I have been on Xifaxan for about a year and a half. I have not had an increase in yeast infections. I already have an issue that I take an antifungal med for but that is due to a R/V fistula. But the frequency of those infections has not increased. The Xifaxan has helped me tremendously and I hope I never have to stop taking it. I have to fight my insurance to pay for it, but so far they are. I just hope they will continue.

CD 19 years offically, 29 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Symptoms constantly but all tests show only minor ulcerations. Currently having multiple episodes of gastritis with no known cause.

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....
