Question
Are there any negative health effects associated with long term use of oral vancocin in doses of 750mg per day?

Answer
Hi Madeline,
Generally  we use vancocin by injection, but I am  aware that oral formulations are  available in some  countries (not in my country). Nausea and stomach ache are known to occur in patients taking this drug, so also allergic  reactions  are reported. There are no other side effects reported.
All the best
