Let met get this straight.  Your on Rifaximin, an antibiotic that does not get absorbed, your not having any side effects and its controlling your IBS and you want to stop taking it.  Put it this way, it's sort of like asking if a diabetic should stop taking their insulin.  I say it it works, you can tolerate it, and you can afford it then stay the course.   This doesn't mean you can't stop taking it and try taking another medication to see if it works, if that's what you want.

Almond water.  during breakfast, minerals moved around by eating some almonds will help D.  soak them in the fridge for 6-72 hrs and then drink that water.


Also drink Lipton tea.
