe inflammation of the bowel) in some patients. The reason of acute intestinal inflammation is in toxins produced by a spore-forming bacterium Clostridium difficile, disrupting the normal intestinal flora.
If the patient experiences such symptoms as watery diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, fever, application of Trimox should be discontinued. Usually, mild pseudomembranous colitis dissapears over time, but serious forms require an appropriate therapy against Clostridium difficile.
