I have recently had symptoms of what I thought was Crohn's (gas, bloating, cramping, soft bowel movements). MRI shows no active inflammation. Tapering on Uceris. My doctor says I should try xifaxan. Anyone have experience with this drug?
Antimicrobials have been demonstrated to be as effective (if not more effective) than Xifaxan and are affordable. A good formulation is Gi Microb X. The standard dose is 3 pills twice a day (though some may need less, 6 is too strong for me so I used 4 a day) for 2 months. Also, the elemental diet is perhaps the best treatment for SIBO available. Tell me if you need more details.Also here in Canada my insurance won't cover it for SIBO! So it's wiping me out $$$ any advice really welcomed. Thank you
