Sorry if you've already seen my other post to this effect; I'm just desperate for some help and don't know where else to try.
I was diagnosed with methane-predominant SIBO (very high, baseline was 50+). I think I've had it for more than 10 years and am willing to try almost anything at this point.
I was prescribed Neomycin, 4gm daily for 10 days. After checking the potential side effects, I'm not sure I want to take it.
Has anyone else had a good result from Neomycin? What dose did you take? 4gm a day sounds very high to me -- it looks like Dr. Pimental used 1gm in his SIBO studies. As the risk of hearing and kidney problems increases with a bigger dose, I'd like to take the minimum that can be effective.
Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!
