I was on Xifaxan for 1 1/2 years (800mg 2x a day) and it helped tremendously. 5ASAs were doing nothing and I was prednisone dependent. It never gave me full remission, but it cut down on the number of BMs, cramping, etc. I was put on Clindamycin for a tooth infection which gave me c-diff and had to go off of it (went on Vancomycin for that) Now it seems to make things worse when I try to go back on, but I think I have something else going on as I was on 2 rounds of antibiotics just recently.
