Can anyone suggest any alternatives to Rifaximin? I live in the UK where it's not available through prescription, I could buy it over the internet but then of course that throws up all sorts of problems in terms of knowing what I'm actually getting and cost. As far as I can tell Rifaximin is the best bet, but has anyone had any positive experiences with other antibiotics in treating their IBS or SIBO?

 

Thanks 

 

Gary

Hi Gary, looks like it should be available to you... under Xifaxanta or Targaxan as the brand name. http://www.cuh.org.u...7_rifaximin.pdf

Kathleen and Flitwit, thanks for the help. I'll run these by my doctor.
