  • It may cause reddish discoloration of urine. This is normal and harmless.
  • Stop taking Rcifax Tablet and inform your doctor if your diarrhoea gets worse or starts to contain blood or mucus.
  • Finish the full course of the medication, even if you feel better. Stopping the course early increases the risk of coming back of the infection.
