Hi, I have been suffering from IBS-D for about 1 year now. I have loose BMs about 4-5 times a day. Mostly mushy stools, but also watery stools sometimes. I have tried a lot of different dietary changes, with no significant effect.
I have read about some people getting symptom relief after getting treated for SIBO.
I am thinking of taking a course of Metronidazole for SIBO. Is this antibiotic recommended? Has anyone else taken this for their SIBO and got some relief?
I have read about other drugs like Xifaxan in most forums, but I have a prescription for metronidazole.

I've taken both rifaximin and metronidazole for SIBO-C. Near immediate relief when I started on them, but my symptoms came right back after stopping.
