Just saw a segment on the evening local news that Xifaxan may be helpful in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. I take Xifaxan for hepatic encephalothopy associated with end stage liver disease.(I normally post on the hepatitis forum) It comes in to two prescript
ion strengths 200mg and 550mg. It is an expensive drug so check with your insurance to see if they cover it. I am disabled and have a Part D prescript
ion plan. It is cheaper for me to take 6 200 mg tablets than the two 550 mg tablets a day. I have no side effects from the medication.
