Vancocin is the trade name for vancomycin, the drug of last resort for many conditions including MRSA. It works by interfering with the bacteria cell wall mechanism and thereby halting it’s reproduction. In C difficile cases it is usually given after Flagyl has failed and is given via mouth rather than the normal intravenous method used for other conditions. Side effects are rare except in prolonged courses of treatment – you can find out more about these at the vancomycin page at Wikipedia and this page at Drugs.com
