Description

Xifaxan (Rifaximin) is an antibiotic used to treat traveler’s diarrhea caused by the bacteria called E. coli in those who are at least 12 years of age. It is also used to treat irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea. Xifaxan works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This medication can only be used for bacterial infections and not viral infections. Rifaximin should not be used to treat a fever or bloody diarrhea. Xifaxan can be used to prevent a brain disorder, hepatic encephalopathy, that can be caused by severe liver disease. This medication may help you think more clearly. There is no generic alternative to Xifaxan currently available.

Always use Xifaxan as directed by one’s physician. If using to treat traveler’s diarrhea, Xifaxan is usually taken orally, with or without food, 3 times a day (every 8 hours) for 3 days. Continue to take this drug for the fully prescribed amount even if you feel better after a couple of days. Stopping early risks the return of the infection. If using to treat irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, Xifaxan is usually taken orally, with or without food, 3 times a day for 14 days. If using to prevent hepatic encephalopathy, Xifaxan is usually taken orally, with or without food, 2 times a day. In any case, take this antibiotic regularly to see the best results of the treatment. Inform your doctor right away if you still have diarrhea after 1 to 2 days, bloody diarrhea, or if you develop a fever alongside the diarrhea. Tell your doctor if your condition does not change or if it becomes worse.
